scrap cane slices

So for some reason I have been hoarding scrap cane slices (including the first cane I made). Occasionally I have wondered why, so imagine my delight in discovering the Stroppel cane (see the free tutorial video).

My next thought was “how can I use this in a Natasha bead?”

So I did second iteration i.e. making a Stroppel cane from slices of Stroppel cane layered in alternate directions to make cubes with a centre that would be interesting on all axes. (Please comment if this isn’t clear and I will try to explain better). I then proceeded with the steps to make a round Natasha bead.
