TessellATed CAnes by Judy belCher
Much of the jewelry I create celebrates both left-brain and right-brain ways of approaching the creative process. Similar left-brain/right-brain strategies can be employed when making the tessel-lated canes for the Twirling Necklace. Use the left side of your brain to cut, mirror, and list the various ways your original canecan be recombined. Or exercise the right side by smashing andmorphing the original cane into a new triangle and create dozensmore tessellations.

1.
Using the Two-Color Skinner blend technique,create various hues of limegreen polymer and, with the pasta machine, roll eachcolor to a 1 x 3–inch (2.5 x7.5cm) strip on a medium thickness. Stack each strip, beginning with white andgradually getting darker, ending with the originalcolor, to create a gradated cane. Repeat to create agradated cane in turquoise.
2.
Turn 1 gradatedcane on its side andcut 3 triangular-shapedwedges. Repeat for  the other color.
3.
To create amaster cane thatwill be recom-bined into many  tessellated or mirrored canes,combine the wedges, making sure they remainstraight throughout the cane. Work towarda form that loosely resembles a triangle.Compress the cane, folding over any edges thatstick out, as they will form curved elements that are lovely when repeated. Choose a
point of the triangle and use your ngersin a pinching motion to rene the point
and press down against the work surface
 to atten the opposite side to form it into
an equilateral triangle. Turn the cane and
continue to rene. Reduce the cane so
each of its sides is 1/2 inch (13mm). Cut off  the distorted ends of the cane, as they willnot mirror well.
 Note:
Each of the 5 variations of tessellated beadsshown in steps 4–8 requires segments from this master cane. While you may not have enough of the master cane to create all of the combinations that follow, if  you combine the pieces gently, you can take them apart and try different combinations. Build at least 3 varia-tions of the tessellated design, as they will add interest 
toyourfnishednecklace.
