Washington’s Dede Leupold hammers leftover bits of silver into soft shapes that harmonize with her canes for an elegant effect and easy assembly. Baked into the clay the silver also provides a sturdy finding.
Dede gravitates to canework and she has come up with a folding mirror to carry in your toolbox so that you can accurately predict how a pattern repeats. It’s a handy device to have when you’re building a cane that’s full of confusing color and geometry. Enjoy Dede’s spring colors on Facebook and in an Etsy shop for jewelry and one for buttons.

Dede’s colors just sing! She must be a joy in person.
Incredible work! This makes me even more excited to get started in this cane class I’m taking in the summer! Been working with polymer clay for a long time, for some reason the art of cane making eludes me. This is inspiring:)
