This is about mark three it my trying to make a straw berry cane. For this can I had a look at this tutorial on You Tube. Here is the link if you area interested in trying your hand. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QPzpyvqJmcM)
I have simplified a little.
|The ones on the left have the curve and more strawberry shape.|
Here the results. The first earring that I made are flat, the second are curves. Curves give life to objects – flat leaves me flat.
