Fleur De Lis Bead
I started with mixing a batch of sandy yellow clay for the background color. Clay manufacturers are not very creative in their color options, so I like to mix my own colors.
Next, I formed the black fleur de lis. After this, I put on two more layers- a gold one and then another black black for a distinguished look. Then I made the three red rings that "hold" together the three parts of the lily.
Here is the large cane after the background was added. Next to this cane, you can also see the burgundy and gold stripes in formation.
