I have described how to make a simple flower cane here. Here is a video of the process, including making beads. This bangle was worn by one of the actors in Jane Cafarella’s play about surrogacy – “e-baby” which was performed at Chapel off Chapel (Melbourne, Australia) in March 2015.
Background information about the play “e-baby” Jane Cafarella talks about play (ABC Radio National) .
