I used a sharp object to cut the sides so that CDs can fix in pipe.Coloured the pipe with dark brown color. used a cap of large fevicol tub,made a cut in the cap for the pipe to fix in the stand. decorated the CDs with pearls.
This is a pattern for a knit sweater - maybe this could be repurposed into a peyote/bead weaving pattern? Or if I simplified it, and used extruded squares of polymer clay, could I turn this into a cane?
