Oh, not my first cane ever, just my first (well, second) *butterfly* cane! To compare, this was my first butterfly cane:

I still think it looks lovely! But the silver does make the centre of the butterfly quite hazy doesn't it. 

Remembered another tip along similar lines- don't use stone-effect or glitter clays in canes. The particles of stuff in the canes get dragged by the knife and you won't be able to slice it nicely.
