♥me- your cane angel, Fran♥
December 1: Wow! I feel like an elf in Santa's workshop, wrapping
and sending everybody's gifts! Please remember, each order comes
with a complimentary, wonderful cane gift from me! I can just hear
these canes adding festive red stripes to the season here & around the
world! What fun!
I just completed a new batch of Butt
Beaters & Twisted Loopy Canes! They can be seen
here on the Royal Pains page! These are compact so
they're easy to pack for that night out, and pack a LOT of intensity!
It is Veteran's Day! Thank you to all who served!
I've been working on a new batch of British
School Canes. They are exquisite! About one dozen are ready now, and the
rest will take another week. Did you know that almost all of my weekends
are spent "in production"?
Shipping doesn't (usually)
happen on weekends, so I use that time to make new canes. This weekend I
put the finishing touches on several School Canes to get them ready to
ship. A few Whangee & Leopard & American Horror Story Canes got burned
October 23: It's been a busy week or two!
I updated photos and order buttons on the Wickedly Traditional page
today. Hopefully I didn't mess anything up this time!
Reviews of the new canes have been lovely! If you have photos, or
would like to tell me about your new canes, please do! I love to
hear from my fans! My best email address is
photo below was sent from a happy fan! Lovely, isn't it?
New Tiger Canes available on the Wickedly
October 12 I and the
canes returned from vending at DomCon! What a wonderful event!
If you ever have the opportunity to attend, I highly recommend it!
All of the orders from the week away were shipped on Wednesday, as
planned. I will now be working on finishing several custom canes.

The Flame-Kissed Canes with their beautiful Lamb Skin
Leather Handles are now
on the Wickedly Traditional Page.
September 26 Coming soon! I burn a swirly design
into the canes, and add a fragrant, supple leather handle. There
are multiple layers of leather so it is a comfortable, thicker handle--
for a sure grip! These will be great for those of us with
arthritis in our hands! I made leather handled canes years ago, but
stopped. Here are the updated versions! I will add them to
the Wickedly Traditional page soon.
The canes are 5/8" (15-16mm) thick, and the handles are 1" to 1.25" thick.
The high quality leather feels great in your hand!
Happy Birthday!!! ~Updated/Expanded!
September 1, 2018 Well!
They are calling for a rainy weekend here in SW Florida! What
nerve! No shipping on Monday- it is Labor Day here & all the Post
Offices are closed.
I am working on completing a very small batch of British School
Canes in the larger sizes. They are delicious. And the
special shown below is still going on. I am enjoying giving the
complimentary canes. It makes me AND you happy, so I'm going to
continue it. Maybe even permanently. It is fun :-)
I hope you're having a nice summer/winter wherever in the world
you are! I have many fans all around the world!
August 20: Still running the
birthday special because it has been fun choosing your gifts and hearing
all about it afterwards! (see below for details!)
Just spent one day in MA vending at the summer flea! What
a BUSY five hours! It was great seeing & meeting everyone!
Everybody fawned over the Crown Jewels & Sanibel Beach Canes! The
Tiger and Leopard Canes, and everything else got a lot of
I'm VERY sleepy after getting to the airport at 5am Sunday to
come home. There was a wedding party celebrating at 2am in the
hall outside my hotel room. I promised to pay them back when I
awoke at 4am but decided to be nice to them & let them sleep lol
Never a dull moment in the life of your cane maker!
August 1: I am expanding this very special special to
include everything on the site. Buy anything, and you will receive
a complimentary nice cane. These are not garbage throw-away canes!
I've been having so much fun with this, I decided to expand it to
include everything. No coupon code, no fuss! I will just
include your birthday cane with your order! FUN!
July 21: I am running a very special special!!! Receive
a complimentary cane when you order anything
from the Wickedly Traditional page. No codes, no coupons, no hassle. I
will include something nice that you'll love, when I ship your order.
:-) Happy birthday, when ever it is, from Canes4pain! Tell your
friends! Great time to get something you've been drooling over! I
look forward to picking out some cool surprises for you!
I worked on a new batch of Sanibel Beach Canes today. They
get a lot of attention on my vending trips. It is fun telling
people about where/how I gather the shells, etc. It amazes me that
almost everybody has been to this area for vacation, or to visit family,
I added "Shorty Canes" to the Wickedly Traditional Page. They are
Whangee Canes and Leopard Canes that are just as thick and wonderful as
the other versions, but they are a little bit shorter, at 21".
Easy to carry, easy to make your mark wherever you want! I've been
offering these on my vending trips and people love them!
July 13: I returned from vending at Beg, Barter, Buy in Ft
Lauderdale, and TESFest in NJ. I was able to speak to a lot of
people and make sure their new canes are perfectly suited to their play
style. That's what I really love about vending at events--
speaking to and meeting people and helping them select canes, and
teaching about the care, selection and use of them! Mega fun!
Many beautiful canes found new homes.
I am now on the board of directors of our local chapter of the
Florida Society of Goldsmiths. I've been studying jewelry making
techniques for many years and incorporate those skills in the creation
of the Crown Jewels Canes. I love time spent with my jewelry
artist friends. Their work is exquisite and inspires me to make
pretty canes for you!
June 12: If you've been waiting for British School Canes, they are ready! There is an ordering button for them
on the Wickedly Traditional page.
May 24: The lovely new canes are now on the Crown Jewels page.
See them HERE
They are as wicked as they are beautiful, and made to be used!
Each is one of a kind, with handles designed with gold silver, and
gemstones. Definitely fit for the special person in your life!
May 23: Today I worked on the Crown Jewels page of this
site. I think I have all the new canes' portraits where you
can see them, and began the measurements, descriptions and ordering
buttons for them. You can take a peek at them meanwhile, if you'd
like. I'm pretty busy the rest of this week with shipping, etc.
but hope to finish getting their details finished in the next day or
two. Take a look at them on the Crown Jewels page. I hope
you like them!
ALL of the canes are spectacular, whether "Bare Canes" ,
Royal Pains, or Crown Jewels. YUM!
May 22: Worked on the British School Canes today. I
think they'll be spectacular. Will be able to tell soon, when they
are cured and have had their time in the cane spa (oil soak). Will
let you know when they're finished!
May 16: Got home from DomCon LA last night! What a
great event! It was SO nice meeting some adoring cane fans, and
seeing many that I haven't seen for a while. I love that event so
My next project is to get the remaining six Crown Jewels Canes
on the website. I photo'd them before the trip, but didn't have
time to do the editing and updates while away. I expect the photos
to be on Canes4pain.com in the next few days.
May 13: The very popular Glossy Handled canes (photo
below) are finished! Each is sanded to a silky smooth finish.
This batch is lovely! They have nice, long comfortable handles for
a sure grip, and are beautifully balanced to fly straight and accurately
to their intended target. Beautiful, in stock, and ready to ship!
See them on the Royal Pains page. YUM!
There are eight Crown Jewels Canes photo'd
and ready to offer on this site. I am vending at DomCon LA this
weekend, so there is not much time to add them. They are
spectacular and can be seen on the Crown Jewels page very soon!
the new Crown Jewels Canes- not yet on the site.
April 27: If you are in need of
new canes, this is the PERFECT time to order!
Today I'll be finished putting handles on
many Glossy Handled Canes. It was challenging with inaccurate
weather reports. This work is done outdoors in dry weather. Very
pleased that this project is finished! These canes need their initial
spa treatment (oil bath) and trimming and sanding. Each one is
made- start to finish- by me. They are very close to being perfect
Now for the Sanibel Beach Canes, Whangees,
Crown Jewels, Twisted Loopies, Butt Beaters, Singapore Punishment Canes,
Leopard & American Horror Story Canes, etc.
April 26: I'm still fussing over some
new Crown Jewels Canes. There are some gorgeous canes in the
The handle style of the Fusion Sets is changing slightly.
Fans have told me they miss the "balls" at the top of the cane handles
in the Fusion Set Canes. Can you hear them? "Bring
back the balls! Bring back the balls!" So I am
bringing back the balls! The canes for the sets will be ready in a
few days, and then I'll photograph them and update the site with the new
photos. The Fusion Sets have a 7mm, 9mm, and 11mm cane, each with
an appropriately sized ball at the top, and come in Purple or Red.
They can be seen on the Royal Pains page of the site.
I expect to be finished restocking the Glossy Handled Canes in a day or
two (if the rain stays away) and will then begin work on a new batch of
Sanibel Beach Canes. Making the beach canes reminds me of days at
the beach. I love running my hands through the sand and shells
that I use on them. Mmmmm
In May I'll be vending at DomCon LA in Los Angeles. I'm looking
forward to teaching about and showing off canes all weekend! I
LOVE being surrounded by friends and fans that I don't get to see often
enough. DomCon attracts fans from all over the world. I love
it!!! It's a warm, friendly, VERY well run event! Come
see me & the canes if you can!!! For info:
March 18, 2018: What a fun week last week
was in the cane design studio! Here is a peek at one cane I've
been working on:
It is an exquisite Labradorite gemstone that I set
in ornate, vintage brass. This beautiful cane will be finished in
a week or so. I've also been working on completing several custom
canes. I LOVE the time I spend in the design studio creating new
works of cane art! It is right up there (on the "fun" scale) as
showing them to you at events! I love to hear the gasps and
comments when you see them! I'm sure they'll get lots of gasps
when you feel them, too!
This week I'm going to continue those projects
and begin a batch of Glossy Handled Canes. Those come in 8
different colors in 3-5 different thicknesses in each! They are
wonderful canes for everyone, no matter how hard you play, or whether
you want to have cane stripes or not.
I live in Florida. I saw today that Moonstone is our state
gemstone! I didn't know that! I still have one cane with a
Moonstone available on the Crown Jewels page of the site.
March 15, 2018: I've been making great
progress in completing several custom canes on the workbench & can't
wait to show them to you! My next vending trip will be to Los
Angeles for DomCon LA. Will have around 300 canes to show off
there! Join me if you can!
has all the info.
February 19: Wow! Valentines Day
has passed, and things are still super busy here! I think I am
still getting orders to be sent as gifts! I hope everybody
loves their canes & cane gifts! It was so much fun wrapping all
the canes in heart-covered gift wrap, I'm still doing it! I try to
wrap the canes in hearts all year, but sometimes run out of that gift
wrap. Wrapping in hearts feels like sending a hug with all
my canes ♥
February 7, 2018: Valentines
Day is coming soon! It is the most busy holiday for canes, and it
has been very busy here! Cupid is working to get great cane gifts
sent around the world! I'm delighted to be sending all canes packaged in
gift wrap covered with pretty hearts and ribbon. Almost everything is in
stock and ready to ship, and there is still time to zip a gift off to
that special someone, or even yourself! Order now!
After reorganizing the design studio, & working on commissioned
pieces, I started some Crown Jewels Canes. Hoping to have all of these
spectacular canes completed soon.
Work bench in the cane design studio.
This is where the magic happens.
November 14: Lots of new cane photos on the Gallery page!
I have several new Crown Jewels Canes in the works. Will show
November 3, 2017: Took a fantastic two-day class last weekend on
fusing sterling silver! Geared to people who make jewelry, I
consider this sort of learning as "Cane Making 501" college level
courses. It was put on by my chapter of the Florida Society of
This techique uses a special sterling that is a mere 1% more
pure than "normal" sterling silver. This allows the metal to be
fused and allows for some really great effects and textures!
I bent a lot of hearts out of this metal and fused them to a
sheet of silver. Sounds kind of plain and unexciting, but my
attempts are lovely! I am hoping to incorporate them into the
design for the next Valentines Day Limited Edition Canes.
Here is a photo of me (concentrating!) in class. I am the
blonde on the right, hard at work making cane sized hearts for us!
October 25: I think everything on the Canes4pain website
is in stock and ready to ship! I've been loving shipping your
orders QUICKLY! Planning to create in the cane design studio next
week. I have some beautiful pieces to complete Crown Jewels Canes.
Stay tuned- exceptional canes coming! I have some absolutely
delicious rattan to build these canes with! Can't wait to work with it!
Very excited about this weekend (Oct 28 & 29)! I'll be taking a
jewelry-making class, aka "cane-making 501". It deals with fusing
silver, but uses a "different" technique & a special kind of silver that
is not pure silver, yet has a higher silver content than sterling
silver. They still call it sterling silver, though. Looking
forward to learning all about it, and to spending the weekend with my
jewelry artist friends, working with this new silver! I hope to
make some special pieces that can be incorporated into cane designs.
Maybe hearts for Valentine's Day?? I love learning new cane
(jewelry) making skills!
August 2: Happy Birthday to us!
Order anything from the Wickedly Traditional page and you'll get a free
cane gift to celebrate our birthdays! Mine is coming up soon, and
I don't know when yours is, so we'll celebrate now, together!
July 20: I am fully stocked with enough canes to
(probably) last through the rest of the summer. I've been in the
design studio fussing over some spectacular custom canes. They'll
be finished soon! So, this is a great time to speak to me about
your custom design. They're great for gifts, or something very
special for yourself!
I have a new size cane that is simply breathtaking! Now
available are these 11mm canes. If you want marks, these are
perfect! They can be adopted by themselves, or in the new Fusion
Sets. Fusion Sets now have the 11mm, 9mm, and 7mm canes for a huge
range of sensations from high-pitched sting to a firey burn!
Birch Rods! They're back! On the Wickedly
Just a few of the canes I have ready!
In early July I was a vendor at TES Fest in NJ. It is always such
a pleasure when I meet & see cane fans face to face! We always share
laughs, caning tales, and knowlege. It is so much fun! I loved
seeing your marks! Thank you to all who spent time with me & the
canes during our journey. After vending, we took a leisurely trip back
home to Florida. A wonderful end to a perfect trip! Thank you to
all who visited the vending booth! I was invited back next year and have
been vending at this event on and off since 2004. Great event,
June 6: Finished bending the handles of a batch of British
School Canes. They look delicious. They got caught in the
rain, & need a few days to dry, then their final spa treatment, and
they'll be ready to ship! The new 11mm canes on the Royal Pains
page are lovely! Straight and strong, they'll easily mark their
May 14: Hiii! Everything is restocked! Just
completed batches of everything! I changed the Fusion Sets to
include a burning 11mm Cane that will definately leave its mark!
See the new sets on the Specials and Royal Pains pages! I am VERY
pleased with all the new canes! I also just completed new
Whangees! These are all spectacular! Also Twisted Loopy Canes,
Rattan Butt Beaters, Glossy Canes, Sanibel Beach Canes, American Horror
Story & Leopard Canes, etc. YAY! I know you'll love them as much as I
March 15: Ten spectacularly beautiful Whangee Canes are
ready in all three widths! They look (and look like they'll feel)
delicious! Finishing (sanding) a Royal Pains in the Butt Set in a
custom color. I hope their new owner loves them! I have a
new oxy-acetylene torch. Can't wait to use it in my metal work and
cane-burning! A 6000+ degree flame the size of a pin. Mmmm
what fun I'm going to have! I've wanted one of these for many
Canes are well stocked now. Looking forward to getting
them sent to you!
~your cane maker, Fran
March 4, 2017 Hi! Many beautiful canes are now
traveling to their new homes all around this country and the world.
I don't expect any more delays. I have a new batch of Whangee and
may start burning it this weekend. I do small batches when I'm burning things (like Whangee Canes,
American Horror Story Canes, Leopards, etc). Usually 4 to 6
canes at a time. It actually takes quite a while to burn each.
I enjoy it.
February 28, 2017 My beloved father died a few days ago.
He was 88, soon to turn 89. I was already planning my trip up
north to join him for his July birthday, as I almost always did.
Before my accident, I visited about five times each year, totaling
around 7 weeks. One of my brothers couldn't understand it. I
couldn't understand my brother's attitude. sigh...
February 8, 2017: Wow, things have been incredibly busy
here! It amazes me that Valentines Day is the busiest CANE gift
giving time of the year. I hope 2017 has started off well for all
of you, and the year turns out to be your very best ever! As
I enter my 17th year of cane making, I want to take this time to THANK
YOU for loving my canes! I love the challenge in bringing you
these implements that add stripes and smiles to your lives! Thank
you thank you thank you, and Happy Valentines Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Love and stripes to all!!!!
January 9- I
completed the update on the new canes on the Crown Jewels page.
Quite a few have been adopted to new homes this season, and I added two
new canes. I'm sure they and all the other canes that have
traveled around the world this season will be a cherished part of their
new owners' lives. Feeling very appreciative to all my fans!
I love making the canes that you love.
December 2, 2016- Still running the Free Cane Special. See
below. I added two new Crown Jewels Canes to that page. They
are very lovely, wicked canes. Take a look!
Click this link to see
Everything on the site is now in stock and ready to ship! All
orders are gift wrapped, too! I have
five new Crown Jewels Canes ready to photograph. There is even a
new batch of Sanibel Beach Canes!
Happy caning! Can't wait to fill your cane dreams!
November 5: VERY pleased to announce that tomorrow
I will be finished restocking the Glossy Canes-- lovely Black, Red,
Royal Blue, Purple, Hunter Green, & Burgundy Canes in a range of widths
from 7mm (1/4") for sting and welts, 9mm (5/16" my favorite!) for sting
& burn, and 10.5mm(3/8") bruisers! I've been very busy! They
can be found on the
Royal Pains page.
I've also been in the cane design studio working on Crown
Jewels. There are at least two to unveil this week- one features a
Sterling Silver Dragon holding a single tail whip. It is topped
with a working wartenburg wheel. Another cane almost ready has two
Sterling Silver monster faces (a two-faced b*tch?) and is topped with a
large red/burgundy Swarovski Crystal and dried-blood red garnet
gemstones. Both are approximately 11mm. The current
offerings can be seen (and adopted!) on the
Crown Jewels page of the site.
A new batch of Sanibel Beach Canes will be ready this
weekend, too! Bringing a little bit of Florida Sunshine to
everyone, they are covered with sharp sea shell shards, and sealed. They
can be found on the
Crown Jewels page!
October 20: I added some new canes to the Wickedly
Traditional page! Tigers and Leopards in different sizes!
September 21, 2016: Updated the site
today by fixing order buttons on the Sanibel Beach Canes, adding some
beautiful Crown Jewels Canes to the Cane Gallery, etc. Applied to
vend at Thunder in the Mountains (Denver in July). I hope to see many
friends & fans there!
Yesterday, I committed to vending at LF&P (Baltimore in October), DomCon
NOLA (New Orleans in November), and the Fetish Fair Fleamarket
(Providence, R.I. in February). Would love to get back to my old
schedule of vending at 15-20 events per year! My knee injury
slowed me down quite a bit. Hoping to get back to it, and am SO
looking forward to seeing everyone! I've been missing friends,
family and fans terribly. Can't wait to get back on the road!
I will be debuting NEW Leopard Cane Sets soon! Stay tuned!
Four Leopard Canes of different sizes, all burned by (my) hand and
finished to perfection! Wait till you see! Working on photos
of them now.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!
I am about to celebrate another
birthday, AND it is nearly time for Back to School parties AND
I've been working hard on the Wickedly Traditional Canes--
Rattan bending, burning, sanding, & tweaking to perfection. Shop now
for the best selection!
HERE to see the Wickedly Tradtional Canes!**
I've been receiving some
lovely photos, videos and comments from you! Please keep it up!

April 13, 2016: Lots of canes are traveling all over the world. I am
again taking classes- intermediate silversmithing, on Wednesdays. (aka
canemaking 501 class?) Working on a challenging hinge on a piece while
there. I hope to finish it soon and can show you the results!
Summer seems to be here in SW Florida early this year. Ready to
work on some summery cane designs soon.
Doing some touch-ups on the Canes4pain website. Also working on
restocking the glossy handled canes (shown on the Royal Pains page).
I have a lot of them in stock but am considering a vending trip later in
the spring, so I think I need additional finished pieces, just in case.
Still undecided whether my leg is up to it or not.
Had a fantastic weekend vending at the
Fetish Fair Flearmarket in Providence, RI in February, with the
assistance of ms kitten. Temps way below
zero, ice, snow, and 3000 guests! What a combination! It was quite
an adventure! Thank you to
everyone who stopped by the vending booth! It was great seeing you! I got to visit the Boston Tiffany store on my way to the
airport. I love Tiffany's sparkle and shine!
On the way to Boston, I spent time in Tucson with a dear friend and
found design elements for
future canes. The beautiful pieces I have planned for them should
be ready soon. The Tucson classes I took previously are not happening anymore.
I loved them!
Now home in Florida, I am once again a student! In silversmithing
class, I'm working on sterling silver rivet &
hinge-making, flower design for canes, etc. Let's just call this "Cane-Making 601
Class." Here is the latest photo from the rose I've
been working on for years. Curious about how long it takes to make
a cane? It depends... :-)
Checking to see if this rose petal size is what I want.
Yes, this IS
for one of my cane creations!
January 31 2016 Happy
Butt Beaters & Twisted Loopy Canes (below) make it VERY easy to give
hearts & flowers to special people in your life!
See them HERE
January 10, 2016: Wow! A new year! Very excited about
everything this year is going to bring! I am once again pondering
& working on a few custom canes, & some new cane styles & colors.
2015 threw some yuckky challenges my way (broken leg, transplanted knee
ligaments, crushed & replaced artery in leg, lots of hospital & rehab
time, etc.) and I am absolutely thrilled that a new year is here!
This week, I am finishing restocking the glossy handled canes (Royal
Pains Page of the site). They've been available for years in 8
colors and 3-5 widths in each. I have a two NEW colors-- a great
electric violet & a new metallic color. I'll take them to the
Fetish Fair Fleamarket next month to see if people like them. If
you can make it to the Flea in Providence, Rhode Island, please come say
hello! I LOVE seeing & meeting my fans! Leaving SW Florida
in February for a quick visit to New England is always exciting.
There is some very interesting winter weather there, but I LOVE seeing
That will be my first trip since April, 2014. I'm looking forward
to seeing how my leg reacts to flights, vending, etc. I think it
will be fine, but this will be a test. If it cooperates, I plan to
get back to my "normal life" of making canes AND traveling to see you, &
teach about canes and caning!
Hugs, gratitude, and heartfelt wishes for a great 2016!
December 28, 2015: As the year draws to a close, I'd like
to thank every one of you for your support, encouragement, photos,
emails, etc. I hope you have a tremendously fantastic 2016 with
lots of pretty red cane stripes! hugs!
November 29: Santa Specials are here!
Find these & others HERE on the Crown Jewels
know their new owners are going to be VERY pleased with them!
Can't wait to see who gets them and where in the world they go!
November 25, 2015: The new canes are now on the Crown Jewels page,
with descriptions. I worked hard on them and hope
you'll love them as much as I do!
November 24: The photos of the new Crown Jewels Canes are ready to put
on the website! Can't wait to show them to you! I'll be uploading
them onto the site, then adding the description of each one-of-a-kind
piece. Wait till you see these! Shhhh don't tell
anyone till they have descriptions!
November 16: I have some lovely new
things almost ready! Can't wait to show them off! Finishing
up some Sanibel Beach Canes and School Canes today!
October 28, 2015:
I LOVE my work! I'm putting finishing touches
on a new batch of Scorched TNT Canes, Sting Sets, Pink Glossy Handled
Canes, & Rattan Birch Rods. Our weather has cooled to below 90
most days. It is delightful to be able to work with temps in the 80's.
These beautiful new items should all be ready to ship on Monday or
Tuesday, NOvember 2 & 3. Completing a new batch of beautiful Crown
Jewels Canes. Lots of gleaming pure & sterling silver and stones
such as Malachite, Moonstone, etc. They are gorgeous!
Completed a new batch of luscious Medium thickness Whangee. It is
yummy! I'm sure you'll love it, too!!!
Taking a class on Chasing & Repousse on Saturday & Sunday this weekend.
Can't wait to spend a weekend with my jewelry artist friends, hammering
on metal. What fun! Our local Florida Society of Goldsmiths
is importing instructors to teach us. YAY!
Fusion Set in Purple
from the Royal Pains Page.
Also available in Black, Red, & Pink
August 25: Labor Day is coming soon! So many parties all
around the country that weekend! What fun! I hope my canes
travel with you and make your weekend enjoyable! Working on
Sanibel Beach Canes :-)
August 4: At least another month of physical therapy 3 times per
week. It hurts. The e-stim at the end of each session is
fun, though. It leaves me floaty and very sleepy each time.
New TNT Cane stock should arrive today! I'll make more Leopard
TNT's and Scorched TNT Canes. They are one inch thick, 36" long,
and great for warming the skin, or for lovers of thud. This is my
answer to those that say canes only sting, and are never thuddy. I
burn the patterns into the rattan. Each is unique and beautiful.
See them here
July 10: New
Crown Jewels Canes are ready!
Eight canes, seven months in the making. I hope you love them!
See them here: New
Crown Jewels Canes
My knee is still healing. I have physical therapy 3x per week.
8, 2015: Things are progressing
nicely. I've been restocking everything. The Glossy Handled Canes
(seven colors!) and Rattan Birch Rods in their complementary colors are
finished and ready to travel to you! Singapore Punishment,
Whangee, American Horror Story Canes, and British School Canes (in four
sizes!) are in stock. Twisted Loopy Canes are ready in their three
sizes. Within the next few days, I will return to the design studio to
spend my sunny days creating the beautiful one of a kind works of cane
art. I can't wait to finish the designs I began before my
accident, and create others that I've been thinking about. It is
so good to be back to work!
I am walking with a
cane (just for now hopefully). Not up to the rigors of event vending
yet, but hope to be back to it in the fall. Very sorry I can't
make DomCon LA next week! I LOVE being
surrounded by cane lovers! I will stay home and make some gorgeous canes
for you, instead of going.
I left the rehab place a few days ago, after staying there for
almost 4 months. I can't quite walk, but I can kind of hobble
around. Moving very slowly. I'll be staying at a friend's
house until I can really walk. I thought after two operations and
3.5 months of physical therapy & bed rest & doing everything they said,
I'd be able to walk right away. I guess not, but I think I'm well
enough to work on canes! Not at my usual rate, but I am working on
I have plans! I
am working on back-ordered Whangee Canes, American Horror Story Canes,
and Sanibel Beach Canes. I hope to have all of those orders
finished in a week. I want to finish those, then restock the
Glossy Canes, Rattan Birch Rods (They are sold separately and also as
part of Sting & Fusion Sets), etc. Then I can get back to the
Crown Jewels that were almost complete when everything went topsy-turvy
as a result of my fall on November 26.
Many thanks and kudos
to Ms Kitten, who did all the cane shipping during my rehab stay.
She was great. I'm so thankful for her assistance!
Many thanks to my
cherished fans and customers-- every one of you. Thank you so much
for your patience, understanding, well wishes and encouragement through
excited! I had surgery last Thursday. I got another 50+
staples. I'm leaving the hospital today and going back to rehab.
I have a doctor's appt on the 6th (this Friday!) and hopefully he'll
allow me to bend my knee and put weight on my right leg. Then I
can walk! It might be another couple weeks, though... will know
After three months
unable to walk, I am SO freaking ready to run! Can't wait can't
wait can't wait!!!! Really looking forward to getting back to my
"real" life-- Starbucks, making canes, being back in my house, etc...
dreamy sigh... soon...! Thank you, my darling customers,
friends and fans, for your patience and understanding through this.
I will be back 100% soon! :-) :-)
is set for tomorrow. Please be patient for a few days if you
contact me or have questions. There will be a 7-10 day unavoidable
shipping slow down beginning tomorrow. I do expect to be back
online in a few days to answer questions, give guidance, etc. I
greatly appreciate your patience and understanding during this time.
I expect to be back making some kick ass disciplinary canes for you in
about two weeks.
My 60 staples were
removed. Doctor is pleased with my healing, but he disappointed me
terribly by telling me that I have another 3 weeks of not bending my
knee or putting weight on my leg. Have appt with vascular surgeon
on Friday for vein mapping & to set a (another!) surgery date. He
wants to make one of my veins into an artery to replace the ruined
artery behind my knee.
I'm almost to the end
of this and should be walking (and working!) in another 3 or 4 weeks.
Can't wait to finish & show you the new things I was working on!
Ms Kitten is still
assisting me with shipping your orders. She's doing a great job!
My knee after 60 surgical
staples were removed.
I had surgery last
Friday. The doctor is pleased and thinks he did a great job. I
spent a few nights in the hospital. That was unexpected. I was supposed
to go to rehab right after surgery. I am back in rehab now, until I have
another operation (blood clot in damaged leg) in five weeks. I expect to
be back on my feet, home, and walking in 7-8 weeks. (Added 3/13/2015:
HA! No way! After nine months of physical therapy, they've
determined this is a permanent disability. The injured leg & knee
are almost always a pain in the ass)
Shipping is being
taken care of under the sweet competent hands of ms kitten. She's
been great through all of this. When you place an order, I email
and give you shipping details, etc. Ms kitten (see below) will actually
ship your order. The system we've come up with is working well and
we look forward to getting some fantastic canes sent to you, wherever in
the world you are!
I had some new styles
of "regular" canes and several crown jewels canes VERY close to being
finished. Can't wait to get back to the design studio and complete
We will not be
shipping for the remainder of January because I am having surgery this
week- extensive reconstructive surgery on my knee. Orders placed
during rest of January will be held and shipped in the order they were
A darling friend,
Ms. Kitten, has been shipping your orders since my mishap in November,
and will resume asap after my surgery (expected date of shipping
restart- Feb. 1). For the first time in 15 years, I need
assistance. I am unable to walk or return home until (probably) March.
Kitten will get back to shipping lovely canes to you on February 1.
I hope this slight delay doesn't cause too many issues for you.
Thank you so much
for your understanding and for your love of my work! Your constant
support and encouragement means so much to me! I will be back on
my feet, making pretty canes again very soon!
Ms. Kitten, your
My knee: 3
of the 4 ligaments torn, tendons damaged, tibial plateau broken, etc.
It's been busy here
with canes flying all over the world and here in the US and Canada!
Thank you, everyone, for your love of my work! I have
another day or two of finishing touches to add to the new Crown Jewels
Canes and hope to be able to show them on the site next week.
Lapis, Tigers Eye, Wartenburg Wheels, sparkling Sterling Silver, the
deep purple of Amethysts... they are beautiful and I can't wait to show
them to you!
10/25/2014 One week remaining on
October's special- free cane with any order over $40 (not including
shipping). The freebies are fun canes that I'm sure are putting smailes
on people's faces all around the world this month. Place your
order asap to get yours!
Working on finishing touches for new
Crown Jewels Canes. Sanibel Beach Canes have been popular lately-
they are covered with sharp sea shell shards.
Can't believe it is October already!
Special for October: Any order $40 or over (not including
shipping) will receive a Halloween-themed cane to help get you in the
festive Halloween holiday spirit.

I am working on
new Crown Jewels Canes. People are loving the versatility of the
new Fusion Sets!
9/26/2014 WOW! It's been
busy here! I put together a new set
of canes- The Fusion Set- consisting of a 7, 9, and 10.5mm
Glossy Cane, along with a matching Rattan Birch Rod. Special
pricing available now on the Royal Pains and Specials pages of this
site. I am working on new Crown Jewels Canes for the fall & winter
and plan to have them ready for you in October. Also some new cane
styles coming soon. Very excited about it all and looking forward
to taking care of your cane needs soon!
you for your participation in my Birthday Giveaway, everyone! The
response was great! It was fun giving special gifts out! I
hope everybody loves them!
8/28/2014: I am
extending the Happy Birthday Free Gift Giveaway! See 8/16 entry
BIRTHDAY FREE GIFT!
I've been working on restocking everything for the fall. Yes, it
is time-- mid-August! Just completed a lovely batch of British
School Canes, and have an accumulation of canes that are perfectly
worthy, but they are not the correct lengths to go with everything else.
Have decided to gift these to my customer/fans and call it a "Birthday
Gift" to YOU! My birthday was last week :-) Free gift with
any purchase from the Wickedly Traditional page, for the rest of the
month! Offer will be honored through the Labor Day weekend, ending
4am EST, Tuesday Sept 2.
I've been receiving some
lovely photos, videos and comments from you! Please keep it up.
I love to see and hear these from you! Here are some examples from
the last few days:

Twisted Loopy Cane
Lovely blog entry
I'd love if you could send
me a link to your blog entry mentioning your beloved canes, or show me
photos, or send your opinion of my work, etc. The best email
address to send to is
WhypDancer@Canes4pain.com works too.
7/25/2014: This summer is
sort of strange. My nastier items usually surge in popularity in
December/January. It is happening now- in July. Whangees,
Singapore Punishment Canes, American Horror Story Canes, etc. You,
my fans, never cease to amaze me lol
Just completed a course in
lost wax casting for jewelers. It was a very intense and
interesting time. I guess I can be officially confused with a
jewelry designer or fabricator. Never really thought about it,
even though I've been taking specialized jewelry making classes for over
a decade. Chasing and repousse, casting, gemstone setting,
silversmithing, etc. It all goes into my cane making. I love
taking these classes, and love working in the design studio. Maybe
someday, I'll actually make a piece of jewelry.
7/5/2014: Went to 4th
of July fireworks last night, for the first time in a million years.
The purpley-blue fireworks make me want to decorate canes with beautiful
blue lapis & moonstone & opal gemstones. Sanibel Beach Canes,
Singapore Punishment Canes and British School Canes seem to be very
popular right now. Oh Whangee Canes, too! How could I forget
those nasty things?
Happily spending the summer at home creating new canes and shipping
promptly around the world. It fascinates me how quickly canes
travel to the other side of the globe... whooosh!
It's been a fun couple of weeks since my last entry below. I've
been working on building Sanibel Beach Canes
and Sting Sets. Both have been very
Emailed a promotional
piece yesterday, but evidently not everybody was able to receive it.
If you would like one and didn't get it, please email me to request one,
Summer arrived here
in SW Florida. It doesn't quite correspond to the calendar version of
summer (starting June 21). Our daily 4:00 thunderstorms have been
occuring early (2:00-ish) and they repeat later in the afternoon.
This has slowed me down on finishing the Sanibel Beach Canes and other
things I'm working on. Hopefully our weather will settle down to
its normal sauna-like steaminess with rain at the same time each day,
I am not doing my
usual vending summer tour this year. The plan is to stay here and
work on some major cane projects. Will post photos when they are
New batches of
British School Canes are ready. They are beautiful. The small
Nursery Canes are perfect for any part of the body because they don't
penetrate deeply into tissue, but they have a lot of sting. There
are also the Junior Canes, Senior, and Disciplinary Canes. All can
be seen on the Wickedly
Traditional page of the site.
The very popular Bamboo Birch Rods are back on the
Wickedly Traditional page.
A new addition to the TNT (Thick N Thuddy)
I'm seeing spots!
This new TNT Cane design is beautiful with its burned-in Leopard Spots
and complimentary glossy black handle. Now up for adoption
on the Wickedly Traditional page, about halfway down.
Also, I have two 2014
Sting Sets in Black, that are 15" instead of 18". These will be on
the Specials page
at a discount.
Last week was
challenging! I returned home from vending at Boardwalk Badness
Weekend, in NJ and had a flat tire the next morning. I tried to
change it myself, but couldn't loosen even the first lug nut and
couldn't find help. Next day, I drove it to the tire place a few
blocks away. I had to get to the post office, pick up my pet Oskie
from the kennel, etc. Ruined the tire, when a simple repair would
have been fine :-(
Next day, I awoke to the sound of water running on the other side of the
house. Hot water pipe in ceiling of my home dungeon broke and flooded half my house
(and work space!). Had to drag all rattan and canes into the yard.
I can't imagine what it looked like to neighbors. I have a
LOT of rattan in all stages of completion. So thankful the weather
was hot and sunny! Everything dried in a few days.
Everything is fine
now (afraid to say that!), and looking forward to finishing last week's
shipping today. Then I'll be in the design studio! YAY! My
favorite part of my "job" at Canes4pain!!
I decided not to
travel out of state for vending this summer, as I usually do. I am
overjoyed at the thought of staying here all summer designing new canes
and working with my fans to get you the most fabulous canes possible!
36" of beautifully
finished cane with curved, tapered handle
ow available on
the Wickedly Traditional
All seven colors of Glossy Handled Canes AND British School Canes are
now ready! I restocked everything and even have a new cane to show
off! YAY! Lovely canes-- all of them. YUMM!
Everything is moving
along nicely. I am in the midst of restocking the 7 different colors of
glossy handled canes.
Pondering the next
steps on a very intricate cane project. Can't wait to get back to "work"
on it! 131 faceted gemstones will form the center of a rose...
can't wait to master the skills needed to complete it. Very
nervous about applying my acetylene torch to heat-treated sapphires.
I have some gloop to apply to them that is supposed to protect them up
to 5000 degrees. Will test one soon. Hopefully it will work!
I returned from vending
in RI with the flu. Spent a week or so in bed-- no choice. I was
dizzy every time I tried to stand up. Delighted to say that
shipping is now current. Thank you to my patient,
understanding customers! Love you guys!
Spent way too much on
a new cell phone while I was ill. Old phone couldn't be updated, wouldn't
read my Square credit card reader, wouldn't take pics anymore, etc.
A week after new phone's arrival, it fell in the toilet and died. It
was definitely not a fan of golden showers LOL So, I have a new,
temporary phone and phone number- 239-971-8469 The new phone is
(supposed to be) waterproof...
Loved seeing everyone
in RI. So happy to be back home in FL and back to work on canes!
video starring my canes! This time in the hands of Ms Servalan
from Australia. This is an excellent video showing some very good
pointers on learning how to cane people.
I will be making a
quick trip to Warwick, RI to vend at NELA's Fetish Fair Fleamarket.
I hope to see many friends and fans there! Will be flying
there on March 7 & returning very late on Sunday, March 9. Orders
received that weekend will be shipped on Monday or Tuesday, March 10-11.
No shipping delays of more than one day! Pray for nice weather &
brisk sales :-)
It is a lovely video
of one of my original fans, Ms. Venus Devine, giving somebody 500 cane
strokes. I made all canes in the video. The first cane in
the video is a Crown Jewels Cane from around 2002. It is topped
with a Quartz pyramid and has lots of sterling silver that catches the
light nicely. Then she uses a thick Whangee Cane. It warms
my heart to see my canes in flight :-) :-) :-)
This year's LOVE Canes are on the Crown
If you'd like a
special gift for Valentines day, it will be here in just a few more
days! LOVE Canes coming soon! I am putting the finishing
touches on them today, then have to apply the final clear coating, give
them their final spa treatment (oil bath), photo them and show them all
to you on the Crown Jewels page of the website! It sounds like a
lot, I know! I expect them to be ready for viewing on the site on
Monday or Tuesday.
There will be some
very ornate LOVE Canes, and some that are less "extreme". I still
have not decided how to finish the very tippy tops of them. Have
been considering a wartenburg pinwheel atop each, but that means a whole
lot of tiny pin pricks in my fingers by the time I finish them.
Don't yet know if I'm up to it LOL
I will announce and show them here very soon!
NEW! 2014 Sting Sets
are now on the Specials & Royal Pains pages, and two new canes were
added to the Crown Jewels page. Sting Sets are great for light
play, or for people that new to this. The Crown Jewels are
spectacular with a lot of silver, and each has seven wartenburg
pinwheels at the top! Somebody is going to have a blast with these
new items! LOVE Canes are coming very soon!
1/8/2014 Saw this today and feel it
expresses perfectly what goes on here. Sincere thanks to all of
for your support, everyone! Love you!
1/7/2014 Happy new year, everyone!
I've been working on the 2014 LOVE Canes! It will be a VERY
limited special edition this year. Coming very soon to the
Canes4pain website. I've been working on them daily, but they are
not ready for photos yet. Putting finishing touches on them and
three other Crown Jewels Canes.
Thank you for your support in 2013,
and looking forward to getting you some awesome canes in 2014!
12/29/2013 Working on Valentines
Day Canes and on finishing a few custom orders and several Crown Jewels
Canes that I started months ago. Hope to have it all finished
soon. Have a fantastic and safe New Year!
So far, it's been an incredibly busy fun holiday season here at
Canes4pain! I've been happily shipping your orders with a special
free cane, and they're gift wrapped. The WOW factor is really up
there! All of the canes are impressively beautiful and perfectly
functional, whether a Bare Cane, colored Glossy Handled Cane, or custom
work of Crown Jewels art!
and photos are rolling in! Your comments probably
make me at least as happy as my canes make you! Thank you so very
much for brightening my days! If you have a photo of your new
canes in their new home or wherever (fetlife?), please send a link so I
can see, too! I love seeing my canes in their happy new lives. My
Fetlife name is WhypDancer, and my best email addy for photos and
comments is WhypDancer@aol.com

receive your order. If they need a final oil treatment, they are
shipped the next day.
I am well stocked and
ready for your order! Shipping times are consistent so far at 2-3
days for delivery in the US. International shipping depends on the
service selected, from around 3 weeks for first class (starting at $15)
to 3-5 days for express.
I have new
Sting Sets ready. Will try to photo them and show them on
the site later today. They include a mini rattan birch rod with
colored tips that match their stinging 7mm Glossy Handled Cane.
They are perfect for the areas of the body that don't normally get
caned. They pack lots of sting, without doing the "damage" of the
larger canes. Small and easy to transport, too. Can't wait
to hear the reviews of them!
Today is Small Business Saturday!
Express will give you a $10 credit off any purchase at Canes4pain for
anybody that registered for this at

All packaging is discrete.
the new canes are getting rave reviews and are being adopted into many
homes. I either misplaced or ran out of British School Nursery Canes.
Will have a new batch ready around Friday of this week. Could
swear I had 15 or so, but can't find them. Did they get adopted
that quickly? These elusive little stingers can be found on the
Wickedly Traditional page.
November 7, 2013:
Just completed new
batches of British School Canes (from the
Wickedly Traditional page) and Glossy
Handled Canes in Black, Purple, Red, Royal Blue, Pink. Will have
Burgundy and Hunter Green finished by week's end. They are all
beautiful! Our cooler, dryer weather makes the process take
longer, but the finish on the handles is exquisite! Smooth with
ridges for a perfect grip and control! Glossies can be found on the
Royal Pains (in the Butt!) page.
Also finished Butt
Beaters and 13mm & 16mm massive canes in black. Doing finishing
touches on all of the Rattan Birch Rods. They will be finished
today-- Black, Black & Blue, Black & Red, Black & Purple all ready
I expect to be
finished today with the descriptions & ordering buttons for the new
canes in the Crown Jewels Fall/Winter Collection (spring/summer for my
Australian fans?). If you looked at that page recently, be sure to
refresh your browser's image to see the updates. Will make small
updates all day until it is finished.
Spent a few hours at
Gem Show yesterday and fell in love with some gorgeous faceted pink
tourmaline hearts & something new- azure titanium coated kyanite.
Some day these stones will find their way to a cane handle. :-)
It was a
fantastic weekend at DomCon Atlanta. Loved seeing everyone and
being immersed in constant praise for my work! I even got to play
at the Ms Whip's 1763 dungeon. Today will be spent updating the Crown
Jewels page of the site with the new Fall/Winter Collection. I
hope you LOVE the new canes!
Crown Jewels Canes debuted at DomCon Atlanta yesterday. They
received MANY compliments and one was already adopted to a new home!
They will appear on the site in a few days. Here is a sneak peek
of three :
These new canes are sharp! Do you
October 17: The
new Crown Jewels Canes are finished! The new batch of Glossy
Handled Canes is finished! All are beautiful. I know you'll
LOVE them! These fine disciplinary canes are ready to make their mark in
your life! Can't wait to show them to you!
The new canes will
debut at DomCon Atlanta this
weekend, and will be on the website next week. If you need a gift
for yourself or a special someone before then, feel free to email and I
can help you make your selection.
Shipping has been super busy lately. Canes are traveling all over
the world. Thank you for all the fantastic feedback! So
happy to be able to add some happiness and fun to your lives! :-)
New British School
Canes & Glossy Handled Canes in 8 colors are ready! In spite of
the incessant rain and flooding in the last week, they are finished!
Still working on completing the new Crown Jewels Canes.
know somebody that wants to give a gift that will leave a lasting
impression, send them here! Pleased to announce that I've been
having a great time in the design studio, working on canes for the
Good news for
Canes4pain now offers First Class shipping, starting at $15, in addition
to Global Priority & Global Express. They say it takes about two weeks
to arrive. I am currently testing to confirm the speed.
It was exciting week
shipping & working in the design studio. I am working on new Crown
Jewels Canes for the fall/winter seasons.
August 10: Tidied up the Crown Jewels Collection
page and updated the Cane Gallery by adding new photos of one-of-a-kind
I'm back in
Florida for the rest of the summer, and am thrilled to be back on my
"regular" schedule of speedy shipping, working on new cane designs, etc.
I am delighted that I
will now have time to fuss over new cane styles, complete custom cane
orders and design new Crown Jewels Canes.
Website sales have
been brisk so far this summer (THANK YOU!!) This seems to be
Traditional Birch Rod
week, with many orders for these nasty items that I can't stand used on
Many thanks for your appreciation of my work!
I am "up north" for
an extended July 4th weekend so I can vend at
an unusually high number of
Whangee and American Horror Story Canes
were shipped last week. I hope everyone enjoys them!
finishing touches on a new batch of Rattan Birch Rods. Black &
Purple, Black & Blue, Black & Red, and all Black fully stocked for the
summer. They can be found in the
Royal Pains Collection HERE.
Black & Purple Rattan Birch Rod
These Rattan Birch
Rods are popular because they are fairly light and can be used to add
lots of sting without leaving marks. They don't penetrate the skin like
full-sized canes, so you can use them pretty much anywhere on the body
without doing the same "damage". I'd stay away from eyes though! They
can be found in the
Royal Pains Collection in a variety of color combinations.
I make them in very small batches because they are so labor intensive.
Maybe these are the wrong implement to tell you about on a week when the
much more intense
Whangee and American Horror Story Canes
are so much in demand :-) The new
Sanibel Beach Canes will be ready soon,
The descriptions, payment buttons and photos of the new Crown Jewels
Collection canes are finished. YAY! See them here:
Crown Jewels Collection
Working on adding the new canes to the Crown Jewels Collection.
Photos of them are now on the Crown Jewels page. Descriptions & ordering
buttons will be coming in the next few days. I hope you like them!
I have a new, lovely
*pink* colored handle available in the Glossy Canes in the Royal Pains
Collection. Photos coming soon. It's taken quite a while to find a pink
that makes me happy. I think the pink lovers will love it. Hate pink?
Cool... there are 7 other colors available for you!
I have several new
canes that I am photographing and putting in the Crown Jewels
Collection. Am working on that now. Just received new batch
of Whangee and thick rattan for TNT (Thick N Thuddy) and American Horror
April 28: New
batch of Glossy Canes is complete. The finish on their colored
handles is beautiful. Smooth and pretty, for a good, sure grip!
See them and purchase some
HERE . They are great canes for a
wide variety of applications. Easy to use, and will leave marks if used
with more finesse. They are great for everybody-- whether new to
canes, or experienced.
Two new Crown Jewels Canes are ready. I hope to have more soon.
April 2, 2013:
The Canes4pain.com ad for the DomCon 10th Anniversary Program Book is

skills are a bit rusty. Here is a preview of the ad:

I've been very
busy shipping orders around the world, working on custom and Crown
Jewels Canes, and taking classes. Yes, I am again a school girl!
I frequently take classes in silver smithing and jewelry making.
In this class I am concentrating on setting faceted gemstones, for a
There is a new
batch of Crown Jewels Canes in the works. I plan to debut those that are
finished at DomCon LA in May. It feels like a massive undertaking,
while working on commissioned pieces, shipping orders, etc.
February 3, 2013: The new LOVE Canes are beautiful. I know their
new owners will LOVE them! The thinner canes are a little bit
under 9mm and have the most exquisite sting and burn. Heavenly!
Finished three Crown Jewels Canes this week. Will work on getting
them photo'd and on the site soon. One is a beautiful amethyst
piece, one has great faceted garnets and a large quartz crystal, and one
features a sterling silver wolf. Can't wait to show them off!
BOUND: Just in time for
Valentines Day 2013- Now available
HERE in the
Crown Jewels Collection!
January 19: The 2013 LOVE Canes are photographed!
These exquisite new canes will be ready to ship beginning Tuesday, 1/22.
The perfect gift to yourself, or for Valentines Day or for somebody's
special day. I am working on adding them to the Crown Jewels
Collection. If you have a super-immediate need meanwhile, feel
free to call me at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss shipping.
Reminder- if you would like a custom cane in late 2013 or early 2014,
this is the time to contact me to discuss it. My annual shopping
trip for gems, silver, etc is rapidly approaching.
January 7, 2013: Happy new year! Things are even
busier here at Canes4pain from just after new year's eve until after
Valentines Day (February 14). Very special limited edition Love
Canes will be ready to show off very soon-- hopefully by the end of this
week. Think brushed silver hearts, etc. I'm sure you will
love the Love Canes!
Just completed a beautiful new batch of British School Canes, and
have been working on Crown Jewels Canes in the design studio.
Today is a massive shipping day. Lots of orders going all around

Crown Jewels Canes
If you would like a custom cane later in 2013 or 2014, please contact me

happen overnight, though. The start of the process happens now.
December 26, 2012:
You kept me on my toes through the holiday season! Thank you! I'm back
in the design studio working on Crown Jewels Canes. I love working
on my beautiful works of art. This is a cane top I've been working on.
I don't know what the rest of the cane will look like yet. Stay tuned!
December 2: Free gift
with every order and free shipping upgrades on international orders!

time for gift-giving. Please place your orders by the 17th for

November 6: Have been very busy restocking
everything. Just putting finishing touches on a few designs such
as Twisted Loopies, Butt Beaters, etc. All glossy handled and
school canes are now in stock and ready to ship. The rest
will be ready tomorrow. The new canes are delicious! Perfectly
conditioned and beautiful! Can't wait to hear everyone's
comments on them! Looking forward to seeing my canes on TV tomorrow

It is on FX at 10pm on Wednesdays. There will be 11 episodes. The season
debut was last Wednesday and I was thrilled to see my cane babies on TV!

months ago and couldn't tell anyone! The suspense was really
getting to me lol

The new shellies will be ready to ship this week! They sold
out on the last trip. This is my way to send a little sunshine to
you. Now available in the Crown Jewels Collection
A great group, Black Rose, is celebrating their 25th anniversary in a
few weeks! I will be vending there.
Canes4pain was accepted to vend at Brimstone on NJ over Thanksgiving weekend.
Looking forward to seeing many of you there!
Was NOT accepted to vend at Beyond Leather in Ft Lauderdale. You
will still have a cane-shopping opportunity in Florida, though! We
will be vending & playing at The Florida Bash
in the end of May/early June.
This was a big week for British School Canes (see them
There must be a lot of people using them at "Back to School" parties!
Enjoy, and thank you!!!
September 16: Completed a masterpiece today that I've been contemplating
for years. It was originally inspired by a friend's exquisite "day
collar". The cane has an unusually long handle covered in pearls.
On that is a sterling silver twig design with faceted blue topaz and
iolite gemstones, and, turquoise from Arizona's Sleeping Beauty Mine.
It is topped by a hand carved/shaped blue lapis rose. I've been
pondering the design on this for years. It is as beautiful as I
imagined. More to come soon-- I've been working in the design
studio a lot!
September 10: Having a great time in the design studio!
Still working on Black Rose Anniversary Canes, and starting on this
year's special edition Winter Holiday Canes and other Crown Jewels
canes-- these should delight their new owners!!!
Everything else on the site is in stock. Will do inventory
tomorrow to make sure everything is very
well stocked for the fall.
Things were slowed down a bit when the a/c in my house (work
space) was not working. Working in my SW Florida home in the middle of
summer without a/c was challenging. It is fixed now, and all is
August 24: Delighted to be working on a special cane or two, to commemorate the 25th
Anniversary of Black Rose! One will have many sparkling gemstones accenting the petals of a rose. If you are able to attend this great event, info is at http://brevent.org Join me there! I am also working on restocking some of the Glossy Canes and Twisted Loopies. They should all be finished this week.

photos and descriptions this weekend.
New Crown Jewels Collection Canes
Working on several new projects. An instructional caning video with
Robert Dr. Bob) Rubel featuring our canes! More about this soon! I
taught a class on Canes & Caning at the Florida Bash last weekend.
It was a lot of fun and the feedback has been excellent!
The new batch of Sanibel Beach Canes is impressive! They
seem extra sharp and very pretty. The new batches of British
School Canes, Whangee Canes and Bamboo Birch Rods are ready and can be
ordered on the Wickedly Traditional page.
April 28: Have been enjoying sunny days in the
design studio, working on new Crown Jewels Canes. They should be ready
to show off soon. Some new cane designs are coming, too!
I recently found this fantastic shot of the marks
left by a
Whangee Cane. Photo courtesy of Fetlife user cherished_slave.
March 21: Recently enjoyed vending at some
fantastic events. Many thanks to vending staff, volunteers, and
organizers! The canes and I will be doing a quick trip to Beat Me

February 18: The time leading up to
Valentines Day was very busy, as usual! Many people gave canes as
gifts this year!
Canes4pain.com was a vendor at some fantastic events recently- Southwest
Leather Conference, Fetish Fair Fleamarket in Providence, R.I., Dark
Odyssey Winter Fire in D.C., social night at Desert Dominion in Tucson,
AZ, etc. It was a lot of fun and I love showing off the canes in person
and meeting & making new friends and fans!
The new batch of British School Canes will be ready to ship this week.
They are strong and beautiful. I'm sure their adoptive parents will love
them and put them to good use!
January 29 All of the new canes, including
this year's love canes,
are on the site! The Glossy Canes found on the Royal Pains page
have been restocked and are perfect! I added some new photos to
the Wickedly Traditional page.
January 24, 2012 This year's (very)
limited edition Love Canes are ready! They were introduced last weekend
at Southwest Leather Conference (SWLC) in Phoenix and received rave
reviews! Please see them and other works of modern cane art in the
Crown Jewels Collection.
January 9, 2012 I am preparing to
acquire the cane decorating items needed for the coming year. If you
would like a custom design this year, this is
absolutely the best time to discuss it with me, even if you have
only a vague idea of what you'd like. Please
EMAIL or phone me asap to discuss your vision.
Currently obsessing over this year's
Love Canes, which should be shown and
released very soon. There is nothing that compares to spending
time at the workbench with silver gleaming and gems sparkling in the
sun. Thank you for your appreciation of my efforts!
December 31: Happy New Year, everyone!!!!
Today, December 11, is Canes4pain's 11th
It has been an amazing 11 years of spreading joy
and red stripes throughout the world! Thank you to our fans! I look
forward to giving my personal attention to your order. Please see
our specials below.
2011 Limited Edition Winter Holiday Cane Sets
Now available in the Crown Jewels Collection
November 27: I hope you had a great
Thanksgiving! Yesterday was American Express credit card company's
"Small Business Saturday". It was fascinating to watch all the
orders come in that were paid for with amex cards during their one-day
Certificates are available on the
November 13: The Limited Edition 2011
Winter Holiday Cane Sets are here!!! They have been photographed
and will be available today. Every step in the creation of these
exquisite canes took longer than expected. I'm sure you'll agree that it
was all well worth it when you see them!
November 7: After months of fussing over
this year's Limited Edition Winter Holiday Canes, I am VERY proud to
announce these beautiful canes will be ready to be photographed today.
There are ten sets with each set containing two canes. They have a
huge range of sensations from sting to burn, with the ability to gently
warm the skin, sting, or lay down visible stripes for the holidays. Each
set has a cane that is approximately 8mm, and one that is just under
11mm. Some are trimmed with deep purple amethysts, some with rich
burgundy garnets, all set off against spectacular silver. I can't wait
to show them off and hear your opinions!!! Some previous years'
designs cane be seen HERE. They should
be showing in the Crown Jewels Collection tomorrow.
Made a quick trip to Orlando yesterday for a gem &
jewelry show. I wanted some yellow/orange faceted gemstones to finish a
masterpiece I've been working on for years. I now have a delicious
selection of sapphires, spessartite garnets, and citrines that should be
perfect. The sapphires range from pale yellow, to a pale orange. The
garnets are a spectacular warm orange/yellow color, and the citrines are
a nice, sunny yellow. Can't wait to work with them!
But first.. the Limited Edition Winter
Holiday Canes! I am hoping they will be ready to photograph in a
few days. I'm sure these will please the fans of the Crown Jewels
I completed three custom pieces in the last week or
two. All are very beautiful and will appear in the gallery soon.
The new batch of Bamboo Birch Rods is
here! They can be seen in more detail in the
Friends (FrankAlbergo) having fun with two Bamboo Birch Rods!
October 1, 2011: I began sprinkling new
photos throughout the website. I have many more to add. They are
courtesy of Fetlife's PhotoDave, of Assume the Position Studios. I'm
loving his photos and he and his models are loving Canes4pain.com canes,
so it is working very well! More to come soon!
This evening (9/28/2011), I discovered that only *some* of
the updates I posted here are actually being shown here. I found out
that since the June 28th entry, ALL were saved on my hard drive and NOT
on the website! They are now all here! (see below)
I've been having a great time in the design studio! I so
love my time creating in there! I am working on custom orders and
hope to see those pieces finished very soon. They include two sterling
silver dragons, a huge rose, a hinge on a very special cane, a goddess
taming a slithering beast, another goddess... a partridge in a pear
I think I figured out the design for this
year's Limited Edition Winter Holiday Canes. I think they'll be
spectacular! Don't even have the first one completed yet, but I
think I finally figured it out! Stay tuned for the announcement when
they are ready to show off! If you would like your Winter Holiday
Canes customized with a name, initials, or something very personal like
that, please write me NOW about it. I plan to have them ready to show
off *soon* and it is much easier (less labor inten$ive) to
do it before the final clear coating is added.
Looked through my "tub" of faceted
gemstones today. Dreaming of doing some stone setting... maybe in
the spring I'll have time. Meanwhile, Can't wait to show all the
new stuff I've been working on!!
I have some excellent photos of people
with "my" canes to add to the website... coming soon. And more reviews
for the reviews page. And soon the Crown Jewels Collection will be
sparkling with new offerings.
Spending this week restocking Glossy Handled Canes in
Black, Burgundy, and Green. Ran out of all three colors because of
recent large orders. I strive to keep ALL designs and options offered in
stock and ready to ship, but every now and then I run out of something.
They will be ready in a few days. Still working on the Limited Edition
Winter Holiday Canes for this year and hope to have them ready to show
off by month's end. Finishing some custom Crown Jewels commissioned
pieces. Can't wait to see all of them completed!
It was a wonderful summer. I met a lot of you at events, and even took a
little "time off" to take some classes and visit family. I have a lot of
new things that will be appearing on the site soon. Longer Loopy Canes
that have nice, flexible handles, Twisted Loopies (with twisted
handles), a new quality of British School Canes, Willow "Birch" Rods in
two sizes, Birch Birch Rods in two sizes, and as always I am open to
custom orders. There will be new cane sets coming soon too.
June 28, 2011: The new Crown Jewels are being adopted quickly!!!
There are several more Crown Jewels Collection
pieces that are
spectacular, but not quite finished yet. It is almost time to
begin working on this year's limited edition winter holiday canes. They
usually take 2-3 months to complete. See the
current offerings HERE!
June 22, 2011:
My dear customers, something dawned on me today. I should have told
you... Back in December, I fell and dislocated
BOTH of my knees at the same time. I was unable to walk, or sit
at my workbench in the design studio, or do much of anything. That is
why there were no limited edition Winter Holiday or Valentines Day canes
last season. All I could do was lay in bed and whine for about ten
weeks. Then I began walking like a 90 year old for several more weeks.
Eventually, both knees healed completely. I'm ok now.
I didn't want to tell anyone at the time. Looking back on it all, I
should have admitted it. I'm sure you, my dear fans, were really
disappointed there were no limited edition sets, and maybe even thought
I gave up on making my beautiful canes. No way in hell! I just
wasn't able to do anything other than lay in bed. I am back now,
healed, and ready to work ! My knees are fine, the sun is shining,
and I have a lot of rattan here to work with...
June 19, 2011: All of the new Crown Jewels Collection canes are
now on the Crown Jewels page, complete with descriptions and payment
buttons. Please take a look here:
Crown Jewels Collection
Enjoy your tour of the new collection! They were a lot of fun to design
June 11, 2011: Birch is here for Birch Rods. It was
harvested about three weeks ago, so the leaf buds won't open in water,
but it will absorb water and soften up nicely. They have a ton of sting,
but don't damage the skin very much.
Working on photographing the new Crown Jewels. This has been a
very slow process due to new computer with non-compatible operating
system. I think it is all straightened out now, so photos will be on the
Crown Jewels soon.
Was a vendor at DomCon LA & The Florida Bash in the last few
weeks. Both were great trips!! Next vending trip will be in
mid-July for The Floating World
in NJ. Come see me if you are in the area!!
May 17, 2011: Will the fans that
requested a Tigers Eye and a Skull/Pirate Cane please contact me via
email. The new Crown Jewels Canes are finished! I have
several to put on the site. Hoping preliminary pics will be added
May 12, 2011: New Crown
Jewels Canes are almost finished! I have 15 in the works, and they are
beautiful! Restocking of the Royal Pains Collection by the end of this
weekend. Will be vending at DomCon LA from May 18-21, then rushing home
to ship orders. I don't anticipate a shipping slow-down of more than a
day or two due to that travel.
January 27, 2011: Well, here something
completely new! ALL of the Crown Jewels Canes have been sold,
other than the Sanibel Beach Canes. In over ten years of
cane-making, this is the first time this happened. If you would like to be notified of the
new designs, please click here to
January 16, 2011:
Happy new year, darling fans!!! I look forward
to delivering the canes of your dreams to you this year.
Crown Jewels Collection Canes are now
being offered. The payment buttons are finished, and most of the
I had a "little" mishap last week. I slipped in the shower and spent
many hours in the hospital to discover that I dislocated both knees. It
is pretty painful, but I got a nice endorphin buzz the first day. Didn't
even have to bother anybody to cane me bloody to do it! lol I am
not supposed to be on my feet, so am trying to work in bed with ice on
my propped up knees. It is sort of like a non-consensual restraint
situation. After a few days of staying off my feet, I am itching
to get back to work sanding and fussing over the canes.
November 26: I will return home from this unexpected trip on Sunday,
November 28, and will resume shipping on Monday! Can't wait to get the
canes flying around the world !
November 7: NEW CANES!! Working on
adding 5 or 6 new canes to the
Crown Jewels Collection today.
October 29: I'm off to the Orlando Gem Show today to find the finishing
touches for the limited edition 2010 Winter Canes. They need
just a little something, and will be finished soon!
There are six new Crown Jewels Canes ready for the collection. Will try
to get them on the site this weekend.
Displayed the canes at DomCon Atlanta earlier this month. It was a great
weekend of teaching and meeting friends and fans! Thank you to all who
September 12: There are some beautiful new canes ready for the Crown
Jewels Collection! One in Amethyst and Sterling, and one in Moonstone
and Sterling. I hope to have the photos ready for the website soon!
I recently returned from vending at The Floating World in NJ, and
visiting family in PA. I was able to go into New York City to shop in
some jewelers' supply stores and look at some incredible works of art in
Tiffany and various antique stores. I now have some new tools and
metals to make new designs dance on the ends of the canes!
I have been pondering the designs for this year's Winter Holiday special
edition canes and hope to have them ready in a month or so. I think a
lot of gleaming silver will brighten everyone's holiday this year! More
July 31: Returned from vending at Thunder in
the Mountains last week and came down with a cold the next day. That
slowed down my work on new canes and shipping. Everything is ok now. I'm
feeling better and am back to work. Three Crown Jewels canes were
adopted to new homes at Thunder, so I have very few to offer now. I am
again working on new designs. Everything else on the website is well
May 16: DomConLA was a great event! I had a lot of compliments on
my work. That inspires me to rush home and make more canes :) Met
some great people, and saw a lot of fans. Canes4pain canes will be
staring in some new movies very soon! I can' t wait to see them!
May 5: Canes4pain is well stocked now. I am
working on Crown Jewels Canes and shipping this week. I am shipping all
around the world today :-) Started a cane design with a large
sterling silver snake guarding a mass of quartz crystals, all to be set
atop stingray skin. The cane was inspired by a pretty sea shell I found
on the beach. When I picked it up, I found that it had a crab guarding
it. He would not let me have the shell.
I also began a cane with a sterling dragon, and a long quartz crystal on
top, held up by a beautifully detailed sterling piece.
April 18: It
has been an interesting few weeks! Zillions of canes got shipped
all over the world, I restocked from all those orders, sold out again,
and just finished restocking with another zillion straight canes, loopy
canes, twisted loopy canes, rattan butt beaters, etc. So, Canes4pain is
now fully stocked! Whew! I expect these to last a couple months.
Because of this restocking and full shipping days, my progress on the
new Crown Jewels was delayed. I hope to get back to work on them asap. I
have so many great new designs in mind, and several have been started...
Guess what I did to the new batch of Senior School Canes?? I cut
all of them an inch short! They are only 32 inches long, instead 33",
and I don't have time to make more until late next week. I will be
giving a discount on them until this small batch is sold. (probably two
weeks) If you want one, and don't mind them being an inch shorter,
order now. They are exquisitely flexible and quite worthy. I'm
lucky I don't work for somebody else! I would probably be fired
for this lol Its good to be the boss sometimes! (The shorties are
The willow branches for the Governess Birch Rods are growing! I put them
in water because they are fresh, and the buds opened and leaves are
opening and growing. This is probably not a big deal to my fans in the
north, but we don't have willow here. These have an exquisite
degree of sting and burn.. yumm!!!
March 24: ***NEW***
Willow Birch Rods!
Two versions- The Standard Willow Rod, which is 24 to 30" long, and the
Governess Rod, which is a full four feet long! Both made of Fresh Willow Branches, nicely flexible and full of
whoosh. They are straight and easy to use accurately. These have an exquisite degree of sting and burn. After
testing them today, I am in love! Now available in the
Wickedly Traditional Collection.
It is almost spring! I can't wait to finish the new crown jewels canes
and show them off! It is good to be home. I can enjoy time in the design
studio now! There are some very challenging and fun custom cane designs
to work on, and the spring collection, and shipping, etc. I can't
wait to hear the comments on the new canes when they are ready to be
presented to my fans!! Just completed a fresh batch of
Sting Sets in hot pink and black,
Butt Beaters, and
February 17: I
am home! Vending at the Fetish Fair Fleamarket in Providence, RI last
very exciting! Cane fans swarmed my vending booth all weekend
long. I had a great time helping them select canes, and giving advice on
care and use when requested. I
have the new Crown Jewels Spring Collection ready to display in 8 weeks.
I will be working on several custom canes during this time, too.
February 10, 2010: During my Tucson trip I was able to take six classes on metal smithing
and jewelry making. I will use the techniques in upcoming cane designs.
I met and spoke at great length to the inventor of Argentium Silver- a
great "new" kind of silver that is more easy to solder, and doesn't
tarnish! I think it will be great to work with. Instead of being 7.5%
copper, it has Germanium in it. Germanium doesn't tarnish as easily.
I spoke to my favorite designer of hammers, Bill Fretz, and a well known
instructor of chasing and repousse, Valentin Yotkov. I hope to
take classes from him in the future. I also met several jewelry
designers who produce some very impressive work. It was great speaking
I gathered some new sterling pieces, and a lot of inspiration on
my trip. I hope to get right back to work on the Crown Jewels Spring
Collection when I return home! I look forward to showing off the
results of my travels!
I am in Tucson, browsing the huge gem & jewelry
shows, attending classes, and gathering inspiration. I can't wait to
show you what I've learned and purchased! I will be vending in
Providence, RI next week at the Fetish Fair Fleamarket. I look forward
to showing off the canes there, and meeting lots of fans!! I
have the full line of canes with me and am shipping daily while on this
It was love at first sight when I recently saw stingray skin for
the first time. I bought some right away to use on a very special
set of cane handles. Today, as I wandered through the
gem show, surrounded by the most opulent gems and jewelry in the world ,
I noticed many jewelry designers are now using this beautiful skin. I
love the black, pebbled texture, and can't wait to show how it looks on
a cane handle!!
January 26: We are unveiling quite a
few new items! They are all on the website now, and all ordering buttons
should be working. I rebuilt a lot of the buttons this morning. The Love Canes are
ready, in time for Valentines Day. They can be seen in the
Crown Jewels Collection. There are two
designs- one with faceted amethyst gemstones, and one
with polished garnet gemstones. (The Garnet Love Canes are sold out, as
of 1/26. Amethyst Love Canes in 9mm & 10mm only are still available)
There will also be a Valentines Day design with a black handle, accented
with a Swarovski crystal heart. Selling price will be well under $100. They
will be on the website in a few days.
are now available on the
Wickedly Traditional page. They are very wicked. These canes are
long, thick, and very wicked.
Rattan Butt Beaters- compact and easy to
carry and use, with tons of sting. Now showing on the
Royal Pains page.
Sting Sets: also compact and easy to carry,
perfect for the more delicate areas of the body!Available in hot pink
and black on the Royal Pains page.
And I added a new photo of the Glossy Canes on the
Royal Pains page. It
January 18, 2010:
2010 Limited Edition~
I have been working on this year's Love Canes,
which will be available in the Crown Jewels Collection in the next few
days. They will make perfect Valentines Day gifts.
There will be two versions. One stunning design with a lot of sterling
silver and black druzy hearts, available in three thicknesses. The
other design will feature Swarovski Crystal Hearts. Between the two
designs, there will be canes for every taste and budget. There
will be ten canes available of each design.
January 2, 2010: Happy New
love the new shopping cart! It is very easy to use and has performed
perfectly so far!
December 30, 2009:
Hurray! Canes4pain has
a new shopping cart, and it is working! It took me about 35 hours in two
days, and it is finished!! :-) I tweaked a lot of things on
the site, and moved the Multi Lash Rattan Birch Rods over to the Royal
Pains page. The new shopping cart is very nice and easy to use.
December 29, 2009:
shopping cart is under construction. I had to replace our shopping cart
with a new one when our previous version died. I am unable to get
support to repair it, so I am replacing all payment buttons on the
site using a new shopping cart. This unexpected project is proving to be
the wrong kind of pain in the ass. I was really looking forward to
working on the spring collection for the Crown Jewels Collection, and
some custom pieces. I expect the new cart to be completely functional
tomorrow (Wednesday, 12/30/09).
So far, the Wickedly Traditional, the
Royal Pains, and Crown Jewels pages' shopping cart payment buttons are
finished and working. If you want to order canes on other pages, please
me or call me at email@example.com Be sure to leave a message with your callback number & best time to call if I don't answer., and I will enter your info into the
system manually. Thank you for your patience and understanding. It will
be very nice when complete, and I am working on it! Making beautiful new
canes is so much more enjoyable than rebuilding something that shouldn't
need to be rebuilt!
***December 24, 2009***
The website's shopping cart has a "headache". Please call me at
firstname.lastname@example.org Be sure to leave a message with your callback number & best time to call if I don't answer. I love speaking to my
fans and look forward to your call, and to getting some great canes
delivered to you!
December 2, 2009:

From now until the new year, to ensure your fabulous new canes get to
you quickly, shipping on all international orders will be upgraded to
Express Mail, at no additional charge. You pay for Priority shipping
($23 for the first item, $2 for each additional), and I will upgrade it
so it arrives in 4-6 days to any country in the world.

Priority Mail shipping so your canes arrive in 1-3 days, to $3 for the
first item shipped, and an additional $1 for each additional. All orders
include package tracking! All items are gift wrapped, and ready to
create the great red holiday stripes we're famous for!
November 26, 2009: Happy Thanksgiving to

The Winter Holiday
Canes have been very well received. There are only two (one set)
still available. Canes are flying all around the world right now,
with our super-fast shipping.
October 2, 2009: Introducing...
the numbered limited edition Winter Holiday 2009 series, Starlight, and
Pele's Mace, which are all showing in the Crown Jewels Collection now!
All very beautiful works of functional cane art.
September 29, 2009:
New canes!! The Winter
Holiday 2009 canes are almost ready! The should appear on the website by
the end of the week! I'm really looking forward to showing them off.
I've been contemplating this design for seven months!
September 24, 2009:
working on new Crown Jewels Canes for the fall and winter gift-giving
season. Two are finished. One is designed with faceted peridot gemstones
and a lot of silver. The other is a double cane- a 9mm and a 10mm cane,
all in one. The two rattan pieces were selected so they have the same
flexibility and will travel at the same speed, for a nice, double strike
:) That cane has a platinum druzy stone with a woman in the moon. Both
can be seen in the Crown Jewels Collection soon. The limited
edition Winter Holiday Canes are in the works and will be ready very
soon, as well as several other designs.
August 25, 2009:
was a very busy summer. I loved being surrounded by my adoring fans at
the events where I was a vendor. All the attention made me very
eager to work on new Crown Jewels canes for the fall/winter season. I am
working on some spectacular things! I can't wait to show you!
Response has been positive to the new designs I spoke about below. I am
looking forward to showing the new styles on the website soon.
July 12, 2009:
Things have been
very busy here! I am completing new Glossy Canes, Whangee Canes,
and Rattan Birch Rods. We have some new colors that will be introduced
next weekend at Thunder in the Mountains. I added
Metallic Copper colored
Glossy Handled Canes (found on the Royal Pains page) , and a "Sting Set"
of a small rattan birch rod and loopy cane. The Sting Set is now
available in Black and Hot Pink.
I now have Rawhide Canes, Headmaster School Canes, and offer Rattan
Canes with the bark still on.
April 2, 2009:
canes for the Crown Jewels Collection are ready! I am putting them on
the website now.
I just returned from delivering
a cane, and vending in Washington, DC at The Crucible's LF&P. The
weekend was a blast! Thank you to everyone I came in contact with, for
your support, encouragement, and inspiration!
Here is a little peek at the cane I delivered in DC. Posting
the photo here seems appropriate for spring, since the Lillies bloom in
early spring. Many times people ask how long it takes to make a
cane. This one took two years! This Lily of the Valley Cane was once a
flat sheet of sterling silver, and sterling wire. Each floret has
a tiny pearl in it, and the whole piece tinkles and jingles when the
sterling florets and pearls strike each other. You should see and
hear it in person!
I just completed
a new batch of the Glossy Canes in the Royal Pains Collection. We are
now fully stocked in three or more thicknesses in each of five colors :)
I have a great supply of fragrant birch on hand for this season's
Traditional Birch Rods, and am finishing up some beautiful Crown Jewels

I will be showing my work at the upcoming
LF & P at the
Crucible in Washington, D.C. on March 14. It will be my first time
I am now working on restocking designs that sold out during the
holidays, and am beginning new Crown Jewels pieces. I have lots of new
things to work on! New Dragons, Scary Monster Faces, Goddesses, Fairies,
Flowers, Butterflies, gemstones, stones, silver, etc... there will be
some spectacular new canes soon. I am working on some commissioned
pieces now. This is the time to put in your request, if you'd like one.
My gemstone setting classes in Tucson were very informative, and I am
still taking classes here in Florida, where I live. I call it all
"advanced canemaking class". Thank you to all my instructors over the
years for your patience, expertise, assistance and willingness to teach
me even though my line of work is a bit "off-beat".
The beautiful new Love Canes are almost gone. There are only two left.
I wish I had one for myself.. sulking. They are in the Crown
Jewels Collection. I can't believe our humidity is only 28% today. If
your canes are in a dry climate with humidity like that, please give
them some moisture. Proper hydration will keep them making pretty
stripes for a long time to come. I think I'll start designating
January as "Hydrate your cane month".

The new Love Canes are ready, and can be seen in the
Crown Jewels Collection.

They'd make a perfect Valentines Day gift
for that special someone, or yourself.
Reminder- if you are considering
commissioning a custom cane in 2009, please contact me asap so we can
discuss the design.
January 4, 2009:
Happy new year!
The 2009 "Love Canes" are almost ready! The
limited edition handle design is totally unlike anything else I've made
to date. You will love them. I expect to be showing them on the Crown
Jewels page tonight or tomorrow night.
I wish you the greatest holiday season and
new year ever!! Many thanks to all of you for your encouragement and
support! Canes4pain� canes have been flying all over the country
and world. I feel like Santa's elf!
Canes4pain.com friend, Born, with Santa & Whangee Cane
If you would like a custom cane made in
2009, this is the time to put in your request. I expect to be free
to begin custom designs around March or April.
I started designing the 2009 "love canes," the special limited edition
canes with a Valentines Day theme. Faceted pinky/red Topaz hearts set in
sterling on an ornate sterling background. I think they'll be beautiful.
They should be available in the Crown Jewels Collection in about three
I plan to change the Canes Gallery somewhat.
I will be making three separate galleries. One of previously
purchased Crown Jewels designs, one of custom designed commissioned
pieces ( there are very few shown in the present Gallery- there are many
more that are not there), and another with displays of canes, portraits
of people with them, and the marks they've left. If you have any
photos you would like me to include, please send them! Comments are
always welcome for the Reviews page, too!
I found this fantastic review of my work on
Ms Veronica Vinyl's website. She is a fantastic artist. I hope to have
some of her work someday! Here is a link to her review... the
comments under it are great too :)

The new Sanibel Beach Canes will be ready to
ship on Monday. I've been experimenting with them and was surprised at
how easy they are to clean! They've stirred up a LOT of controversy
where I've shown them. You can now place your order in the
Crown Jewels Collection. Here are sneak
peek photos of them:
I had the honor of feeling one of this
year's Limited Edition Jingle Bells Canes while at Black Rose. It was
great! These highly accurate canes impart an exquisite combination of
sting and burn. They can be found in the
Crown Jewels Collection. Here is a photo of them:
I am working on a new cane series that has a
There are three versions, in wicked, more
wicked, and extremely wicked models. The wicked version has sand
collected from nearby Sanibel Island. The more wicked version has
a rougher grade of sand with some seashell matter in it. The extremely
wicked version is mainly sharp shards of broken shells. All securely
attached to a wicked 9mm (5/16") thick dense, accurate rattan cane-- the
kind that made Canes4pain
famous. These canes will bring "as wicked as they are beautiful" to a
new level. Here is a sneak peak of the prototypes that are now in
testing. If you would like to reserve one of the first available, please
email me at
WhypDancer@canes4pain.com. They will be ready very soon.
(All sand and
shells for these were collected on Sanibel Island, which is off the
coast of Fort Myers, Florida (where I live). Sanibel is known as one of
the top five beaches in the world for gathering seashells)
October 5: This
year's limited edition canes to celebrate the winter holidays are
finished. There are two designs, both with long, pure silver handles-
all designed on superbly balanced, dense 9-10mm canes. These are sure to
add a lot of warmth to the holidays! They are accented with Garnet
gemstones that are they rich burgundy color of dried blood, and there
are sterling silver accents on the pure silver handle, etc etc.. They
can now be seen in the Crown Jewels Collection.
am currently finishing up the Limited Edition Winter Holiday Canes for
2008. They are very elegant., and should be finished, photographed, and
ready to ship around the end of this week. It looks like there will be 3
of one design and 4 of another. They have pure silver handles,
garnet gemstone accents.. I think they will be adopted to new homes
quickly. I am also working on other new Crown Jewels canes. I love doing
this very creative work!
I've been getting the most
wonderful comments and compliments on my work :) It's kind of like
getting a report card with straight A's. I found a beautiful photo
of a fan holding a Whangee Cane too. I was just zipping around the
internet and there it was. I love coming across photos of my cane babies
with their happy new families... especially early on Monday mornings. I
will update the reviews page soon with new comments and photos.
The counter on the home page of Canes4pain�
turned over to 350,000 last week! It feels like something that should be
celebrated! Thank you, everyone, for your support and compliments.
I am working on a special limited edition cane design for the winter
holiday season in the Crown Jewels Collection. I am also working on more
Crown Jewels canes for the gift giving (christmas/valentines day)
I've been getting some great feedback from
happy cane users, and will post some new comments on the reviews page
Wow! Its been busy here!
was featured in a live spotlight interview by radio station
BMRX . That was a lot of fun! They are
going to send me a copy of the interview so I can post it here on the
site for everyone to hear. Many "cane babies" were adopted to new homes.
I had to scurry around and get my house ready for the potential
hurricane/tropical storm Fay. Luckily it was "just" a tropical storm
when it blew through town. I lost a lot of palm fronds and some fruit
from the trees, but all is ok. I think I've heard enough wind and
thunder for this year. Looking forward to a nice cool dry autumn,
winter, and spring. I plan to be back in cane production this
week. I will be starting some new canes for the fall and winter season's
Crown Jewels Collection- including this year's special Limited Edition
canes, and I am restocking Rattan Birch Rods (seen on the Multi-Canes
page), and Black Glossy Canes (in the Royal Pains Collection). Thank you
to everyone for your well wishes during the storm and my recent
birthday, and of course, thank you for your orders and emails full of
glowing reports of your canes dancing over people's skin. It is an honor
and a pleasure to supply you with these fine implements :)
The canes and I will be traveling to
Fetish Con in Tampa next weekend.
It has been years since the canes have been offered at a large event in
Florida. It should be a lot of fun showing them off and seeing friends
and fans. Come say hi if you go! This week will be spent shipping and
working on Rattan Birch Rods- wonderful little multiple lash rattan
floggers. They have lots of sting. That should keep me busy. They are
very labor intensive.
I will be hosting our annual Back to School
Play Party on September 5 in Ft Myers, Fl. If you would like info or an
invitation, please email me at
. My birthday party Friday night was lots of fun. I had about 42 billion
spanks, smacks, cane strokes, etc.
Wow, Thunder in the Mountains was great last
weekend. It was so nice seeing everyone. Last week I caught up on
making School Canes in preparation for all the "Back to School" themed
parties coming up in the fall.
If you would like a very special cane custom
made for you for Christmas 2008 or Valentines Day 2009 delivery,
now is the time to discuss it with me. I am now accepting custom
orders, but only for a short time. We are well stocked and have
all canes ready for immediate shipping in the Royal Pains, Wickedly
Traditional, and Multi-Canes Collections.
I am back from visiting family in PA and am
looking forward to my cane work! I have so much to do! A ton of
shipping, website updates, new canes, etc. The canes in the Royal Pains,
Wickedly Traditional, and Multi-Canes collections are all fully stocked
and ready to ship. So are the beautiful pieces in the Crown Jewels
Collection, even though I haven't yet completed the descriptions for
those. If you have any questions on them, please email me at
or call me at email@example.com Be sure to leave a message with your callback number & best time to call if I don't answer.(7am to 7pm eastern time, please!)
I'm a very proud canemaker
:-) One of my fans from the Netherlands sent me this yesterday.
pet and his Mistress, Lady Charlotte, have a fine collection of my work
that they've been gathering over the years. Below is the photo and
email he sent me.

It was a competition with the biggest names in
the Domina world and we won with our secret weapon the

I have a fresh batch of Birch for our
Birch Rods! Yumm! Birch Rods can be found in the Wickedly
Traditional Collection. In the next several days, I will be
completing the descriptions for the new Crown Jewels Collection.
Looks like a party! These are a few of the new canes.
The photos of the new Crown Jewels
Collection are up. Reviews have been great so far. I am working on the
descriptions and order buttons. If there is one you want, either email
me or use the order button. I will complete this as quickly as possible.
Photos of the new canes are ready to
put on the website. I will be working on it today. I think they really
look great and am sure the new additions will be very popular :) Please
take a look. They are in the Crown Jewels Collection.
April 29: NEW CANES!! The new canes for the Crown
Jewels Collection are finished! I am working on photos and expect them
to be on the Crown Jewels page tomorrow. Prices of the collection start
around $100. They are truly fit for a God or Goddess!
April 2: The new
canes in the Crown Jewels Collection are almost finished! They should be
on the site in another week or two. I also have a lot of new jewelry for
that collection. Canes I am working on: two canes decorated with
spectacularly ornate hand made sterling silver and gemstone snakes; a
very elegant cane with hand carved mother of pearl and conch flowers
(pink and white) with matching stone set in sterling silver and fairy
holding a sterling whip; some great new pieces for the limited edition
"Scary Monster Faces with Wartenburg Wheels" series, a Butterfly or two,
a double cane with a sterling Tiger, maybe a Wolf, canes with various
stones and gemstones set in Sterling Silver, etc etc etc. It is
going to be a fantastic selection of canes!! I am excited and can't wait
to hear your comments!
Yay! March is here! February was crazy. I am working on
new canes for the Crown Jewels Collection. I have lots of new silver,
lots of new gemstones, and lots of new ideas and inspiration. I think we
will like the results. I moved the Crown Jewels design area from my
living room floor to a room in my house with a nice new jeweler's
workbench. I'm sure the comfortable and nicely organized work space will
February 8: I was
not able to complete our Valentines Day canes in time for the holiday.
The 2008 Love Canes will be released in late spring.
Happy New Year! It was a very busy holiday season and now
the Valentines Day rush has begun. I am working on a very special
design for Valentines Day. More about it soon.
November 30: Hello from Black Rose!! Below is a photo of
a cane that I was commissioned to make. It has Sterling silver gleaming
against fragrant black goat leather... it is to commemorate Black Rose's
20th anniversary, which is being celebrated this weekend. I am very
pleased with the results!
November 6: Below
is a photo of the new Twisted Loopy Canes. Individually, they will be
sold with black handles. In the set below, they will be available in
five different colors. They are proving to be a lot of fun. The can
be found, along with more information, on the
Royal Pains page of the Canes4pain�
I also finished the descriptions of the new
Crown Jewels Collection Canes.
Above is a
photo of the new Canes4pain in the Butt Collection. This eight cane set
has four brand new styles of canes -- 7mm & 10.5mm Twisted Loopy
Canes, and 13mm & 16mm straight canes-- that join Canes4pain.com popular
canes- the matching 7mm, 9mm, 10.5mm and 20 Lash Rattan Birch Rod. The
set is available in five great colors- Black, Red, Burgundy, our
new Royal Blue, and Purple. It is available on the
Royal Pains page.
I am working on getting the new canes photographed and
put on the website. I have seven new canes for the Crown Jewels
Collection, as well as the new sets of canes, new Loopy Canes, Twisted
Loopy Canes, etc. I expect it all to be available on the site later
today or tomorrow. I hope you like them!
I just returned from DomCon Atlanta, and hosted my
annual Happy Slappy Halloween Play Party. Both were lots of fun :-) Next
week, I and the canes will be at Kinky Kollege, a great event in
Chicago. Then I will have a few weeks to work at home, and then off to
Black Rose. BR registration is still open at
www.brevent.org . DomCon LA is the
only event I have scheduled for 2008 so far. I will schedule a few
other trips, but do plan to slow down on the travel next year. I want to
spend more time at home making new canes.
It was a wonderful summer. I met a lot of you at events,
and even took a little "time off" to take some classes and visit family.
I have a lot of new things that will be appearing on the site soon.
Longer Loopy Canes that have nice, flexible handles, Twisted Loopies
(with twisted handles), a new quality of British School Canes, Willow
"Birch" Rods in two sizes, Birch Birch Rods in two sizes, and as always
I am open to custom orders. There will be new cane sets coming soon too.
Finally!! I can update the website! I reformatted my hard
drive and had an awful time getting my FrontPage program working with
this site again.
I was a vendor at
in Los Angeles last weekend. I had a great time. It was
really great seeing so many cane fans. I am working on finalizing my
travel schedule for the summer and fall. It looks like I'll be visiting
Tampa, Atlanta, NJ, Washington DC, Boston, Denver, Chicago, Atlanta
again, and maybe a few others.
I have two new canes for
the Crown Jewels Collection. One has a working Wartenburg Wheel
rising up from a sterling silver monster face. The other Is a sterling
silver Goddess figure (nicely detailed!) with flowing hair and dress,
surrounded by faceted amethyst gemstones and sterling silver trim. It
would be a very nice cane for a Goddess. I hope to get them photographed
and on the website within a few days. If you are interested in either,
feel free to email me.
Valentines Day Loopy Canes and some new jewelry are now on the Crown
Jewels page. We now accept all major credit cards. We have added
Discover and American Express to those already accepted.
February 4: The
Flaming Hearts Gift Sets are ready! They can be found on the Crown
Jewels page of the website. There are only four sets of this limited
edition set available. The Valentines Day Loopy Cane will be on the
website tomorrow. There will be five Loopy Canes available.
I expect to have photos of the new Valentines Day limited
edition canes on the website tomorrow. Flaming Heart

below). Beginning Monday, February 5, our shopping
cart will accept Discover and American Express credit
cards, as well as Visa and MasterCard.
I am not quite finished with the limited edition Valentines Day works
yet, so I thought I'd give some descriptions of what I'm working on. The
first is a limited edition cane SET. Matching 9mm and 10.5mm canes in
each set, with a sterling silver heart and marquis cut garnet gemstone
'flames' coming out of the top of the heart. With sterling heart trim,
of course. Price for the two cane set will be around $190, and it
is limited to only four sets of this design.

If you would like to pre-order either of these to reserve yours, please
Valentines Day items are almost ready. There are some full sized canes,
special edition loopy canes in a gift box, and lots of new jewelry. It
will all appear on the website very soon.
January 2: Thank
you for your continued support of Canes4pain�. I love supplying you with
fun and evil things to warm up your life. 2006 was a fun year, and I am
looking forward to 2007. I am thinking about designs for
Valentines Day limited edition canes. Also,
some new cane sets, designs for the Royal Pains and Crown Jewels
If you would like to meet me in person, I will be
attending and vending at the Boston Fetish Fair Fleamarket later this
December 12: It has been
busy here. I feel like one of Santa's elves lol Some notes about
shipping: I strongly suggest that all international orders
are sent Global Express now. It gives us tracking, and gets to you in
3-5 business days. There is still time to order and ship domestic
US orders by Priority Mail or Express Mail. I'd say after December 19th,
domestic orders will need to go by express mail. We should be ok with
Priority until then.
I have some more Crown Jewels canes that are almost
ready.. those that I didn't quite finish a few weeks ago. They should be
on the website by the end of the week. I have a fresh batch of Birch for
Birch Rods too :)
The new Crown Jewels Collection Canes are here! They are now on the
Crown Jewels page of the website. I am very proud of them :-)
Usually at this time of year, I make a limited edition cane with
5-10 canes of the same design. I decided not to do that this year,
and instead, use my time to work on Crown Jewels Canes of various
Almost all of them are one of a kind. I think they will be even
more cherished by their new owners because of the individuality of each
design. I made a full range of styles, from subdued gemstone creations,
to some very extravagant flamboyant works.
I hope you are pleased.
November 9: The new canes
are almost ready for the Crown Jewels Collection. There will be a huge
range of styles. I expect to have them on the website by Monday. Sneak
peaks may be available sooner. I've been working very hard, and can't
wait to hear your comments on them. Prices for this batch will start
October 30: Kinky Kollege
was a great event, exceptionally well organized and lots of fun :-)
am home. I am rested. Watch out, tender butts, I'm back to work, making
I have some new canes ready for the
Crown Jewels Collection. Some new jewelry
too. One cane is made using an antique (made in 1850-1890) sterling
silver handle that was originally on a parasol or umbrella or cane or
something like that. It is spectacular. Hopefully someday I will get
that good at silver work :-)
I will be working on Crown Jewels Canes for the next
few weeks. If there is a certain stone or design you are looking for,
let me know. I sometimes have pieces started or even finished, but delay
putting them on the website. Producing canes is so much more enjoyable
than updating the website lol Feel free to inquire.
I spent last week restocking all of the various sizes
of School Canes. I had many requests to make
Loopy Canes longer, and that is what I did. They are very nice, and
will be ready to ship within a day or two.
September 18, 2006: I am
working on new designs for the Crown Jewels collection. I expect them to
be ready in about 3-4 weeks. It was a very busy summer, and I am looking
forward to the fall and winter seasons :) You can see me and the canes
at www.kinkykollege.com in
October in Chicago, and www.brevent.org
in DC in December. I am looking forward to spending lots of time
here in Florida in the next few months making lots of canes for you.
I will be
starting some new silversmithing classes next week. I spent the summer
traveling to vend, and studying the artistry on lots and lots of antique
sterling silver objects. I hope to get as good as some of the styles I
saw, and would like to incorporate some similar styles into my cane
handles. I think you will be pleased with the results.
Here are a few examples of antique works that I've been studying. The
influence of styles like these will be evident in future cane handles.
July 18, 2006:
My darling customers, the Canes4pain�
shopping cart is now working perfectly. It will accept Visa and
Mastercard transactions, and is a secure system.
I am working on restocking 7mm glossy canes. I am
out of them in all 7 colors. Everyone is enjoying those whippy little
July 17, 2006:
I just returned from TESfest in New Jersey. It was
a great event. I am looking forward to traveling to Shadow Lane, Thunder
in the Mountains, & Boston Fetish Fair Fleamarket this
summer, and Kinky Kollege and
Black Rose in the fall. Please come to my booth and say hello if you are
attending any of those events.
I will have a new batch of birch for the Traditional
Birch Rods soon. I will be offering a clear coated rattan cane soon..
even though I can't understand why people are so squeamish about
using uncoated rattan canes on multiple partners and they think using
leather on multiple partners is ok. But the look is nice.. i do
love shiny, sparkly things. For now, if you'd like a cane coated, please
request it through email and I will do it for you.
June 7, 2006: There
are several new things around Canes4pain�. I now make a new item..
"wheelies". A wheelie is a wartenburg wheel with a decorative
custom handle, much like the Crown Jewels canes. Each will be numbered
in the order I made them, starting with 1, and going to...? The
owners of the couple that I've made so far are delighted with them.
There are some spectacular new canes in the Crown Jewels Collection.
I will be working for the next few weeks building more.
stops on the "Summer 2006 Tour" are for TESfest and Thunder in the
Mountains. Please come see me and the canes at those events, if you can
April 21: **NEW**
There is now jewelry in the Crown Jewels collection. Please take a look.
Also, the Reviews page was updated with some photos, and more people's
opinions of the canes :-) I am working on Crown Jewels collection
canes, and will not be accepting custom orders for a while so I can get
been very busy here lately. I am finishing my silversmithing classes
this week (for now, anyway). I have been studying chasing, repousse, and
engraving of silver, as well as working on custom canes. Plans for now
are to update a few pages of the website. I added a few canes to the
Crown Jewels Collection. I will be working on more so I have some to
show off on the upcoming Canes4pain� summer tour.
I will be adding some other
new items to the Crown Jewels collection too. Some sterling silver and
gemstone necklaces and bracelets.
This summer, I will be vending at
The Orlando Bash,
Thunder in the Mountains,
Boston Fetish Fair Fleamarket, and am considering a few events in the
fall. I look forward to
meeting a lot of you on those trips.
January 18: I enrolled in
silversmithing classes again so I could learn how to set the gemstones
for the Valentines Day Canes. They are finished and ready for you..
please see the Valentines Day 2006 Canes on the Crown Jewels page of the
website. They are a very limited edition of only five canes. I think
they will sell out quickly.
I will be in Boston for two days next
weekend to vend and show off the canes at the
Boston Fetish Fair Fleamarket. This two day trip will not delay
shipping on any orders. Please be sure to come see me and the canes if
you are in the area!
January 5: Valentines
It's coming. I'm working on some very limited
edition pretties for Vday. Happy new year, everyone :-) I hope
your 2006 is better than you can imagine.
December 27: **New Item**
These new Whangee Canes are for people into Corporal Punishment, S&M, or
just hard heavy play. They are not for the faint of heart. They
are beyond nasty, as far as levels of pain go. They give lots of
intensity with very little effort. Bottoms, don't buy this as a gift to
your top. Don't say I didn't warn you. No two are alike, and each
is very interesting looking.
They have leaf nodes every inch or
two, and each has a pronounced bulge lined with nasty little bumpy bits.
Nasty nasty nasty.
I have something new that I'm very excited about. I got
my hands on some of the material that was used in the past to make
Whangee Canes. This is some very nasty stuff, and not recommended for
people into lighter intensity. Each piece is an individual, one of
a kind. They have bulges and knobbly bits.
Evidently, canes are one of THE gifts to give this
season. It has been very busy here. I feel like Santa's little elf.. lol
I will continue to accept Custom Orders for a while, since I am still
working on the batch of Crown Jewels Canes that I started in October.
I have a fresh batch of Extreme Line Red
Birches. ouch ouch ouch. They are on the Multi-Canes page of the
website. I have some very exciting new designs that I'm working on-- a
"bumblebee cane" and whangee canes. I will soon be working on a
beautiful design for the 2006 Valentines Day canes. This year, they will
feature heart shaped, deep purple faceted amethyst hearts.
Winter Elegance Canes, seen below, will be available for a short time.
Please come see me and the lovely canes in person at the Boston
Fetish Fair Fleamarket in late January. I hope to meet a lot of
This year's Limited Edition Holiday Elegance Canes are
here, ready to order from the Crown Jewels page of the website. No more
than 7 canes with this design will be made. Here is a preview. For more
photos, please see Crown Jewels.
The winter holiday rush is here at Canes4pain.com . I
have been working on several custom canes, as well as this year's
beautiful Special Edition Holiday Elegance Canes.
If there is something special you'd like
to make your or somebody else's holiday warm and rosy, please request
it now. This is the time to request custom canes, to be
delivered in time for gift giving.
I have jury duty today, and will be
traveling to Tampa this weekend for the
Academy's Back to School event.
I have some new items that debuted during my summer
travels. They were very well received, and I hope you like them, too.
The Butt Beater (left) and Loopy Canes (center) will appear in the Royal
Pains Collection, and canes with soft fragrant suede handles (right)
will be in the Specials Collection.
Special, Custom Orders and Crown Jewels for the winter
beginning a batch of Crown Jewels Canes and am also going shopping for
cane decorations. I only make one or two buying trips per year. If there
is something you would like me to make for you, this is the ideal time
to request it. I plan to have these canes ready in time for people to
give or get them as winter holiday gifts.
I just finished a fresh batch of British School
Disciplinary Canes. They can be seen on the Wickedly Traditional page of
the website. They are delicious. There is just "something" about fresh
rattan, shaped and sanded to a perfect, silky finish.. yummm.. I'm sure
you will love them for all of the upcoming Back to School parties :-)
Last week was definitely School Cane week here. Lots of them were
shipped all over.
All of the new canes in the Crown Jewels Collection are now on that page
of the website. I hope you like them :-) I just finished the
descriptions for them today.
I have a fresh batch of Birch for
the Traditional Birch Rods (Wickedly Traditional page).
July 29: I
and the canes are back from Denver. We were vending at Thunder in the
Mountains. What a beautiful vending space.. great hotel, great people,
great party :-) I am running a special on Blue Glossy Handled
Canes. A set of three canes (one in each size- 7mm, 9mm, 10.5mm) is
available for $60.00. You can get more info on the "Specials" page of
I have several new canes for the Crown
Jewels Collection and will be working on putting them on the Crown
Jewels page for you to see.
If you are attending the Boston Fetish
Fair Fleamarkete next weekend, please stop by the Canes4pain.com booth
and say hello. :-)
July 13: I
and my cane design studio have now moved to a new location in the Fort
Myers, Florida area. I now have more room to work :-) The canes
and I are very happy here, and love our new outdoor workspace. It took a
long time to get here and get set up, but I am happy to report I am now
delightedly working on new cane designs, and restocking birch rods, etc.
Today I updated the Crown Jewels
Collection by moving the sold items over to the Cane Gallery page. I did
that to make room for the new canes on the Crown Jewels page. They are
finished and should be appearing soon. I'm sure you'll like the new
I will be displaying my work and vending
next week at Thunder in the Mountains in Denver. We can be seen in
Boston on August 6 at the Boston Fetish Fair Fleamarket. Both events
were a lot of fun last summer. I am very much looking forward to both
April 7: I
am happily working away on restocking School Canes and Rattan Birch
Rods. They will be ready in another day or two. Then I'll be able to
work on some new Crown Jewels Canes. I can't wait to get started on
I will be a presenter at the Orlando Bash
in June. (www.orlandobash.com)
My class will be : "Disciplinary Canes: Getting up to Speed" It
will be a class for people new to the stripes and joys of Rattan.
I've been in bed with the flu for a week. Any orders I was holding to
ship will be shipped tomorrow. I didn't want to get germs on your canes,
and didn't feel even close to well enough to stand in line at the post
office. Things will be back to normal tomorrow though.
I have a new cane on the Crown Jewels page. Here is a sneak preview...
it is really nice :-)
Things have been VERY busy here lately.
Besides looking for a new place to live (in the same area of Florida), I
am taking classes in Silversmithing. I now have the ability to really
personalize canes with Sterling or Pure Silver. The pure silver can be
molded into any shape. I've been having a great time working with my new
skills, and have been accepting orders for custom canes that utilize my
new talents. I'm really having fun with it, and know many of you will
love the results. I am working on a cane with a person's name written in
Rubies, set in pure silver, one with someone's initials, and a few
Orders are still going out on a daily basis. It is taking
me longer to get new designs on the website. If there is something you'd
like me to make, or you are curious as to what new Crown Jewels are
already made but not yet on the website, feel free to email and ask. The
cane shown above has been finished for over a month. I have a few others
not on the website too.
HAPPY NEW YEAR to my dear friends, fans, customers, and cane lovers!!!!
I hope 2005 brings you much happiness and many scarlet cane
stripes :-) I'll do my best to keep the stripes coming!
I am working on special designs for
Valentines Day. I am making two sets. Each set will have two canes in
it. One will be designed with Amethyst gemstones, and the other with
Garnets. I will also be making canes with Swarovski Crystal hearts. They
will all be ready to show off soon :-)
Happy Holiday wishes to you!! I hope that your
Canes4pain.com canes add a lot of warmth and red stripes to your holiday
season! Thank you so much for your support and encouragement. It has
been a wonderful year here in the cane design studio.
There is just one Jingle Bells Limited
Edition Cane available. It can be ordered from the Specials or the Crown
Jewels page of the website.
I have a couple of new creations that
will be on the Crown Jewels page soon. One has a cluster of 25 faceted
Amethyst gemstones set in Sterling Silver, with a handle that is all
Sterling Silver and a 2 inch tall Swarovski Crystal Prism at the top.
The other is a goddess figure in
Sterling, resting on royal blue beads. She will be holding a in
her arms. She hasn't yet told me which kind of gemstone she'd prefer,
Gift Certificates are ready!! They have a lovely
snowflake design, and can be used to order anything on the
Canes4pain.com website. No expiration date. No shipping charges to be
mailed first class. Faster shipping will be extra. Denominations are in
multiples of $25, beginning with $25.
They have a very upscale look. There is a
snowflake design in gray-blue, white, and metallic silver. The
snowflakes in the photo that look dark, are actually metallic silver.
They are very nice, and would make a great gift.
It has been a VERY busy several weeks at
Canes4pain�! Holiday orders have been coming in, fast and furious. We
will be shipping until the day before Christmas for Christmas delivery,
using Express Mail overnight service. All orders until January are being
gift wrapped before shipping.
I have a few new canes finished that will
be on the website asap. There is a sterling silver wolf, a cane with a
beautiful Tigers Eye stone at the top, a spectacular piece with faceted
Amethyst gemstones, and a Goddess-like figure that will be holding a
gemstone.. i haven't decided if she wants an opal, sapphire, ruby, or
garnet heart though. That's why she is not quite ready. If you'd like
her and have a preference, feel free to let me know.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone :-) I really
appreciate your support and encouragement throughout the year. It's been
great corresponding with and meeting so many of you recently. Have a
great Thanksgiving! Today I checked all the payment buttons on the
Canes4pain.com website. There were a few that were not working.They
should all be in perfect order now.
Today I added six new canes to the Crown Jewels
Collection. Some canes with Sterling Silver Dragons, a Sterling Flower,
and Lady Opal are all there for adoption. The gift giving season is
here.. I am inundated with orders, and the lines at the post office are
much longer than usual. Jingle Bells Canes, the Canes4pain.com
Special Limited Edition Canes are ready.. see below.
I am delighted to announce that the Special Limited
Edition Jingle Bells Canes for Winter, 2004 are ready!! They are
The Peppermint Stick Canes were
introduced and SOLD OUT at Black Rose, and I only have one Candy Cane
Cane left. I will try to make some more, as I catch up on some other
things I am working on. Black Rose was great.. lots of canes were
adopted to new homes, and I was able to attend a class on Hard Caning..
Special Edition Canes for winter, 2004... they are almost
finished!!! I will be making a maximum of 10 of this Special Edition. I
will make five to start, and if I have more orders, will make as many as
needed, up to 10 at the most. These are going to be really nice.
Canes4pain� will also be offering "Candy
Canes" & "Peppermint Sticks" for the winter holiday season. The Candy
Cane canes will look sort of like a red tinsel-striped crook handled
school cane. The Peppermint Stick canes are straight canes, with a
peppermint stick-like design. I am sure whoever uses these will
find them to be very sweet. I'm not so sure of the recipient. All three
winter themed designs will be available in a set, and will also be sold
Speaking of sets and designs coming
I am now offering a Leather Pride Set of canes. It is three
glossy handled Canes, wrapped together, with a 2x3 inch laminated
Leather Pride Flag. The set consists of a 7mm Red, a 9mm Blue, and a
10.5mm Black handled cane.
I will also be
offering a sets of Wickedly Traditional Canes. The sets will be made
from combinations of canes found on the Wickedly Traditional page of the
Canes4pain.com website... British School and Singapore Punishment canes.
There are a
couple Sterling Silver Dragon and Swarovski Crystal sets available.
Photos will be on the website soon.
I recently obtained some
very nice, soft supple, fragrant leather that is just begging to encase
some cane handles. When I first started making canes years ago, i
offered leather handles and then stopped. Leather handles will soon be
Most of what is mentioned above will be
ready and on the website within a week or so. Please watch for the new
I just returned from vending at Folsom Street Fair in San
Francisco. It was quite an experience!! It was a real treat
meeting so many of you in person!!! I will be staying in Florida until I
leave to vend at Black Rose (www.br.org)
during the first week of November.
If anyone would like a little host or
hostess gift for the halloween party you are attending next month, I
will have a few Halloween themed canes ready soon. These are always
somewhat silly canes, with ghosts or ghouls, witches, jack 'o lanterns,
etc on them, and are always around $15 each. I've been making them for 4
or 5 years.
I am hoping to be able to introduce
this year's very limited edition Christmas Canes at Black Rose next
month. I can't wait to see them completed.. they are going to be very

I've been very busy working on new canes and birches, and
a few other new items that should be ready soon. I am starting to work
on this year's Special Edition Canes for the winter holidays. I hope to
give you a little sneak preview soon.. the canes are going to be
exquisite :) I was working on the handles today. Wait until you
see!! A grouping of faceted garnets will be the main focal point of the
cane. Where I autograph each one, there will be holly leaves and berries
made of Emeralds and Rubies :-) Or maybe that is mistletoe... I can't
wait to finish them and show them off !!! I expect them to be ready by
I found some lovely pale blue crystals
for a two cane set of Dragon Canes. I'm going to work on those tomorrow.
I've been shopping for cane decorations a lot lately. I have these
fantastic Porcupine Quills too. I haven't quite figured out how I want
them placed on the canes yet. But I will. Sorry, fellow submissives..
you are probably going to hate them (or love them).
I also wanted to share some party news
with you... Dana Specht, a very
skilled and well known disciplinarian, is having a party at an exclusive
resort in Carmel Valley, California, from November 5-7. It sounds like a
LOT of fun. Check it out!
August 31: I
just put some new canes on the Specials and the Crown Jewels pages of
the Canes4pain� website. I hope you like them. I am busy arranging my
travel schedule for the fall, winter and spring. Canes4pain� will be
vending at Folsom Street Fair
in San Francisco on September 26,
Black Rose from November 5-7 in
Washington DC, Shadow Lane in
Las Vegas from April 15-17. I have also applied to vend at MAL in DC in
January and IML in Chicago in May, and I am looking forward to the great
Orlando Bash from June 2-5.
Please come see me if you are attending any of these events, and say
The new batch of Extreme Line Red Birches (known in my dungeon as
"rattle bitches" because of the sound and feel of them). They are
available on the Multi-Canes page. I now have the shopping cart finished
on the whole website. It took me quite a while to figure out how to
complete it for the Royal Pains page of the website. It is connected to
a secure server, so your credit card information will not be visible to
anyone, including me. I only get your name, address, and shipping
Hello from Connecticut. The canes and I are on our way
home to Florida :) We've been gone for a month. I can't wait to get home
and work on the new Crown Jewels and Birch Rods. My stock on Birch Rods
is getting low.
Here is a photo of my new item-- Real
Birch Rods. These will reside on the Multi-Canes, and Wickedly
Traditional pages until they are gone. They will only be available for a
short time. I will not carry them as part of my regular line. The birch
branches were harvested at the perfect time.. early spring, before they
sprout leaves. These have a VERY sharp sting and can be used anywhere on
the body because they do not penetrate deeply. You will only get
surface/skin damage even if you use them hard. But boy, do they sting!
These Birch Rods will be available with the purchase of anything else on the Canes4pain.com website,
as a thank you to my fans. They will not be sold separately. Please see
them on the Wickedly Traditional or the Multi-Canes page to order.
July 29: I
will be vending this weekend in Chicago at the 10th Anniversary Party
for Crimson Moon, and next weekend at the Boston Fetish Fair Fleamarket
(August 7). This is not affecting shipping of orders from the website. I
have all of my canes with me and am still shipping the day I receive
orders. Everybody really seems to like the new shopping cart and the
ability to pay easily by Mastercard
the Canes4pain.com website :-)
Goodness, it's been a busy week at Canes4pain�! The
shopping cart is working well.
working on some new canes for the Crown Jewels Collection :) There
is one that has a large sterling silver rose at the top, and the entire
handle is braided sterling silver, with no rattan showing through! It
has green leaves made of malachite. It is quite a piece. I'm not sure I
want to sell it. I think might just keep it around for inspiration and
for people to drool over when I'm vending. Not sure yet. Stay tuned.
I am also working on some spectacular canes with sterling silver
dragons on them. Each of the 3 larger canes I am working on, has a large
Swarovski Crystal at the top and lots of sterling trim. I am considering
making one or more of them into a cane set because I've obtained some
smaller, matching dragons and crystals. I guarantee that all of the new
additions to the Crown Jewels Canes will be really nice.
June 29: After
slaving away 15 hours a day for about a week, I have the whole
Canes4pain.com website rebuilt. I got rid of the frames, and added a
shopping cart and couple new pages. My credit card processing is
working. I can now accept payment from my customers around the world via
Visa! The shopping cart is finished on the whole canes website, except
the Royal Pains page. That page is being a Royal Pain lol If you want to
order from that page, please email me and I can enter your payment
information manually. I will still accept money orders too. Now.. to get
back to work on canes!!! Finally!!!
I finally solidified my decision to vend at Folsom
Street Fair in San Francisco in late September. The cost and logistics
of that event were so mind boggling I had trouble deciding. I have
committed my time and energy to it by plunking down the vending fees,
etc. I haven't been to San Francisco since 1978. I loved it and
seriously considered moving there permanently at the time. What a
beautiful area. I'm really looking forward to it now :-)
I am building a shopping cart for your shopping
I will soon be able to accept credit cards easily without
you going through a company such as paypal, etc.
I have a new item that is not yet on the website. I now
have Birch Rods made from birch branches! They have a very intense,
sharp sting! When we tested the prototype, I just wanted to hide my butt
on the far side of the spanking bench after just a few moderate swats!
I can't wait to hear your comments on these!! LOL They were
harvested at the perfect time of the year, just as the buds were forming
in the spring. This makes them very flexible. Two were tested on me last
week.. one that was previously soaked, and the other was dry. They both
held up very well... we can't say the same for me. Damn, they sting!!! I
will get them on the website within the next few days. I need to unpack
my camera, etc first.
The new Birch Rods will be introduced at
a very low price. These are not permanent toys, but can be expected to
last a year or two. If soaked the night before use, they will last a
long time, according to accounts I've read. Because of this and the fact
that Birch is not readily available here in South Florida, these will
not have the lifetime guarantee that all of my other work has. I think
you'll find that their low price more than makes up for that, though :)
I'm sure you will love or hate them very much, depending on which side
of the handle you are on.
Today I returned home from SE Leather
Fest in Atlanta. It was a lot of fun! People kept coming to my vending
booth, seeing the name (Canes4pain�), and exclaiming, "wow,
Canes4pain�!!!! I've felt your work!!!" While rubbing their butts.
lol It was funny and great to meet so many fans at once! The weekend
before, I attended the Orlando Bash. I love the Bash! It is so nice to
party with my Florida friends! I've been to three events in the last
four weeks and they were all really fun. I've been itching to make some
new canes, though, and I can't while on the road. lol I am
finally home for a few weeks. My next trip is July 15th weekend- Thunder
in the Mountains in Denver. My schedule gets hectic again beginning
In the few weeks that I'm home, I am
going to restock my Rattan Birch Rods~ I am very low on Black & Blue
Birches and out of Extreme Line & Standard Birches. Then I will be

blast. It was great meeting many of you. It was really fun being in NY
I've been working my tail
off to build stock so I have enough canes for Canes4pain.com website
orders, as well as my summer tour which begins very soon. I was
recently dumped by the popular online payment company that most people
used to pay for their canes. They said I sell adult items! Ugh. I am
currently investigating credit card processing companies to give you a
new, quick easy method of payment.
going on the road this summer! Please come see me-- say hello and try on
some canes! I hope to meet many of you in person during my travels!!!

I am also considering a few other weekend-long
events. If you would like info on any of them, click on their name to
view their website.
I have a nice
fresh batch of Glossy Canes (Royal Pains collection). They are available
in Black, Red, Blue, Purple, Burgundy, Hunter Green, and now Silver. I
am experimenting with metallic finishes. The shades of blue and purple
for these canes has been adjusted to give a slightly darker, deeper,
more saturated color than we had before. I am very pleased with them.
I am currently
only making Ballsy Canes in the 9mm 5/16" size, instead of 3/8" and
1/4". Singapore Punishment Canes have been selling like crazy in the
last couple weeks.
I have been
working on the new batch of Crown Jewels Collection Canes. There is a
new batch of Grand Dukes finished. Those are the one inch thick & thuddy
Shadow Lane Party in Las Vegas
was a blast!! Imagine 400 spanking enthusiasts all in the Stardust Hotel
on the strip. We were all reserved on four floors in the same area of
the hotel, and you could hear sounds of slapping and giggling all over
the place when you walked down the halls.
The photo above shows me and the canes for sale at
the Shadow Lane party in Las Vegas in April. The canes were for
sale, not me. Below is the lovely
Ms Stephanie Locke using Canes4pain.com canes on a naughty boy
during the banquet at the Shadow
Lane Las Vegas Party.
Ms Dana Specht
was delighted with her new cane with the bright red handle that
perfectly matched her outfit. She looked very beautiful with it and said
she is going to use it in her next movie. You can click on either
woman's name to veiw their website. Both are incredible women. It was a
joy meeting and speaking to them. One even had time to play "cane the
canemaker" with me LOL What fun!!! It was a great weekend!
My new silver is here :-) I can't wait to decorate new canes with it!! I
just finished a new batch of Extreme Line Red Birch Rods. Mine was used
on me last week.. ::adjusting halo:: I think they should be called
BITCHES instead of birches. The Garnet Tears of Love Canes that
were made for Valentines Day are sold out. I still have a couple of the
Purple Crystal Heart canes, if you'd like one. They can be seen on
the Crown Jewels Collection page.
January 19: I am
very pleased to announce that the Valentines Day canes are ready. Photos
will be on the website Wednesday, Jan 21, probably. It took months
for me to figure out the final designs for these. They are very
There are two designs. One is a limited
edition of 10 pieces and the other is a limited edition of five.
The design with 10 pieces features a purple (with royal blue accents)
Swarovski Heart crystal set atop Sterling Silver. There are a lot of
silver accents on this piece, as well as a smaller diamond-like faceted
heart shaped cubic zirconia, that sits atop the word "love".
The design with five pieces features
blood red-colored garnets set in sterling silver, and winding up the
handle between two sterling silver stripes. These also have the faceted
cubic zirconia heart accenting the word "love". Both pieces have a lot
of Sterling (92.5% pure) and Fine (99% pure) Silver on them.
These descriptions are very quick and
simple. The designs of these pieces are very intricate and beautiful.
I've left out a lot of details. Please check back on Thursday Jan 22nd
to see the photos of them. All are signed and numbered, and will
be ready to ship beginning January 23.
September 5, 2003- I just returned from

This photo shows me and part of the Canes4pain.com vending
table at the party. I was bending over so someone could try out their
new cane. The canes in the photo are available on the Royal Pains (in
the butt) page.
There are also
some canes with red stones and royal blue stones for the Royal Pains
page. There is a lot to update, so if you are getting impatient and want
something *now* please email me at WhypDancer@canes4pain.com
