Commonly known by such brand names as FIMO, Sculpey, and Cernit, polymer "clay" is a claylike product made from polyvinyl chloride-soft and easy to work with until fired, yet rigid once baked at low temperatures. As polymer clay requires neither kilns nor expensive studio equipment, it is ideal for the novice jewelrymaker. Yet its wide range of available colors and its versatility when embellished with paints or metallic powders or when bonded with found objects makes polymer clay attractive to the professional artist as well. This book combines basic information on jewelrymaking, specific techniques required for working with polymer clay, and detailed instructions for 48 projects ranging from simple button covers to imaginative watch bands. Highly recommended for public libraries; academic libraries may prefer Nan Roche's less "project-oriented" The New Clay (Valley Pr., 1991).-Janice Zlendich, California State Univ. Lib., Fullerton

The title says it all. The directions are explicit; the pieces (illustrated with color photos) are inspiring. An exuberant source of ideas for experienced users of Fimo or Sculpey as well as those who've just been hankering to try. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
