The Polymer Clay Cookbook: Tiny Food Jewelry to Whip Up and Wearby Jessica Partain, Susan Partain
The Polymer Clay Cookbook celebrates favorite foods with 20 tiny, deliciously realistic food charms to make from polymer clay and fashion into unique jewelry. Styled as a cookbook for the beginning miniaturist "chef," the introductory chapters discuss the "basic ingredients" and techniques used for polymer clay and jewelry-making. The remainder of the book offers 20 "recipes" grouped by category: fruits, breakfast, lunch and dinner, sweets and snacks, and holiday foods. Each recipe has a list of "ingredients," step-by-step directions with photographs, and suggested variations. Each piece is presented as a particular finished jewelry item, such as a necklace, but readers are encouraged to adapt the piece into any type of jewelry they choose. Each chapter also includes one of the authors' own cherished recipes for real food, including Sunday Morning Cinnamon Rolls, Grandma's Pasta Sauce, Decadent Raspberry Chocolate Cupcakes, and Mom's Holiday Sugar Cookies. Throughout, the authors--who are sisters--share their enthusiasm for family, sisterhood, and the tradition and feelings surrounding our favorite foods.

this book is terrific. There are alot of ideas to make items with polymer clay...and alot of pictures too! Looking forward to making some of the items in this book.
I bought this book knowing nothing about polymer clay. It was a great experience learning how to use it! Some of the instructions are a bit general, and at times hard to follow...so you should read the first two chapters a couple of times before you start. Pros: Step-by-step instructions with pictures, and two chapters on required materials and skills. Cons: Too-general skills and materials. At times hard to understand.
Love everything about this book!
