Creative Techniques For Polymer Clay Jewelry
by Nanetta Bananto

As usual, the book begins with the chapter on polymer clay basics.  The rest of the chapters are: Canes, Projects, Gallery, Templates, Transfer Images.

This book is really a study on how the same canes in different colors can affect the final look of an item.  There are 10 color palettes to choose from, though the author makes a point of encouraging you to try your own palettes.

The canes are all fairly simple – leaves, flowers, spiral, stripes, etc.  The projects are also fairly simple – pins, bracelets, pendants, earrings,  the most complicated on is a wearable vessel.  Each project is done in one color palette, however at the end of each there are pictures of the same project in other palettes.

For me, the magic in this book is how the canes are laid out and combined and how the same canes in different colors look so amazingly different.  I’d have to say this is more a beginner book in what it teaches but an experienced clayer will have fun exploring the different color palettes.
