Product Description

Product Description

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun fake food! 17 April 2010
If you're new to polymer clay or wanting to try something a bit different in your jewellery making, this is a good place to start. Jessica and Susan's writing style is friendly, fun and easy...they don't bog you down with unnecessary details or jargon.
True, most of the pieces aren't entirely realistic looking, but that's the whole point; this isn't a book on how to make mini food for dolls houses, it's for making charms, earrings, rings etc for the kooky and cool alike. They may not look sophisticated, but these aren't the things you'd be wearing to the opera anyway!
There is a good introduction at the beginning all about polymer clay; the different brands, how to condition it, colours to use. There is also a good section on basic jewellery making, such as headpins, making wrapped loops, what tools and clasps to use etc.
The addition of recipes for REAL food is a bonus. There are only 7 recipes for real food (compared to the 20 polymer clay food projects), so the real food doesn't take over (and they're only a page long and easily identified in the contents page).
Overall this is a fun read and a great starting point to get your imagination running for more foody themed jewellery items.

2.0 out of 5 stars Quite easy and not many imaginative ideas 9 Feb 2010
A little disappointed, much of the book is taken up with actual food recipes too which limits the amount of space for the clay projects. I think more suitable for children/teenagers like previous review. Certainly not enough content for my liking.

2.0 out of 5 stars Cookbook size indeed 26 Dec 2009
I am glad that i have not bought this book myself and received it as a xmas present. Instead of this book i would recommend any other books about modelling in miniature or even consider free projects in internet.
Their `food' projects are easy and pieces, obviously, are not realistic at all. This book is suitable for children more actually than for adult jewelry makers. Not worth the attention of serious "clayers".

Not sure what to write about this book, it doesn't really help me much, as I am building my Husbands Greengrocers. If you wanted to make jewelry then I think it would help more.
