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.
