Guild review 

 

This is the second book by American author Lisa Pavelka. Her first book was the very successful Polymer Clay Extravaganza. Not unreasonably the projects reflect American taste – they seem to favour “big” jewellery, although there is plenty to interest the British maker.

As the name implies, "Quick & Easy Gifts in Polymer Clay" offers 25 step-by-step projects rated by time, allowing crafters to easily find a project that fits their schedule. The projects on offer cover a wide variety of gift ideas, from home decor and jewellery to bookmarks and address books. There is a helpful "getting started" introduction to polymer clay and like all the North light Polymer clay books it is beautifully photographed and well presented.

This book should appeal to jewellery makers, and those interested in using polymer clay in home décor.
The book covers a whole range of techniques and it is an eye-opener to me (predominately a miniaturist) to see how far the medium is being taken. This book would make a nice addition to your collection.
