Using the latest translucent, metallic, and liquid polymers, jewelry artists have pushed beyond the craft's traditional boundaries. This collection of exquisite contemporary jewelry showcases that progress, offering inventive techniques and insights from ground-breaking designers including Judith Skinner, Luann Udell, Linda Haunaumi, and Mari O'Dell.
Available in a myriad of colors and sheens, polymer clay can be cut, shaped, sculpted, and altered in many ways. For that reason, it's a wonderful medium for making jewelry. Today's leading artists show you how to push the envelope of this malleable material with an array of gorgeous brooches, pendants, bracelets, and earrings. A variety of surface techniques provides inspiration for creating your own distinctive designs.
Rarely has a volume featured so much pioneering work and so many eye-opening pieces to enhance your own practice.
As an added bonus, each piece is accompanied by design tips and illuminating commentary.
