It is eye-opening how a substance used to make white plumbing pipe can be transformed with unusual techniques (and combinations) by skilled artisans. Under Aimone's remarkable tutelage, polymer clay, called PVC here, becomes Italian millefiore beads, shiny abstract cuffs, intricate log-cabin quilt pins, and even calla lily-like earrings. Although other instructional polymer clay books exist, up to now all have focused on basic shapes and elemental design. The 14 selected artists do themselves proud by creating 33 items worthy of display and sale in any fine jewelry store. Instructions are almost complete, with enough visuals to follow--with the exception of a defined level of difficulty for each. And the pages upon pages of galleries showcase the beauties of a once-modest material. Barbara Jacobs

What is nice about this book is that it shows that even simple techniques can produce high-quality work. The techniques range from very basic to very complex (the cover art shows one of the more complex pieces). However, the eye for design, form and function enable us to envision our own work at this level. It's clear that all of us are capable of creating unique, beautiful and artistic pieces from polymer clay. This book will help us all get there.
You shouldn't pass this book up. It's a book that I'll reach for over and over for both inspiration and instruction.
