Polymer clay is readily accessible and easy to use, you can make everything (and anything) with it, from sculptures and figurines, to artworks, decorations, homewares, and wearable jewellery. It’s lightweight, flexible and strong. No special tools or equipment are required to cure it, it is relatively cheap, and you only need to start with the primary colours plus black and white, to mix any shade you like.

In this book you will learn 10 easy yet exciting techniques including slab and cane making, marbling and colour mixing, inlay techniques, printing onto clay, surface embellishments and more to create 20 unique jewellery pieces. The projects in this book vary in complexity, but are accessible to both novice and advanced makers alike.

As you build your skills and learn the techniques via the book, you will realize that you can combine techniques to create all-new results. The skills you learn in this book will open up a limitless world of further experimentation for you to discover.
