Rarely has a volume featured so much pioneering work! With the latest translucent, metallic, and liquid polymers added to their arsenal, jewelry artists have pushed beyond the craft's traditional boundaries and entered new creative worlds. This collection of exquisite contemporary jewelry showcases that progress, offering inventive techniques, insights from contemporary creators, and eye-opening pieces by the premier innovators in polymer clay. Judith Skinner, who developed the now universally termed 'Skinner blend', offers a pin featuring a design inspired by an Amish quilt. Mixed-media artist Luann Udell demonstrates how to create a brilliantly colored necklace from faux African trade beads. And that's just the start! All the pieces appear in beautiful color images, accompanied by the artists' design tips and illuminating commentary.
