Addressing novices to the medium of polymer clay as well as more advanced crafters in the field, Belcher prepares an attractive handbook on making clay items; the more than 30 projects suggested here are inspired by traditions in working in glass, metal, fiber, painting and drawing, stone and bone and wood, and ceramics, since, as the author states, "polymer clay is the only medium that can emulate all of those different art forms." Gorgeous color photographs highlighting her work and the work of many other successful crafters guide the reader through a mouthwatering, even surprising, display of clay things to make, from beads that take after ones made of glass, to an enameled pin that would be a lovely accent to a blouse or blazer, to replications of Georgia O'Keeffe-type flowers to decorate a purse. For crafters adding more crafts to their repertoire. Brad Hooper
