Charlotte Stowell shows how to make food-themed polymer clay beads using modelling techniques, and how to make them up into fun and attractive jewellery. First there is advice about the few simple tools and the basic techniques needed to make the beads, including instructions on texturing and varnishing the beads to create realistic food models. We then learn to make really striking jewellery such as a chilli charm, cup cakes brooch, dolly mixtures necklace, burger bracelet, fondant fancies earrings, and much more. Step by step instructions and detailed close-up photographs make the projects easily achievable. Where necessary, the constituent parts of the beads are shown with the instructions, and annotated for clarity, then the finished jewellery is pictured in all its splendour. People who like fun and funky jewellery, as well as foodies, will love these polymer clay projects.
Charlotte Stowell has worked extensively in creative crafts both for adults and children, covering a wide range of techniques including papercraft, paper engineering and polymer clay work. She has written several books and contributes regularly to craft magazines.
