     Product Description-Metal Clay and Mixed Media Jewelry:
  Innovative Projects Featuring Resin, Polymer Clay, Fiber, Glass,
               Ceramics, Collage Materials, and More
 Metal clay starts as clay and turns into metal. Does it get any more magical? Now it does—with Metal Clay and Mixed Media
 Jewelry. Author Sherri Haab takes this compelling material, today's hottest craft item, to the next level, brilliantly combining it
  with other media ranging from the timeless to the unexpected. Ribbons, gold leaf, pottery shards, transparent resin, polymer
clay, leather, and more are used to create stunning jewelry. Beautiful photography showcases these innovative pieces, and full
step-by-step instructions make it easy to re-create them. New formulations of metal clay and newly developed firing techniques
 are presented clearly so that crafters can achieve professional results. Sophisticated enough for artists yet simple enough for
 beginners, Metal Clay and Mixed Media Jewelry is the only book that blends metal clay with such a variety of mixed media to
                                                           make magic.

This book has it all- Fabulous, February 7, 2007 By R. Eberhard "Eclectic Studio" (Australia)
This review is from: Metal Clay and Mixed Media Jewelry: Innovative Projects Featuring Resin, Polymer Clay, Fiber, Glass,
Ceramics, Collage Materials, and More (Paperback) As a PMC teacher I am always on the look out for new books, Sherri
Haab's newest book is an absolute winner. What sets her books apart are the photographs of the step by step instructions. They
are so incredibly detailed and precise that you would be hard pressed to make an error. One project on crotchet with wire and
PMC closures will have you crotcheting in a minute, better photos than many books dedicated to crotcheting! The written
instructions are also clear and concise.This book is broken into four sections Metal Clay essentials, Creative Connections (6
projects), Metal clay as a support or bezel (7 projects) and Color,Image and Surface Design, (7 Pprojects).Both PMC and Art
Clay are used in the projects which will make everyone happy. Whilst some of the Mixed Media has been done in other
publications, such as Ceramics, Glass, Resin, Keum Boo and Polymer to name a few, it is inclusions such as Painting on Silver,
Concrete insertions, Image transfers and crotchet...

  This review is from: Metal Clay and Mixed Media Jewelry: Innovative Projects Featuring Resin, Polymer Clay, Fiber, Glass,
Ceramics, Collage Materials, and More (Paperback) This book is jammed packed with helpful information and a ton of eye
candy that has me perusing the pages over and over! Having taken a PMC class and having read many books on the subject I
was very impressed with the plethora of projects and the detailed instructions. Even the most minute details are covered. And
the gallery is absolutely stunning and inspiring!Many books fall short when attempting to describe step-by-step instructions, but
Sherri Haab's book goes the extra mile. The steps outlined are detailed, easy to follow, and understand. The beautiful photos
are so incredible that I can hardly wait to try several of the projects covered! In fact, I have already started playing with resin:
Fun, fun, FUN!Anyone purchasing this metal clay book will not be sorry. Reading Sherri's book has definitely taken my art work
to a higher level. KUDOS!!!

disappointing, March 25, 2007 By George W. Seidel
  This review is from: Metal Clay and Mixed Media Jewelry: Innovative Projects Featuring Resin, Polymer Clay, Fiber, Glass,
Ceramics, Collage Materials, and More (Paperback) I was anxiously awaiting the release of Sherri's second book and must say
that I was disappointed when I finally received it. Many of the projects seemed to be near copies of projects in the metal clay
book that Louise Duhamel had in her book. There was the same bicycle reflector pendant, a similar project using cement, a
project using images covered in resin, a "Moon Baby" project etc. The rest of the projects had very dull and basic metal clay
work. There was a bracelet cuff project made with fabric where she made simple molded buttons. The crocheted bracelet had
simple metal clay circles on it. There was a leather bracelet with a rectangle of letters, similar to a piece in her first book. Other
projects were simple findings such as buckles and toggle clasps. Even the gallery pictures were disappointing. I recognized
most of them from previous magazines and books. Many from years ago. I guess what I am saying is that I expected innovation
and didn't get it. I understand that Sherri...
