Beadwork Magazine Book Review

The June/July 2008 issue of Beadwork magazine is out now and features this review of my book:

“Learn from a Master

Polymer Clay Beads: Techniques–Projects–Inspiration

Grant Diffendaffer

This is a must-have book for all who want to make polymer beads, written by one of the premier polymer clay artists in the country, Grant Diffendaffer.  In crisp how-to photos and clear instructions, Diffendaffer shows how to use more than twenty methods for making and decorating polymer beads.  If you’ve ever seen this artist’s work, you know how distinctive his designs are–full of geometry, tribal motifs, bold texture, and sculptural form.  His outstanding book is a primer in exploring all of the innovative forms he’s mastered.  And while he makes everything look easy, the sophisticated results he achieves no doubt require some serious trial and error.  But here, the ends will justify the means!”
