    Great source of inspiration

    This book was one of the best I've read lately regarding creating contemporary jewelry using classical designs. Irina Miech uses the concepts of symmetry and repetition in designing jewelry with traditional elements and creating unique and innovative classical-style jewelry that is so stylish today. The photographs are stunning, and I love the beautiful designs she provides, from Art Nouveau and Victorian to my favorite, a Cleopatra’s necklace. This book is a wonderful reference and source of inspiration for anyone who enjoys making stylish and elegant jewelry.
