Overview

A must for any aficionado of jewelry, design, or craft: a worldwide survey of over 100 new jewelers and their exquisite designs
Jewelry has long been an accessory attributed with talismanic power and significance, and its appeal crosses all boundaries of culture, age, and gender. In this beautiful new book, Olivier Dupon introduces over 100 of the finest modern jewelers practicing today. Both up-and-coming and established designers are featured, and the sheer variety of their work is amazing. The book showcases fine jewelry, fashion jewelry, luxury jewelry, conceptual jewelry, and more. Hundreds of color photographs display the work, and there are also portraits of designers at work as well as shots of studios, workshops, and boutiques. Every type of jewelry—earrings and rings, brooches and bracelets, headpieces and necklaces—is represented. Rough stones appear with exquisitely faceted gems; organic forms vie with geometric structures; feathers and leather take their place next to platinum and diamonds. The range of designers is global, and for most of them this is the first time their work is appearing in book form.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Dupon (The New Artisans: Handmade Designs for Contemporary Living) presents more than 100 established and upcoming artisans and jewelry designers who create pieces that range from classic to whimsical to cutting-edge. Filled with more than 800 illustrations and photographs, the book is divided into nine chapters, each highlighting a stylistic category. Artists within each category are arranged alphabetically with entries providing a brief biographical sketch; their website address; and colorful illustrations of their rings, pins, brooches, necklaces, bracelets, and other items that are prominently featured and identified. The dazzling result is a book offering a wide range of innovative designs that showcase both traditional materials from gold and silver to various other precious metals and gems, as well as nontraditional materials such as beads, fabric, feathers, porcelain, ribbons, and wood. The closing pages include a resource guide listing where these artists and their works are found. VERDICT While Dupon's delightful work may seem like a coffee-table book, it is much more. This guide to the new stars of jewelry should be found in a variety of libraries with collections focusing on fashion, decorative arts, and photography. Highly recommended.—Stephen Allan Patrick, East Tennessee State Univ. Lib., Johnson City
