Overview

From classic bangles and baubles to avant-garde sculptural pieces and body ornaments, this collection of striking photographs showcases the finest work of more than 80 jewelry designers. An eminent jeweler discusses the subject in all its aspects: materials, methods, aesthetics, and the interaction between the wearer and the ring, necklace, or brooch.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The Complete Book of Jewelry Making is a beautifully illustrated guide to jewelry-making techniques. In content it is similar to Jinks McGrath's The Encyclopedia of Jewelry-Making Techniques (LJ 11/1/95) with the addition of a very useful chapter on the properties of metals (gold and silver) and seven step-by-step projects for contemporary jewelry. When the techniques have been mastered, it is time for Jewellery: Design Sourcebook, a gallery of photographs of jewelry as art featuring the creations of over 75 contemporary artists. From a practical standpoint most of these are unwearable, but this is a rather fascinating look at the art jewelry of today. Both of these books are for larger or specialized arts and crafts collections. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
