Intro
A scholarly, thoughtful, and serious compendium of thinking about contemporary jewelry, from uncovering its origins to considering its definition among the do-it-yourself trend … A tome for the eclectic reader and fan of today’s artistry in jewelry.
Art Jewelry Forum (AJF) announces the publication of Contemporary Jewelry in Perspective, the organization's most ambitious project to date. Art Jewelry Forum produced the hardcover survey of contemporary jewelry with Lark Books, an internationally recognized publishing imprint specializing in contemporary craft. Notable writers from all parts of the globe offer their informed opinions and perspectives on questions such as: "What is contemporary jewelry?," "What is the history of this medium?," and "How do different cultures approach art jewelry?" This book answers all those questions and the authors' insights are supported by hundreds of color photographs documenting the diversity and vitality of contemporary jewelry. Contemporary Jewelry in Perspective is essential reading for passionate art, craft, design, and fashion enthusiasts as well as anyone curious about jewelry.

A "Speakers Tour" in support of Contemporary Jewelry in Perspective is scheduled for fall 2013. Art museums, cultural centers, and educational institutions across the United States are hosting presentations and workshops with many of the book's contributing writers. The Speakers Tour itinerary and event details are available now.
