Intro
The book explores contemporary jewellery as an experimental practice that engages with craft, design, fashion and popular culture.
Profiling over 70 makers, with extensive illustrations and commentary, this book provides an overview of the new directions that jewellery is taking from the innovative use of materials to conceptual pieces stretching the traditional definitions of what jewellery is. With an introductory text, as well as essays by specialists in the design, creation and history of jewellery, the makers featured in this book are also brought into view through profiles and interviews. As a visual sourcebook, this publication is accessible for those interested in contemporary craft, fashion, culture and style while providing essential reading for all jewellery makers.
