Friedrich Becker was a goldsmith of world renown and undoubtedly one of the most outstanding artistic personalities of our day, truly altering the course of goldsmiths' work in the latter half of the 20th century. Becker was the creator of kinetic jewellery and well known as a sculptor and designer. His work is collected by many major museums and has featured in inumerable exhibitions.

The purity of form in his work laid the foundations for a new aesthetic style in jewelllery. Stemming from his preoccupation with precision, he combined high standards of workmanship with a supreme sublety. In his jewellery "wearable" art was born. The book focuses on the extraordinary genius of Becker, a master craftsman and mentor, who would have welcomed this exploration of his work to inspire artists and art historians alike.
