Intro
Should jewelry be beautiful in order to enhance and beautify? Is beauty an objective ideal when it comes to art and thus to artistic jewelry? Does beautiful equal ornamental? And even if it does, could ornamental be distinctive, meaningful, symbolic and magical too?” 

These are some of the questions, as asked by the editor, Niki Stylianou, that AUTOR Magazine No.6 invites us to explore.
Since the beginning of ages, jewelry has passed first as a powerful adornment and, as we approach modern ages, as a way of self discovery and self expression. We are at that point. Contemporary jewelry needs contexts and conversation. Capturing the beauty in contemporary and art jewelry pieces turns into an investigative journey. 

The Beauty Issue reunites a selection of bold and playful collections and their stories, created and put into words and pictures by designers themselves, thus making the magazine an artistic project in itself. The designers question beauty and research its appearances and implications in contemporary and art jewelry. With thought pieces on jewelry, adorning the body with jewelry and physical grace, recycling and craftsmanship, nature versus technology and revisited cultural heritage, we discover the jewelry as a surplus and an extra through the subjective eye of beauty, discussing and questioning at this moment, if jewelry should be beautiful in order to enhance and beautify. Should it?
