In this illustrated collection of fashion illustrations of jewels, Vogue jewellery editor Carol Woolton draws out the essence of the jewellery designers' creative energy. Organized thematically around the topics of civilization, the natural world, art and architecture, culture and literature, raw materials and history, this book examines the relationship between drawing and jewellery design and features pages from the designers' sketchbooks, images from their mood boards, and photographs of their newest designs. Including insightful interviews with each designer, the book sheds light on the creative process and tells a gripping story of how an idea is transformed into a beautiful, polished jewel. A compelling mix of text and visual display, this book presents the best of the art of jewellery design.

3.0 out of 5 stars gorgeous but not practical 5 Sep 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I found this book very inspirational - what gorgeous gems, what luscious pictures, what creativity! Am jealous of those who can afford to own such beautiful works of art. But as another reviewer notes, there is very little in terms of guidance for those who want expertise on how to render gems in 2D. You can infer techniques from the beautiful drawings that the designers have provided, but it would be nice to reinforce these with hints and tips on how to achieve such a result.

The book is so luscious that I may hang on to it anyway as a coffee table book, which is perhaps what it is in the end.

By Y
Anyone love jewellery and interested in the design process would love this book. This book is full of wonderful drawings from current designers and how they approached the finishing designs. Also an excellent reference book to have in hand.
