Jewelry Design [Hardcover]

Carissa Kowalski Dougherty

Available from these sellers.

Book Description

29 Aug 2008
Jewelry is commonly perceived as a beautiful piece of wearable art: stand-alone, sculptural, and aloof. However, in order to understand contemporary jewelry design, we need to view the work as we would the product of any design field: as conceptual projects, as material studies, as social commentaries, and as connections to the past. The various creations by international designers presented in this book give us an outline on current trends and developments in the field of jewelry. Their work is presented as a snapshot of individual practices, a broad sampling of innovative creations and forward-looking designers. What unites them are everyday considerations on context and production. Pictures as well as information on crafting techniques and materials underline the infinite creative potential of jewelry design. An index with contact information is enclosed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful pictures, but not what I was expecting 4 Nov 2008
By W. Swift - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The pictures in this book are absolutely beautiful! The jewelry is very modern and represents artists from all over the world. If you want what I would loosely call a "coffee table book", you will love this book. I was expecting more commentary from the artists (there is only a one paragraph artist biography/statement) and perhaps some insight as to why/how on their designs (like the Penland jewelry book), which is why I only gave it 3 stars. The book is simply a collection of pictures of jewelry from many artists.
