3.0 out of 5 stars Misleading title, 13 July 2010

This review is from: Jewellery Design Handbook (Paperback)
I have to agree with the previous review. This book was a bit of a disappointment. I was expecting jewellery design to be shown throughout the various stages of design development and through to a final image of the pieces made - perhaps with techniques used - it is after all called, "jewellery design HANDBOOK".. Some of the pages contain sketches and drawings, some have sort of watercolour montages with the finished work on the following pages - but its says nothing about the process or concept involved. There is some interesting work - but I think this book would have been better with a different title - more along the lines of "conceptual jewellery design showcase" - giving it a more accurate title would have avoided some disappointment perhaps.. It is more of a coffee table book of conceptual (quite "european") type jewellery with random sketches and scribbles included - and a very brief statement from the artists (BRIEF and not really about the work)Its more experimental work.
It's a nice book to have if your a collector of jewellery books - but its not a jewellery design HAND-BOOK.... The format and book itself is nice - it's about 2" thick and a bit squarer than a paperback novel.
I think some people will really love this book and some will not - but more might be disappointed because of the misleading title. If you expect it to be a gallery book of conceptual experimental and minimalist work, then you might be happier with your purchase. :)
