Adorn: New Jewellery (out of print)
This showcase of new jewellery offers a global view of exciting work from 200 cutting-edge jewellery designers. Highlighting the diverse forms that contemporary jewellery takes, from simple wedding or commitment rings, to elaborate body jewellery that blurs the boundaries between art and adornment, to catwalk jewellery specially commissioned for couture collections, "Adorn" includes pieces made using the latest industrial technologies and processes, as well as more traditional methods and materials. Because most jewellers' work crosses themes, categories and styles, and is produced using a variety of techniques, the chapters are arranged by type of jewellery and each designer may feature in a number of chapters. In this way, from headpiece to toe ring, the book takes the reader on a visual journey around the body and provides a rich source of inspiration for anyone looking to design, commission or buy their own jewellery.
