Jewelry Art..When experimentation has a purpose

When jewelry is perceived as more than just wearable art, stand-alone, sculptural and aloof. In order to completely understand contemporary jewelry design, one should understand the meaning of art experimentation. From conceptual projects, material studies, past inspirations and social commentaries are the what every design project goes through.

The various creations by international designers presented in this book gives 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.
