Description

The popular "500 series" takes its most fun approach yet, with this diverse collection of contemporary jewellery. This book celebrates the best work being done with this thoroughly modern material. Pieces range from subtle to humorous and even recycled; using materials such as sunglass lenses! The popular "500 Series" takes its hippest, most fun approach yet, with an intoxicatingly vibrant and technically diverse collection of contemporary jewellery. Juror Susan Kasson Sloan has put together a groundbreaking survey of the best work being done with this thoroughly modern material. Every page offers some delightful items, with pieces that stretch from the subtle and sublime to the fantastically humorous. There's jewellery that tells a story and jewellery that cleverly incorporates recycled materials - including sunglass lenses and knitting needles. In true 21st century style, much of the work is being designed and produced with cutting-edge CAD CAM technologies. The extremely talented artists include Jantje Fleischhut; Lisa and Scott Cylinder; Adam Paxon; Felieke van der Leest; Ted Noten; Svenja John; Pavel Herynek; Karin Seufert; and Margaux Lange.
