There's a new book being published
December 16, 2012
featuring 276 international artists
from almost 40 countries showing more
than 570 pieces of contemporary art jewelry.
It's called, "Jewelbook: International Annual
Their publicity describes it as,
Contemporary jewelry is unquestionably the result of thousands of years of history and research, with present-day jewelers still using the same precious metals and stones as their predecessors, but without ceasing to renovate, reinvent and experiment with materials, techniques and concepts.
Jewelbook is the result of international teamwork, showing contemporary jewelry handcrafted by the world's finest modern jewelry artists.Jewelbook not only illustrates the most innovative works in contemporary jewelry but also offers support to jewelry as a cultural expression of our time and is destined to become an important reference work in this field of art. A tool to make jewelers even more aware of what happens on an international level and to encourage the exchange of ideas and techniques.
I'd say this would make an inviting coffee table book
for guests while supplying a source of
inspiration for jewelry artists.
