The fascination with personal adornment is universal. It is a preoccupation that is primal, instinctive and uniquely human. Jewelry encompasses a seemingly endless number of ornaments produced across time and in all cultures. The range of materials and techniques used in its construction are extraordinary, even revolutionary, with new substances and methods of fabrication added with every generation. In any given society, master artisans have devoted their time, energy and talent to the fine art of jewelry making, creating some of the most spectacular objects known to humankind. This volume, geared toward jewelry makers, scholars, scientists, students and fashionistas alike, begins with a lively introduction that offers a cultural history of jewelry and its production. The main text provides information on the most common, iconic and culturally significant forms of jewelry and also covers materials, techniques and manufacturing processes. Containing eighty colour illustrations, this guide will be invaluable to all those wishing to increase their understanding and enjoyment of the art of jewelry.
