Featuring 450 full-color photos and 241 of the world's foremost narrative jewelry makers, this book showcases the best of what today's makers, ranging from newly graduated students to the luminaries of the jewelry world, have to offer us: jewelry that's designed to evoke a range of thoughts and feelings. Do you have a piece of jewelry that offers a story? What story does the jewelry we own or desire tell? Why are you attracted to some pieces, but repelled by others? The answers unfold in this contemporary compendium, also featuring a foreword by jewelry professor and expert Jack Cunningham, PhD, and text by artists Jo Pond and Dauvit Alexander (The Justified Sinner). The makers and images selected for this book are a broad representation of the genre of narrative jewelry, and offer a fascinating look for anyone who wears, collects, or has an interest in jewelry or design.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This book fills in many roles: the sumptuous photographs over 450 and large format make it a coffee-table book par excellence; each maker has a paragraph about them and the writing makes it useful for educators, curators and collectors; it can be read as a text, used to spark discussion, or just browsed and enjoyed. - Jewellery Focus, October 2017.
"Not only does this beautiful book show how jewellery can skillfully be used to tell a story or do more than just be pretty, it shows a way to embrace a wide range of techniques used by skilled international jewellers. Its the kind of book that you want to sit down and read like a novel, but the images distract you with their own little stories. Its a great book, all of the tutors want to steal it off me when I am looking at it, I can tell." Lil Adams 2018
