This showcase of new jewelry offers a global view of exciting work from nearly 200 cutting-edge jewelry designers. It highlights the diverse forms that contemporary jewelry takes, from simple wedding or commitment rings, to elaborate body jewelry that blurs the boundaries between art and adornment, to catwalk jewelry specially commissioned for couture collections.
Adorn includes pieces made using the latest industrial technologies and processes, as well as more traditional methods and materials. Because most jewelers' work crosses themes, categories, and styles, and is producedusing a variety of techniques, the chapters are arranged by type of jewelry and each designer may feature in a number of chapters. In this way, from headpiece to toe ring, the book takes the reader on a visual journey around the body and provides a rich source of inspiration for anyone looking to design, commission, or buy their own jewelry.
