Craft an incredible assortment of fine jewelry--each a designer original. The impressive "gems" from innovative, contemporary artisans are as magnificent as anything displayed in a gallery, but aren't meant to languish in a case. Engraving, casting, fabricating, forging, soldering, and enameling--the techniques are varied and creative, just like the projects. Pins, earrings, rings, a necklace, a pendant, a bangle, and a cuff bracelet of extraordinary beauty and style make exceptional accessories that elevate any outfit. Finally, the sky's the limit when it comes to your own designs--draw inspiration from fascinating profiles of the artists and their careers, as well as close-up color photographs of additional pieces from their collections. Compiled by an international award-winning jewelry maker, these outstanding examples will fill you with a passion for working with precious metals.
