Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is generously spread with an array of high glamour Jewellery designs and drawing styles. The back stories of the Designers & their conceptual processes are interesting too. The book features Jewellery Designers such as Victoire de Castellane for Dior & Paloma Picasso for Tiffany and is divided into Categories of Inspiration (Civilisations / The Natural World / Art & Architecture / Culture & Literature / The Material World / History & Symbolism). It is a beautiful book. The only criticism I would make, is that there is no Instructional element to this book, like the title would suggest. If you already have drawing skills, this is a nice reference on how to "style" your drawings up a bit. But not useful if you need to know how to draw 3D objects in the first place.

For someone who makes, and wants to design jewelry , this book is a must have. So many ideas, and so many designs that can be used is a multitude of ways. It's a treasure.

The book shows you how the master jewelers design their jewelry -- inspirited by nature, by animals, by fashions, etc.
I like the big book and large pictures. unlike some other artbooks, you can really exam the details for the master pieces.
