Modernist Jewelry, it seems as though there has never been enough information. Christie Romero's Warman Jewelry and Messengers of Modernism were great aids. The Author's online Modern Silver Magazine has provided insightful information on dozens of Modernist artists, as as her webpage.

Now we have the most complete source of information available anywhere. Studying the art, the histories, the influences, and especially the artists has finally become possible from this scholarly work. The photography is top-notch, the values are reasonable, timely, and well researched, and the writing is clear and concise. All-in-all it is simply a Masterpiece!

Marbeth has the unique combination of an artistic eye, personal research knowledge and market experience that makes this book such a treasure. If you love Modernist Jewelry, this book will re-kindle your passion... and if you are not familiar with it, this book will light your fire! As a dealer and collector, I own hundreds of books on jewelry, and this is one of my top-10 favorites. Buy it now and enjoy it for years to come.

Finally, we have a compendium of history, facts, photos, and values. Marbeth Schon has done the research for us, and now we can put this wonderful information to work. For collectors and dealers, this is a must have work of beauty and scholarship. The organization makes it a valuable reference source, while the photographs make it an invaluable reflection on the 'Art Movement' of 'American Modernism'.

From the well known to the obscure 'Modernist Artists', their works and their place in history has now been beautifully documented by this wonderful research author.

I am a collector of American mid-century jewelry and this is the most informative book to date! Marbeth Schon is an authority on topic and has generously shared her knowledge with us. View of signatures of artist in back of book is also a great reference!

Format: Hardcover
Up until a few years ago, I knew next to nothing about Amercian jewelry modernists, yet I have shared their passion for manipulating metal for decades! My then limited knowledge changed when I received this fabulous book. Ms Schon's extensive knowledge of these modernist jewelry makers' work and bios, makes this reader and jewelry maker feel as if the Modernists have come to life! This book is a must for collectors of vintage and contemporary Made in USA signed studio jewelry. What a joy to own this book. Buy it, own it and enjoy it for decades ahead!
