Editorial Reviews

Review

"Showcase 500 Art Necklaces is a collection of art jewelry, all necklace designs, that works as a kind of book slash gallery exhibit. This book is meant to inspire versus inform. It is packed full of color photographs of finished necklaces that are hand-crafted to an artistic level and not necessarily meant to be worn. Put simply, this is artwork first." -- Tammy Powley, About.com Jewelry Making

"The book is really stunning. The compact size packs quite a punch of art. This book is laid out very much like a gallery exhibit: each spread reminds me of a wall space where similar works of art are hung together, and sometimes the connections are surprising. The pieces range from high-end designer diamonds and gems incorporated into meticulously detailed settings to found object creations that look like experiments gone wild. The materials, colors, patterns and styles are fantastic and completely inspiring. A book like this helps me envision what is possible." -- Erin Prais-Hintz

"These tomes hold the work of hundreds of art jewelers whose names the future may not recall, but whose work and passion are evident in these pages. This volume is an excellent example of the vast array of styles and techniques that make up the Art Jewelry movement." -- Robyn Hawk

“A wonderland of possibilities....Page after page of inspiration.” —American Craft magazine

Drool... More inspiration than one person can probably implement, which is a good thing.

My husband has several of the 500 series books. He is a jeweler and teaches jewelry classes; he uses books to let his advance-level students find projects that they would like to attempt. Wonderful!

The photography, the curating/jurying, the layouts, all are beautiful. All materials are identified for each piece. There are some gorgeous works of art in this book. A keeper for the art library. Highly recommend. There are lots of pics from this book that are becoming very popular on Pinterest. Seek and ye shall find on Pinterest.

The necklaces shown here are very unusual, using a variety of materials, not usually incorporated into classic designs. The pictures are both wonderful and playful. If you have a curiousity about the way designers think and their designing methods, pick up a copy of this book!
