"This book ... is like walking into a beautifully curated museum show and looking at piece after piece after piece or amazing silver jewelry. There are many pieces where the silver looks like silver. There are just as many others ... where it looks like concrete, ashes, sand, charcoal and other materials. This is the type of book that makes me think about boundaries and why sometimes I set them where I do. This book shows you that there are people who create without fearfulness about how it will be accepted, what people will think. If your artistic spirit would be enriched by walking through a beautiful and bold show of 500 silver jewelry designs, this book brings it to your home." - Charlene Sevier

Although this is not my favorite "500" book, I did enjoy it and found lots of inspiration in it.
This is also not an instructional guide and it is often difficult to see how the piece was made, but there are a lot of pieces that have provided inspiration for my own jewelry. The presentation and photography are absolutely outstanding, making this a delight to page through for enjoyment and possible ideas.
Note: I revived a review copy from the publisher, but this in no way reflects my rating.

I appreciate the problem with design work but after more than 30 years of teaching I see this book as a collection of effort only. Too bad. Read morePublished on August 1, 2013 by Christian&Kathy Schlegl
This book was a disappointment and pales other 500 series books. Most of the work featured is extremely abstract and not appealing.Published on May 5, 2013 by Zenia810
The cover image leads you to believe that the contents revel in the beauty of this metal. Not so fast! Read morePublished on January 1, 2012 by Nora Sline
