While truly a pleasure in many respects, Living Jewels is frustrating in two ways. One, no dimensions are given. With necklaces and rings it's not so hard to infer their approximate size. With brooches, like the one on the cover, the reader is clueless: it is about an inch across? Three inches? Five?
Also, photo credits are listed in tiny print at the back in alphabetical order by who provided permission. While many pieces are no doubt in private collections, it would be nice to know which are in museums where the public is able to see them. Surely there was a way this information could have been included on the page without disrupting the overall design. Some of us want to get a closer look if our travels happen to take us where some of these pieces "live"!
i suppose the only limitation that this book might have is if you personally object to the killing of living matter for any purpose, whether it be food, jewelry or any other use. so if that is a factor for you, then this book is probably not for you.
