A guide to contemporary work in jewelry for art and industrial arts students and teachers, occupational therapists, professional craftsmen, and hobby workers. Throughout, the emphasis is on the creative instead of the rigid directions and projects common to many other books; on contemporary design rather than on imitative design inspired almost entirely by patterns from nature; on the joy of free execution rather than on mere technical proficiency alone.
With this book, you'll get started at one - with immediate preliminary experience in getting the feel of your material through shaping, sawing, and soldering metal. You'll learn to design by DESIGNING. There are 24 suggested approaches.
There are 1117 items, designs and steps in processes illustrated. Some of the items are by beginners, and some of them are by topnotch professionals - an invaluable source of inspiration.
Some of the artists, designers and schools whose works are shown include Alexander Calder, Salvador Dali, Margaret De Patta, Joseph Drlik, Claire Falkenstein, Fred Farr, Jean Fouquet, Jean Gipp, Virginia Hoffman, Hopi Silvercraft Guild, Hurst and Kingsbury, Hedwig Kohn, Sam and Carol Kramer, Richard Kubala, Gordon C Lawson, Frank Lee, Paul Lobel, Moore Institute of Art, Philip Morton, New Mexico Highlands University, Ohio University, Mary Parker, Violet L.
