Publisher's description: This beautifully illustrated book offers the first look back on a storied career by acclaimed jewelry designer Stephen Webster. Setting luxurious reproductions of Webster's stunning creations alongside a charming collection of musings on his life and experience, it is a book like no other, a hybrid that enhances our understanding of Webster's work and the genesis of his artistic vision. Tracing Webster's career back to his earliest days and his enrollment in a jewelry-making course at his local college in Rochester, Kent, the book is full of anecdotes and memories that offer autobiographical insights into the inspirations and influence that have fired his work for decades. The many photographs from his own collection amplify the intimate feel of the book, giving a true behind-the-scenes look at a life devoted to the making of beautiful objects.
