Publisher's description: This inspirational book features more than thirty-five master jewelry designers, hailing from across the globe. They represent a wide variety of visions and techniques, from Aida Bergsen's flora- and fauna-inspired designs, and Anabela Chan's exquisitely detailed laser-cut brooches of white gold and platinum with iridescent diamonds and natural gray pearls, to Elie Top's yellow gold spheres that are a feat of mathematical precision and ingenuity. Red-carpet customers and fans include Beyonce, Gwyneth Paltrow, Salma Hayek, Madonna, and Michelle Obama. Design expert Olivier Dupon uses his keen eye for talent and creative flair to select the most exciting of today's high-end jewelry designers working around the globe. Each designer is introduced by a brief biography, and hundreds of images showcase a broad range of "wearable art." Complete with an introduction, a useful glossary, and notes of designers' websites (some work by appointment only), this is the perfect, curated resource for both aficionados and professionals who seek to be in the know concerning the most visionary practitioners working in the field of fine jewelry today.
