Highlighting recent trends in jewelry design that reflect a revival in the use of traditional materials and a rejection of the minimalist aesthetic dominant in the field since the 1960s, this catalogue presents good reproductions of 46 necklaces, earrings, brooches and other works by 14 European and American artists whose highly personal creations range from architectonic objects to allusive organic works and baroque figurative compositions. Two introductory essays discuss the featured artists' works and comment on the connections between the new expressiveness of jewelry design and developments in the fine arts and architecture.
