Art Jewelry Today 3

Two years ago, I submitted my images for Art Jewelry Today 3 . I almost forgot that I applied for it. The book was published in 2011. Recently, I found the book at the RISD library and saw my images in the book. : ) So I wanted to share them with you all.

This Art Jewelry Today 3 is the overview of the wearable artwork created by more than one hundred of today’s top art jewelers. The artists provide discussions of their work along with examples of their creativity. Hundreds of vibrant color photographs display one-of-a-kind works of art, including necklaces, brooches, bracelets, rings, and earrings in gold, silver, mixed metals, glass, and enamels, with found objects and innovative designs. In a departure from the previous volumes, the artists are arranged alphabetically so readers may see the entire scope of their work on the page together.

The author, Jeffrey B. Snyder, has been writing about decorative arts for over a decade. Schiffer Publishing, Ltd. is based in Atglen, PA on the Schiffer Book Farm. The company is known for publishing high quality Antique, Arts, Architecture, Lifestyle, and Military History books, as well as a successful line of children and ghost books.
