'Art Jewelry Today 3'
by Jeffrey B. Snyder
Melody Armstrong is included in this hardcover publication.
This is an 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. These artists have created small sculptures that adorn the body and draw the eye. This is the third book in a series designed to provide readers with new items by artists they have come to know and an introduction to artists not previously seen in print.
Jeffrey B. Snyder has been writing about decorative arts for over a decade.
