The fascination with personal adornment is universal. It is a preoccupation that is primal, instinctive, and uniquely human. Looking at Jewelry encompasses a seemingly endless number of ornaments produced across time and in all cultures. The range of materials and techniques used in its construction is extraordinary, even revolutionary, with new substances and methods of fabrication added with every generation. In any given society, master artisans have devoted their time, energy and talent to the fine art of jewellery making, creating some of the most spectacular objects known to humankind. This volume, geared toward jewellery makers, scholars, scientists, students and fashionistas alike, begins with a lively introduction that offers a cultural history of jewellery and its production. The main text provides information on the most common, iconic and culturally significant forms of jewellery and also covers materials, techniques, and manufacturing processes. Containing eighty colour illustrations, this guide will be invaluable to all those wishing to increase their understanding and enjoyment of the art of jewellery. 93 color illustrations.
Susanne Gänsicke is senior conservator and head of antiquities conservation at the J. Paul Getty Museum. Yvonne J. Markowitz is the Rita J. Kaplan and Susan B. Kaplan Curator Emerita of Jewelry at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
