Hundredsof color photographs display the work, and there are also portraits ofdesigners at work as well as shots of studios, workshops, and boutiques.Every type of jewelry--earrings and rings, brooches and bracelets,headpieces and necklaces--is represented. Rough stones appear withexquisitely faceted gems; organic forms vie with geometric structures;feathers and leather take their place next to platinum and diamonds.The range of designers is global, and for most of them this is thefirst time their work is appearing in book form.
