Jewellery Design and Development takes a unique approach to understanding these processes, by exploring the works of seventeen innovative jewellers from around the world, and examining the different ways in which they generate and develop their ideas. Tracking all the stages from initial concepts through to finished pieces, the author analyses each individual maker's personal style and methodology, using illustrated examples and interviews with the designers themselves. No other book provides this kind of insight into the creative processes involved in jewellery making, from the materials used to the narratives at play behind a completed piece, whether conventional or subversive.

Jewellery Design and Development is a fascinating and in-depth study of the world of jewellery making today, and will be of interest to professional jewellers and designers, as well as anyone with an interest in contemporary jewellery.
