9781911282525
Simply Brilliant presents 110 pieces by 50 leading makers of jewelry in the 1960s and '70s, all of which come for the private collection of Kimberly Klosterman. Most, if not all, of the individual makers of this era thought of themselves as artists first, jewelers second, and this magnificent new volume is full of stunning one of a kind pieces which reflect the inventive, ground-breaking attitudes of the era. The book explores the 1961 Goldsmiths Hall exhibition in London and its influence on contemporary jewelry designers such as John Donald, Arthur King, Andrew Grima and Gilbert Albert. The 1961 exhibition brought a new direction in jewelry design to the fore, influencing others--including the major jewelry houses such as Cartier, Bulgari, Chopard and Van Cleef and Arpels--paving the way for an international movement in fashion and design. These jewelry designers created unique pieces, often for individual clients, using non-traditional materials and unusual forms.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Cynthia AmnéusPublisher: GilesPublished: 10/13/2020ISBN: 9781911282525Pages: 256Weight: 3.80lbsSize: 10.80h x 9.80w x 1.10d
