Description

By Suzanne Ramljak

Studio jewelry dissolves the modern distinction between decorative and fine arts. The 60 pieces in this lively volume, collected by Donna Schneier and donated to The Metropolitan Museum of Art, were created primarily from the early 1960s to the present day and show a fluid engagement with various traditions in jewelry making— from old masterworks to contemporary pieces—as well as various twentieth-century art movements such as Conceptual art, Arte Povera, and Surrealism.

Unique by Design draws attention to these dazzling small works of art, most of which have never before been published. Although these pieces incorporate a variety of materials, ranging from the precious to the ordinary, they share some common traits that reflect the collector’s tastes: wit, elegance, fantasy, imagination, social observation, and technical virtuosity. Above all, these works were made to be worn and to create a dynamic engagement with a body.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great art to wear! I had the good fortune to visit the exhibit of Contemporary Jewelry at the Metropolitan Museum in June, and was blown away by the creativity of the jewelry-art. I am so pleased the book on the collection was available, and I ordered it immediately on my return home.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from disapponted The pictures were great and the jewelry funky. I just didn't find it as inspiring as I had hoped. If I had been able to flip through more pages before ordering that would have helped me decide if it was worth it. As it was, I bought it on sale and due to shipping costs to send it back decided I would keep it and see if a jeweler friend might want it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Quality & Excellent Color Quality For my sister who's a jewelry designer and creator of many years. Always nice for an artist to review pieces, designs, quality of those others of similar 'work'. Very good writing regarding the contents and one desires to reach into the photos to touch, the quality is so superb.
