Six pages of the new Jewelry Design book published by daab feature some of Kathy’s more unusual recent work. The book is a stunning compendium of international jewelry design, a perfect coffee table book for inspiration.
"Jewelry is commonly perceived as a beautiful piece of wearable art: stand-alone, sculptural, and aloof. However, in order to understand contemporary jewelry design, we need to view the work as we would the product of any design field: as conceptual projects, as material studies, as social commentaries, and as connections to the past.
The various creations by international designers presented in this book give us an outline on current trends and developments in the field of jewelry. Pictures as well as information on crafting techniques and materials underline the infinite creative potential of jewelry design. An index with contact information is enclosed."
