1 Review
This unique volume is the first definitive study of contemporary Israeli studio jewellery. During the past twenty years, design historians, writers and professionals in the metals field have become increasingly aware of developments in contemporary jewellery in Israel, largely due to the work of four artists: Bianca Eshel-Gershuni, Vered Kaminski, Esther Knobel, and Deganit Stern Schocken. Women's Tales examines their work in the context of both American and European art movements and provides a unique retrospective of each artist's oeuvre as well as an overall appraisal of the Israeli jewellery aesthetic in the context of broader international artistic developments.
