In 2005, Robert Baines, an acclaimed Australian goldsmith known worldwide for his fine artistry - often incorporating ancient goldworking techniques - made an extraordinary gold bracelet that was exhibited in Lisbon's Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga on the occasion of an international symposium. This unusual book, in some ways a fictionand journey of the imagination as alluring as the bracelet itselftells the story of the artefact's imaginary origins to its complex technical fabrication. Above all the book demonstrates the importance of wit and playfulness within the creative art process.
