Designing Jewelry: Brooches, Bracelets, Necklaces & Accessories
Schiffer Pub., 1994 - Antiques & Collectibles - 175 pages
The process of designing jewelry is carefully explained. This second book follows the tremendous success of the author's book The Art of Jewelry Design: Principles of Design, Rings & Earrings. It has taken the combined talents of three top jewelry designers, including a professor who teaches their skill to jewelry students, to create this beautiful and practical step-by-step format. This volume presents progressive detailed text, sketches and finished drawings of many varieties of brooch, bracelet and necklace designs. From such drawings the manufacturing jeweler can assemble the objects themselves. This book teaches how to create those drawings.
