This is the first monograph of Arline Fisch, the leading American creator of jewellery as art. It introduces the most important aspects of her work: full-body jewellery which covers the wearer's body like armour; recurrent motifs like fans, feathers and animals and, finally, something that is has employed in making jewellery. Since the early 1970s she has been processing metals, mainly gold and silver, like fabric. This technique, hitherto unknown in the field of jewellery making, has now become part of the standard repertoire of contemporary jewellery designers. More than 100 brilliant colour photographs i illustrate the spectacular work of this innovative artist, reveling the impact jewellery and clothing metal and fabric have on each other in her work.

About the author (2000)

David W. McFadden has published over twenty books of poetry and prose. He lives in Toronto.

From Lifeguard to Sun King is a compelling account of the life of Robert Bell; the founder of the Banana Boat sun care brand and one of America's most innovative entrepreneurs. Bell and his co-author Joe Carlen recount how and why his unique approach to product development, distribution, and marketing led him from the lifeguard chair to the throne of the "Sun King": The man who created the Sun Care industry and built a consumer products empire. However, with all its shocking and frequently humorous anecdotes, this business autobiography is about much more than dollars and cents. It is the story of a man who overcame all obstacles to reach "impossible" dreams while having plenty of laughs along the way!
