Описание: High jewellery has entered the 21st century with a spring in its step. Design has been as diverse as it has been innovative. The technical advances of the '90s and the new materials being used by this exuberant group of independent jewellers have helped pave the way to breaking down preconceived ideas of high jewellery. Some enjoy the adventure of finding the rarest of gemstones that speak to them, others seek to tell a tale or relay a secret message to the wearer and thus the onlooker. They are artists, engineers and adventurers; and, above all, they are passionate about their world, using only the best workmanship wherever it is to be found.
From the great JAR, to James de Givenchy and Nicholas Varney in the West, and Michelle Ong, Wallace Chan and Bhagat in the East, 21st-Century Jewellery Designers: An Inspired Style is an exploration into the designers' worlds. Interviews reveal the designers' inspirations and passions, their signature materials, designing processes, and how their personalities influence their designs.
Описание: Long since regarded as an inessential object that simply adds to the beauty, convenience or effectiveness of an outfit, accessories are now considered key items in a fashion collection and as stand-alone pieces worthy of our undivided attention. Basics Fashion Design 09: Designing Accessories is filled with important information that any designer will need to know, examining four key items from concept to production: the bag, footwear, jewellery and millinery. The key accessories are dissected to clearly display the core components, giving a clear view of how each connects. The design process is explored by looking at creative product development, from gathering research to generating ideas into key products, construction techniques and the essential tools of the trade used in modern accessories design. 2D pattern and 3D modelling techniques are described in detail with explanations of traditional and rapid prototyping tools in use today. Bespoke and commercial production is examined and creative solutions to technical challenges are presented. Designing Accessories also explores specialist finishing techniques, such as hand-finishing and machine embellishment and contains descriptions of contemporary techniques that break new boundaries in accessories design. A detailed explanation of small accessories, essential to the accessories designer, will broaden the reader's knowledge and provide them with the dexterity of skills to enter the fashion industry. This title is filled with images of beautiful accessories to inspire young designers. It is essential reading for fashion students and all those interested in accessories design. The book also includes a whole chapter on small accessories (eyewear, scarves, ties, wristwatches, belts and gloves).
Описание: John Clarke has travelled widely in the area and his fascinating text discusses the connection of jewellery to religion and folk beliefs and its rich and many-layered symbolism. Drawing together historical texts and the oral traditions of living craftsmen, he gives a picture of how goldsmiths and jewellers operated in the past and today, and how jewellery was worn then and now. The vibrant combination of gold and silver with turquoise, coral, amber and pearls has an extraordinary visual impact and is valued as much for its religious and talismanic associations as for adornment. This beautifully illustrated book contains newly commissioned photography and draws on the finest examples from the V&A and other British collections, both public and private. It brings into the spotlight one of the richest decorative traditions of the world, and one increasingly appreciated and emulated in the west. Its attractive, accessible format will ensure its appeal to a wide range of markets, from fashion and travel to collecting and design.

Описание: A Mirror to the Age. The `age of Victoria` is taken in its widest sense to encompass jewellery made throughout Europe and America, displayed at the great international exhibitions and distributed through foreign trade, illustrated publications and a burgeoning tourist industry. Throughout, links with other disciplines will provide both the specialist and the non-specialist with the information to understand how jewellery permeated all walks and conditions of life in the 19th century.
Описание: In Italy there has always been a tradition of making jewellery from semi-precious metal, as copies or prototypes of fine jewellery pieces. 'Designed for Fashion: Italian Jewellery from 1950' moves chronologically through the last 100 years, with pieces from the beginning of the 20th century, through to the years spent under fascist rule, when pieces had to be strictly made with local material such as wood, cork, straw, venetian glass and coral. The 50s and 60s allowed for the very first big names in fashion jewellery to arise: Giuliano Fratti, Emma Caimi Pellini, Coppola e Toppo, Luciana de Reutern, Canesi, Ornella... The book reserves a special place for an important phenomenon that took place in Milan at the end of the 1970s - 'Made in Italy' - when Italian fashion entered - and dominated - the international scene, and Italian designers such as Armani, Versace, Ferre, Moschino and Prada found incredible success all over the world. Throughout the eighties and nineties, and well into the year 2000 further names in fashion jewellery were pushed to the fore: Ugo Correani, Sharra Pagano, Carlo Zini, Angela Caputi, Maria Calderara, Giorgio Vigna, Fabio Cammarata, Emilio Cressoni, Robert Tomas, Irene Moret, Silvia Beccaria, among others. The final section of the book is devoted to new talents, selecting ten designers whose jewels are particularly interesting and innovative. This section also contains lists of the major museums, galleries, schools and magazines in Europe that are dedicated to contemporary jewellery, illustrating that the line dividing the contemporary artist's studio jewellery from contemporary fashion jewellery is becoming more and more difficult to define. 'Designed for Fashion: Italian Jewellery from 1950' applies special focus to the most important, interesting pieces, through both period images taken from exclusive fashion magazines, and through stunning photographs of actual pieces, resulting in almost 400 illustrations. Famous houses that the jewellery was made for include: Bijoux Bozart, Biki, Carlo Zini, Chanel, Chloe, Coppla E Toppo, Edoardo Saronni, Emilio Pucci, Etro, Fiorucci, Flos Ad Florem, Gianfranco Ferre, Giorgio Armani, Giuliano Fratti, Irene Galitzine, Karl Lagerfeld, Luciana De Reutern, Marni, Missoni, Misterfox, Moschino, Prada, Roberto Capucci, Schiaparelli, Sharra Pagano, Ugo Correani, Unger, Valentino, Versace.
