Jewel Book. International Annual of Contemporary Jewel Art 12|13

Contemporary jewelry is unquestionably the result of thousands of years of history and research, with present-day jewelers still using the same precious metals and stones as their predecessors, but without ceasing to renovate, reinvent and experiment with materials, techniques and concepts.

Jewelbook is the result of international teamwork, showing contemporary jewelry handcrafted by the world’s finest modern jewelry artists. Jewelbook not only wants to show the most innovative works in contemporary jewelry, but also wants to support jewelry as a cultural expression of our time and will hopefully become an important reference work in this field of art. A tool to make jewelers even more aware of what happens on an international level and to encourage the exchange of ideas and techniques.
