Jewelry Design Challenge

If you’re into jewelry (and obviously you are or you wouldn’t be reading this blog!), you will enjoy one of Lark publications latest efforts, “Jewelry Design Challenge by Linda Kopp.  In this book, thirty well-known metalsmiths and jewelry artists  from around the country were given packages containing  ten identical materials (copper and sterling silver sheet, sterling tubing, copper washers, leather cord, copper and sterling wire, fine silver mesh, and several black and white pearls) and asked to create a piece using as many of the provided materials as they wished, and as an aside, they were allowed to use one extra material, a “wild card” so to speak, of their choice that was not provided in the kit.  What a fun concept!  The diversity of the finished projects was amazing.  This book proved to be very entertaining and insightful and I highly recommend it to anyone who has an appreciation of one-of-a-kind and limited edition art jewelry.
