Fantastic Art Gallery Nov. 11 2006
By Stefan Halama - Published on
Format: Paperback
This books shows truly extraordinary creations in an amazing variety of materials and techniques. I own "1000 rings" and "500 brooches" and had therefore equally great expectations for this collection. However, in the order of publication of these books there seems to be a trend towards more emphasis on bizarreness at the cost of esthetics and wearability. Originality should not mean that functionality must be reduced in order to count as "art jewelry". Vice versa it seems that jewelry in traditional designs and techniques is not worth selecting (although very often they require much better skills). Many of the pieces would be more suited to appear in a collection of art sculptures rather than jewelry. Finally, since there was no lack of entries (more than 3000), it is a pity that several nearly identical entries from the same artists were chosen instead of giving a different artist a chance to display his or her work (example: two bracelets made from used coffee filters; the originality is appreciated but one piece would have sufficed to present the idea). I am curious how "500 Necklaces" will turn out.

ok, but worst of the Lark jewelry books March 5 2006
By ratyoke - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I own this book, 500 Brooches, and 1000 Rings. This one is the worst of the 3, I think the other 2 are great. Overall these bracelets are just not that interesting, and there seem to be too many of them, by different artists, that are similar. One artist has 2 pieces in the book that are almost identical. I don't know what went wrong with this book. Was it the jurors? Is it that no one is making interesting bracelets? Is it that they didnt get many submissions?

Its not all bad. Theres some good pieces. If you like the brooches and rings books, you should still get this book, just don't expect too much. Anyway, its pretty cheap on amazon.

worst of the lot Jan. 15 2006
By glaslady - Published on
Format: Paperback
this is a big disappointment, given the other wonderful books in the series. while the designs may be "cutting edge" techniques, too many of them also look either incredibly uncomfortable or impossible to wear - many look almost like art school failed projects.

Are you kidding me? Jan. 19 2012
By Vicki - Published on
Format: Paperback
I appreciate thinking out of the box, but this is ridiculous. It is as if the challenge was to look through a garbage can and come up with materials for a bracelet. Noodles, coffee filters, crayons, birthday candles... nothing practical. Nothing a person would actually wear. The only practical bracelet is on the cover (a little mis-representative of the rest of the material). I was looking for inspiration and got nothing. This is a waste of paper.
