The Arts and Crafts era is without a doubt one of the best periods in jewellery history.This really was the period were people used there own creative instincts,were being original,true to the craft and not subscribing to a mass produced fashion/style e.g art nouveau,etc etc.It was also the forefather of modern jewellery design.This book is the prized favourite in my collection of jewellery books,before I bought it I had read it in the library countless times and it can be reread again and again.The best part about it was that it referenced so many obscure and unknown designers and jewellers,who have not been give due credit for the amazing work they produced.It is beautifully illustrated and ispirational and is interesting because most 'jewellery history' books only concentrate on the movement itself and feature traditional jewellers who became part of that movement.This is the first book Ive read were most of the jewellers are artists or creative groups making jewellery.Alot of the information in the book is impossible to find even online!I've looked.Very well done and researched, worth every cent.Also recommend Artists' Jewellery - Pre-Raphaelite to Arts and Crafts; by Geoffrey munn if you love this era.Though this book is the better of the two, but both are invaluable.
