Description: This visually stunning guide provides readers with the techniques and advice they need to transform jewelry designs into reality. First it examines the basic elements of design, including size, material, function and color. Next it considers the conceptual style in which the crafter wants to make the piece, such as geometric, figurative, and organic. Each design concept is explored with a discussion of its main characteristics and how they can be conveyed through jewelry design as well as an overview of the essential tools needed to create each design element. Elizabeth Olver teaches jewelry making and design at Central St. Martin's College of Art & Design in London where she earned her BA in jewelry making and design. She holds an MA in the subject from the Royal College of Art in London where she has an Access fellowship. Her work is sold in many stores and galleries including Harrods, Bergdorf Goodman, and Saks Fifth Avenue. She is the author of Jewelry Design: the Artisan's Reference.
