A Daab jewelry design book, this should be good (as of this writing it's not yet released). See the slideshow on the Daab website for sample pages. Jewelry Design features contemporary jewelry designers from all around the world, the "book is an extensive presentation of individual designs, whose development and realization has been significantly influenced by today's digital technology." Most interesting is the exploration of rapid prototyping and manufacturing techniques combined with non-traditional materials such as glass, plastic, and rubber. Often referred to as wearable art, "jewelry easily outlives generations without suffering a loss in value - another distinctive characteristic. More than anything, jewelry is always a status symbol, allowing distancing and identifying people of different social backgrounds, the exclusivity being the skillfully combined material and shape. Contemporary jewelry designers accommodate these complex functions, creating distinctive and beautiful unique items - not only for the people of today, but also for tomorrow's generation." Hardcover, 384 pages, well illustrated with text in english, german, french, spanish and italian, pre-order $37.77 at Amazon.
