Book Alert: New Brooches
400+ Contemporary Jewellery Designs
New Brooches is the latest edition to the excellent series of books on Contemporary Jewellery by Nicolas Estrada. Following on from New Rings, New Earrings, and New Necklaces; New Brooches explores the current trends in contemporary jewellery through a selection of 441 pieces from all over the world.
The book is a visual feast, with the name of the artist, materials used etc. being the only references available beside each beautifully photographed piece. The absence of text only serves to highlight the beauty and diversity of each offering.
Brooches and Pins can often be the forgotten piece in jewel box, yet they offer endless versatility to the maker and the ability to make a statement by the wearer through the careful selection for this type of adornment. New Brooches reminds us that perhaps a wider selection in our own collections would not be amiss.
172 artists work is represented in this inspirational compendium which will be at home in the professional jeweller’s studio, students study, or simply in the home of lovers of contemporary jewellery. The book is scheduled for publication in May 2018
Nicolas Estrada’s own work is available through the Eclectic Artisans Collective
