Jewellery and glass enter on a symbiosis. Comprising 60 objects by artists from around the world who deliberately use glass in jewellery, this is the first survey of its kind. The jewellery shown here is stunningly experimental, revealing an extraordinarily non-conformist take on jewellery as such: it ranges from reticent to histrionic. Every work in the book celebrates the enigmatic qualities, sensuosness, colour and reflecting properties of glass. The use of borosilicate glass has made some objects special indeed: borosilicate glass makes it possible to use exceptionally thin yet durable elements in a composition whereas dichroic glass, which changes colour according to the direction of the incident light, produces intense colour effects. In other objects, novelty results from the innovative use of traditional glassworking processes.
