Push Jewelry - Review and Give Away

Cover of Book- the Arrowhead is a cut out
Lark Craft has published another of the Push series  and like the others, it takes a craft form and lets selected artists push the medium to the limits. A well-designed book, it rests nicely in the hand to read at leisure. I love the brief interviews of the artists that are found on the bottom of pages of the artwork.

The back reads: "Discover 30 leading contemporary jewelers pushing the limits with their innovative designs. Necklaces, brooches, bracelets, and rings in an astounding diversity of materials are included in this thrilling gallery collection compiled by jeweler Arthur Hash. "

Some of the jewelry is actually wearable and I would love to have in my collection, but most I would display as art. A fun book to read and enjoy.

If you would be interested in owning this book, leave me a comment by November 4 - look for the comment area at the end of this post - and a way to contact to you.

I will post the winner a couple of days later. Check back to see if you are a winner-- USA bloggers only.



  1. Hi Nancy,

    I'm a kindred spirit in terms of often wanting to display jewelry as art --- why limit enjoyment to the few times that one wears it (which might not be often in the case of avant garde pieces).

    Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!


  2. Thanks for the comment. Will let you know if your name is the winner.

  3. Sounds and looks like a wonderful book to peruse and then add to my collection. Oooooh! To wear this kind of jewelry! Thanks for the review and for the give away!

  4. Sounds and looks like a wonderful book to add to my collection. Thanks for the review!

  5. The fact that the jewelry is not only wearable but can be seen as art says quite a bit about how the reviewer's creativity takes hold.

  6. The fact that Nancy sees the jewelry as both wearable and as art is a sign of her creativity: there is art/beauty in everything! Would love to have the book.


  7. It does sound like an interesting "coffee table" book to look at page by page. I always like to see different ideas by different mediums to see how they could possibly be adapted to what I'm doing at the moment. I too like to see the bios of new artists.
