Edited by Nicolas Estrada, New Brooches focuses on brooches within an exploration of current trends in contemporary jewellery. With a selection of over 400 jewelry artists' creations from all over the world, this volume is the most comprehensive compilation on the subject.
A must-have for any professional or student of jewellery or fashion design, this work shows the versatile and dynamic nature of brooches and the many and varied materials and forms that they involve. Needing only a pin to secure it to the wearer's garment, this ornament is essentially a jewellery artist’s blank canvas that invites endless creativity and offers more freedom of expression than any other form of jewellery.
The brooch has continued to evolve and be reinterpreted, and it is playing a critical role in the development of new jewellery as a platform for artistic expression. Following the success of Promopress's New Rings, New Earrings, and New Necklaces, New Brooches represents a valuable contribution to this series. It is an inspirational compendium of the most innovative creations in today's jewellery design.
