Sustainability is foremost in the minds of many designer-makers at the moment; there has been a surge of environmentally-sustainable developments in the collections shown worldwide. Jewelers are very aware of sustainability issues, as such a large proportion of their traditional materials come from non-sustainable sources (precious stones and metals) and they have traditionally used acids, dyes, and other techniques not renowned for their eco-friendliness. This book will encourage makers to recycle and show how 'pre-loved' or traditionally throw-away materials can provide new inspiration. Includes stunning photos of the work of established and experimental jewelers from around the world.
