Review:

"In Jewelry Design Challenge, the task was simple: send 30 top jewelry designers the same nine materials. The designers were to create a new jewelry piece using these materials plus one wild-card option. The results are astonishing. Using ordinary materials like a small sterling square, a copper sheet, tubing, pearls, washers, 20-gauge wire, silver mesh, and leather cord, designers such as Thomas Mann and Robert Dancik set out to make something extraordinary. The variation in designs is truly incredible. If you're looking for imaginative ways to stretch your supplies, pick this up and prepare to be inspired." - Belle Armoire Jewelry "A most intriguing book ... In it, you will find beautiful and unique jewelry projects by 30 distinguished and exciting jewlery artisans. I love seeing how the same materials can lead to such spectactularly diverse outcomes. You will be inspired to make the projects as presented, or perhaps use the ideas that you can mix with wild card elements of your own." - CRESCENDOh blog "Stunning photographs of the projects – which Lark Crafts is known for in their publications – make each jewelry design a delight to view. In addition, there’s a nice section from each artist in their own words on what they thought at the very beginning of this challenge to what they thought of their finished creation. This book can be appreciated by artists working in any type of medium. I found so much inspiration in this book, and yes, actually learned some techniques and had several lightbulb moments for ideas completely unrelated to jewelry design, too. And for jewelry designers? This book is a must-have." - Handmade Spark
