About this title

Synopsis:

  • The first in-depth monograph of leading American jeweler Linda MacNeil
  • Presenting MacNeil's most significant pieces
  • Fully illustrated and containing an exhibition history, select bibliography, and list of museum collections where MacNeil's work can be found
  • Accompanies a retrospective exhibition organized by guest curator Davira S. Taragin for the Museum of Glass, Tacoma, Washington
Linda MacNeil: Jewels of Glass is the first in-depth monograph to explore the development of leading American jeweler Linda MacNeil's jewelry and her contribution to late twentieth- and twenty-first century jewelry.
MacNeil has inserted her voice into contemporary American jewelry as an innovator transforming glass into proxies for precious gemstones. She and her work have straddled the fields of Studio Glass and Studio Jewelry. A pioneer over her forty-and-counting-year career, she has united glass with metal and, recently, with precious gems. Exploring materiality and methodology, she uses historical precedent as a jumping off point to make stunning, wearable jewelry.

This scholarly study presents approximately fifty of MacNeil's most significant pieces. Davira S. Taragin's essay interweaves MacNeil's biography with discussions of the development of her aesthetic. Noted jewelry historian Ursula Ilse-Neuman contextualizes MacNeil's achievement within the art jewelry movement in general and the use of glass in jewelry over the centuries.
