Exquisite, exciting, enameled jewelry - powdered glass fused onto metal to create gorgeous, delicate color and detail, beautiful enough to be considered art. Here is the first book to focus exclusively on enameled jewelry, an integral, important, and innovative part of American and European jewelry design at the turn of the 20th century. Attention is given to significant developments in enameling techniques and to the symbolism found in Victorian, Art Nouveau, and Arts and Crafts jewelry design during the nineteenth century and later Edwardian and Art Deco styles. Important jewelry manufacturers such as Krementz and Meyle and Mayer are included as well as more modern designers such as David Andersen and Margo de Taxco. Attention is given to the highly collectible Newark, New Jersey, and New York enamels that are often dated c. 1900. Each chapter includes values for many of the pieces illustrated. Over 450 stunning color photographs illustrate this comprehensive volume. This is an important reference for jewelry designers, historians, and collectors.
