Sustainability is foremost in the minds of many designer-makers at the moment and there is a growing concern, as jewellers are increasingly aware of the proportion of traditional materials that originate from non-sustainable sources (precious stones and metals). Traditionally used acids, dyes, and other techniques are not renowned for their eco-friendliness. This book encourages 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 jewellers from around the world.
