A new wave of designers and artisans are creating earrings that push the boundaries of jewelry design. Drawing on unique sources of inspiration to incorporate symbol and meaning, they are redefining the earring as more than a mere ornamental piece.
This book showcases innovative work by jewelry designers from around the world, exploring new trends in design and craftsmanship through style, form and concept. The earrings range from the traditional to more complex, cutting-edge pieces.
All the jewelry featured is notable for its exuberance, the choice of materials or its boldness, whether in terms of dimension, colour or composition. Whatever the materials chosen, it is the imaginative design that shines through.
Nicolas Estrada is a jewelry designer who lives in Barcelona.
