New Directions in Jewellery II is a sourcebook of the most experimental jewellery design today, profiling the work of over 40 makers. Following the success of New Directions in Jewellery, this second volume showcases the latest developments in the field, and includes all new designers and illustrations.

Focusing on contemporary jewellery as an experimental practice, this book further challenges our conception of adornment. Presenting a diverse range of work, grouped in thematic sections - from innovative uses of form and material, to conceptual pieces that critique the cultural and social meanings that have built up around the wearing and manufacture of jewellery - this book documents the progress of an ever-broadening discipline. Exciting emerging talents are profiled alongside established jewellers who continue to test the bounds of their medium. This rich visual survey is introduced by maker and academic Lin Cheung, in an essay that sets out the fascinating and complex relationship between wearer and worn. As a whole, the book stands as a unique archive of contemporary practice and opinion.
