Virtually impossible to put down. A 'feast for the eyes'...for any art collector or connoisseur of the jeweler's art. The works pictured are breathtaking in their craftsmanship, their ingenuity, and their astonishing use of color. Each image is clear and crisp, as if you could touch the object. This is a book to return to again and again, a book to treasure. It is a deeply satisfying opportunity to examine, close up, a noteworthy collection.-- (01/31/2018)
