Description

Jorunn Veiteberg has been wearing jewellery with a passion ever since she was a teenager. Covering nearly 50 years, her collection contains some 550 items, including work by 210 jewellery artists from 30 different countries, some by unknown craftspeople, some even mass-produced. Conventional forms live side by side with experimental objects, and political statements mingle with humorous asides. It is this collection that makes up The Jewellery Box . The book deals with how Veiteberg became a collector, why she focused on art jewellery, and what it can do for us. It's a personal story, but at the same time the volume is a contribution to the recent history of crafts, one that expands our understanding of jewellery.
