More artists make necklaces than any other form of jewellery and these pieces are among the most exquisite ever created. Selected from over 5,000 entries, they range from unique chokers to artful collars. Some showcase precious metals and gems, while others use more unusual materials, including plastic, wood, paper and glass. They re forged, cast or woven and have surface embellishments that run the gamut from inlay to enamelling. And the variety is simply astonishing: classic bejewelled chains appear next to avant-garde felted wool constructions. Some of the eye-catching, full-colour images feature enlightening quotes from the creators themselves. Jewellers, students, collectors and anyone who loves beautiful objects will treasure this extensive collection the largest of its kind.
