MacNeil has inserted her voice into contemporary American jewellery as an innovator transforming glass into proxies for precious gemstones. She and her work have straddled the fields of Studio Glass and Studio Jewellery. A pioneer over her forty-and-counting-year career, she has united glass with metal and, recently, with precious gems. Exploring materiality and methodology, she uses historical precedent as a jumping off point to make stunning, wearable jewellery.

This scholarly study presents approximately fifty of MacNeil’s most significant pieces. Essays interweave her biography with discussions of the development of her aesthetic and contextualise MacNeil’s achievement within the art jewellery movement in general and the use of glass in jewellery over the centuries.

The American Craft Council designated this book as one of the Noteworthy Craft Books in 2017!

With essays by curator Davira S. Taragin and noted jewellery historian Ursula Ilse-Neuman.
