Thirty-six international auteurs working in art jewellery share their creative processes with us. Not only does it entail designing; it also invasively incorporates the act of drawing as an autonomous aesthetic undertaking. A cutting-edge approach presents this hitherto underestimated and neglected medium in a new light.

The multifarious relationships between drawing and jewellery constitute a largely unknown aspect of contemporary studio jewellery. The first publication on this topic therefore focuses on the graphic work by well-known and aspiring artists, opening up new perspectives in its juxtaposition with jewellery objects. Yet it also deals with drawing as an artistic action and as autonomous expression, for within it, the transgression of disciplinary boundaries, its experimental expansion and the pursuit to broaden familiar terrain take root. It accompanies aesthetic reflection and exemplifies the creative back-and-forth and the intimate dialogue with artistic impulses. A groundbreaking work leading to the impressive fusion of applied and fine arts before your very eyes!

With an essay by Beat Wyss.
