This book is kind of part of a series by Lark (500 ________). These books have served me and many people I know as a source of Inspiration. They show one of a kind, hand made pieces by artists from all over the world. Some of the pieces also have descriptions from the artist about what inspired the piece or the ideas behind it. In a classroom, students could look at these books for ideas and see where other artists take their ideas from.

1000 rings contains creative creations for rings made 1 of a kind by various popular artists. Rings, inluding non-traditional materials such as pencils, were used in various creations. This book would be a good resource for this book-set to give students various ideas for making rings, and to step out of the box.
This was my first introduction to art jewelry. All the work is beautiful, but some of it makes you think and question the role of jewelry in our society and in the art world. A great collection of what is happening on the contemporary metals world.
I love this book, I love lots of the books from this series. But since I am a metalsmith and concentrate on rings this book is so inspiring.

This is an excellent jewelery design book! It includes mixed media, found objects, textiles and, of course, metals.

This book contains an amazing collection of "jewelry as sculpture" that is both beautiful and inspiring.
One of the best in the 500 series, great inspiration for metalworkers on any education level.
I got this for christmas in 2006, and I'm always inspired thumbing through it.
