Body Jewellery - Donald Willcox

WILLCOX, Donald.
Body Jewellery.
Quarto. 226pp in black boards with silver illustrated dust wrapper. B&w and occasional colour illustrations throughout. London: Pitman Publishing, 1974. A fine copy.

An incredible survey of radical jewellery practices with commentary from the designers themselves. The publication presents designers working with unexpected materials and exploring original approaches to how their ornaments might be worn. The jewels shown are frequently ambitious in scale, shape and construction, with the question of how a piece might move with the body being integral to the design. Endlessly fun examples include edible rings made from caramel, collars made from feathers and aluminium, and pendants assembled from loose thread. An inspiration.
