Full Description

Jorunn Veiteberg has been wearing jewellery with a passion ever since she was a teenager. Covering nearly 50 years, her collection contains some 550 items, including work by 210 jewellery artists from 30 different countries, some by unknown craftspeople, some even mass-produced. Conventional forms live side by side with experimental objects, and political statements mingle with humorous asides. It is this collection that makes up The Jewellery Box. The book deals with how Veiteberg became a collector, why she focused on art jewellery, and what it can do for us. It’s a personal story, but at the same time the volume is a contribution to the recent history of crafts, one that expands our understanding of jewellery.
