Handmade History : Craftsman Style Jewelry
Jewelry Making and Design By Augustus Foster Rose
Published in 1917, this manual of jewelry making and design is a fascinating and still useful text on design.
Published at the height of the craftsman period, the text offers several examples of borrowing design elements directly from nature, including seahorses, beetles and the very popular hollyhock, and translating them into jewelry design.
