Masters of Canadian Jewellery Design

Cora Golden’s latest book may not be about home decor but it’s definitely concerned with Canadian design. The co-author of Design in Canada has turned her attention to master Canadian jewellers in this stunning new e-book, which includes over 220 photographs of remarkable, rarely seen jewellery created between 1950 and 2000. Volume I (of a two-volume series) profiles 25 master Canadian designers and ateliers, and includes photographs of jewellery that has won awards, been collected by museums, or designed for celebrities ranging from Princess Diana to Pope John II. The first book ever about fine jewellery design in Canada celebrates talented artisans who have created some of the world’s most beautiful objects. The book is available for iPad, exclusively through iTunes where you can download a tasty sample section or view screen shots from the beautifully designed project.

On a related note, the Textile Museum of Canada launches a new show today titled Shine featuring fabrics shot through with reflective metals, mirrors, silver and gold thread, sequins, beads, even insect wings. The exhibition showcases an array of exquisite traditional garments and accessories from the Museum’s permanent collections integrated with the work of contemporary artists Carmelo Arnoldin (Toronto), Ghost of a Dream (New York), Rhonda Weppler and Trevor Mahovsky (San Francisco / Toronto).

    Good morning CHRIS, I have always felt Canadian designers have been
    unappreciated in this country. Sherman jewelery has just begun to
    come into its own, and you’d be hard pressed to find a more beautiful
    piece…Gayle of we all have to head south of the border to be noticed *sad*
