For 500 years, the world's greatest makers of costume jewelry
have hidden, anonymous, in the heart of Europe: Gablonz, Bohemia. This
groundbreaking, beautiful book exposes the jewels, craftsmanship,
technological development, and history of Bohemia. Almost 400 gorgeous
color photographs illustrate the area's artistry, its most significant
designers and manufacturers and their contributions to the art of
jewelry, button, and bead making. Bohemian glass dynasties lasted for
centuries, until the middle of the 20th century, when the entire
community of German-stock craftsmen was expelled from the area in the
turbulence of World War II. Though Gablonz will forever feel the loss of
these great craftsmen, their artistry has been meticulously researched
and documented by Sibylle Jargstorf for this book.
