It is always exciting to have work published in a book. As we live in an increasingly paperless word you might think the thrill of seeing your name in print under an image of your work would diminish over time but not for me! Everyone can post pictures online but having my work chosen for publication alongside artists I admire is a thrill I may never get over. I just got my copy of New Rings by Nicolas Estrada in the mail today and feel honored to have my work published in such impressive company!
The author is a jeweller which made his selections for the book both informed and interesting. Have a look at his work here: http://www.amarillojoyas.com/index_e.html
and you can buy the book here: http://www.amazon.com/New-Rings-Designs-Around-World/dp/0500289336
If you are a jeweller Nicolas is working on his next book which will focus on earrings. You can find the call for entry on his website as well as facebook.
