  • Accompanying the exhibition at the Stadtmuseum Simeonstift Trier (DE), from November 27, 2016-Febraury 26, 2017
  • With over 400 images this richly illustrated book is a milestone in 21st century art jewelry presentation
  • Many never before seen photographs including the fascinating 'Remake' project which ties together jewelry and fine art
Beginning with the renaissance of gemstones in jewelry design since the 1970s, Ute Eitzenhöfer, Theo Smeets, Lothar Brügel (ret. 2014) and Eva-Maria Kollischan (since 2014) successfully established the Hochschule Trier in Idar-Oberstein as a creative European jewelry centre. To mark the exhibition in the Stadtmusem Simeonstift in Trier on thirty years of the Gemstone and Jewellery Department, the publication shows an exciting selection of works from the last ten years. Works in creative design and photography accompany diverse approaches that exemplify the contemporary use of a reputedly 'outmoded' raw material. In exploring the aesthetic characteristics of the material and the experimental confrontation with its physical qualities, the gemstone's potential for design comes entirely into its own. Within current discourse it comments ironically, on the one hand, on the unilateral societal ascription as a luxury item; on the other, it functions as a charming and noble object of nature.
