[66] A Modern Method of Creating Enameled Filigree Jewelry
After making jewelry and doing lapidary work for twenty-five years, I began looking for another type of jewelry making which would be a bit different. While on a visit to the Walter’s Art Gallery in Baltimore I became fascinated with the filigree work done by the ancient Etruscans, Greeks and Mesopotasians. (2003)

[586] Book Review - 20th Century Jewelry, The Complete Sourcebook
John Peacock is a fashion designer's best friend. Over the years, this former BBC costume designer has published a dozen easy-to-use sourcebooks covering 40 centuries of fashion, making them the most comprehensive record of fashion and accessories ever published. Peacock has finally compiled a sourcebook for jewelers as well as designers, and filled its oversized pages with color drawings of representative pieces of jewelry from 1900 to 2000. The presentation is unique and somewhat startling because, instead of glossy photographs of luscious jewelry, each page contains 20 different color drawings, grouped by item and dated. It took years of research using photographs, paintings, and the jewelry itself to produce these 1,500 highly detailed drawings..... (2005)
