What a book! Just when you think you know our American Jewelry Modernists, Marbeth gives us her second book and so much more to appreciate. Her indepth knowledge of their lives and the delish jewelry photography makes one wish we owned them all. For decades without knowing about these Marvy Modernists, I have shared their passion for manipulating metal in my own primitive manner, never knowing that one day they would be introduced to me and their work would bring me such joy in the form of Marbeth's Modernist Movement Jewelry books. Collectors of vintage and contemporary Made in USA signed studio jewelry this, Ms Schon's second, is a must addition to any jewelry book library! Own it and enjoy!

Summarizing my other review would seem redundant so I refer to it. We are all in her debt for the pioneering effort and scholarship. Her untimely death a great loss.Stephen H. Borkowski, ChairmanProvincetown Historical Commission
