I just recieved my copy of the new Lark Book: 500 Silver Jewelry Designs in the mail! This book contains an image of a belt buckle I created in grad school-part of the series below-and was chosen by juror Talya Baharal.
The image below is included in the book. I am so excited to be a part of this, and have been glued to the pages as this book contains silver designs that are unexpected and manipulate the material (silver) sometimes beyond recognition. Its a page turner, and will be available in stores very soon!
