Synopsis: The focus of this book is on the side of the brooch that usually isn't noticed: the reverse. When we encounter an attractive piece of jewelry, our instinct is to admire the front, but when we turn it around, it often reveals a secret. The author lets us in on that secret, typically only shared between the maker and the wearer. Clever brooch makers often adorn the back with items meant to complement the front, or the backside may have a unique, intricate design all its own. When you flip a brooch over in your hand you may find a surprise message, a hidden pattern, or even an unlikely foreign implement. The result is a better understanding of the artist's abilities and personality. Now, you can judge for yourself what the 128 artists respresented in this volume had in mind, and, if you are a jewelry maker, you may be inspired to leave your own unique mark.

About the Author: Lorena grew up in Mexico and the time she spent there, amongst beautiful Mexican Folk Art, shows in the amazing body of work. Each of Lorena's intriguing creations seems to hold an untold secret that keeps you guessing its true meaning with each glance. She has become a very active and recognized artist in wearable metal clay art. Her work has been featured in several books and publications and countless online articles and industry websites. Lorena creates her unique jewelry with silver, copper, and bronze; all designs start with one-of-a-kind handcrafted pieces produced at her studio in San Antonio, Texas.
