'... a continuation of the Publishing House BERESTA of Moscow series of albums on Russian decorative metalwork.
This album draws the reader's attention to the national traditions and contemporary developments in this genre of art.
The album shows that jewellery-making is not just about producing functional pieces of adornment but an independent form of creativity in Russian art as well.
The album also introduces readers to a wide range of contemporary artist-jewellwers, leaders of Russian jewellery.
Any description of the "easel" art of jewellery-making must be based on Russia's best collection of modern jewellery - that of the All-Russian Decorative-Applied and Folk Art Museum (Moscow).'
