Cold-Connected Jewelry
By Mary Hettsmansperger

Lark Books seeks images of contemporary jewelry for publication in the
gallery portion of a how-to book tentatively titled Cold-Connected Jewelry, scheduled to be released in the spring of 2008. We accept high-quality transparencies, 35-mm slides, and high-resolution digital images.

Artists whose work is selected for inclusion will receive full acknowledgment within the book, a complimentary copy, and discounts on the purchase of books. Artists retain copyright of their work.

Entries must be postmarked by July 31, 2008. No fee is required.

TYPE OF JEWELRY REQUESTED: By “Cold-Connected Jewelry,” we mean jewelry that is created by wrapping, stitching, riveting, and/or folding metal, and by making cold connections with commercial
materials such as screws, bolts, pop rivets, eyelets, brads, nails, and jump rings.

We want pieces that are primarily made from metal components (though other materials can be included in the piece), and we encourage a range of metal types and colors from gold to silver to copper and aluminum.

• Jewelry forms can include necklaces, pendants, earrings, bracelets, rings, brooches, hair ornaments, and more.

• All visuals submitted must represent work that is original in
design. Recent work is preferred. A maximum of five entries per artist is allowed.

Go to the Lark web site at www.larkbooks.com. Click on “Work With Lark” and then “Artist Submissions.”

inventive repurposing to computer assisted rapid prototyping—and diverse materials, including acrylic, latex, epoxy resin, rubber, nylon, thermoplastics, and photopolymers. All jewelry forms, such as
rings, earrings, bracelets, brooches, necklaces, and pendants, will be considered, and all designs styles, from camp to couture, are welcome.
