"The quintessential inspirational gallery of silver jewelry art. Edgy, innovative, and redefined describe the work contained within these 400-plus pages. The photographs are stunning, as you would expect from a book in Lark's 500 Series. The book itself is a work of art and one I would like to have in my collection." - Bead&Button
 
"Lark Jewelry & Beading has added another magnificent gallery book to their line up. Talya Baharal juried this gallery book and has selected a plethora of beautiful things from 260 international art jewelers. From shiny and polished to oxidized, blackened silver, this book encompasses the versatility of this metal and the many forms that the talented hands of artists can coax from it. From wire work and lacy, delicate fabrications to ornate and sculptural pieces, this book of eye candy has something for every aesthetic. This is a collection that is sure to inspire and hold you enthralled with its silvery beauty." - CraftGossip
 
"You'll enjoy this book if you like coffee-table books that are mostly large photos with very little text; you want a global view of modern silver jewelry; you enjoy looking at photos of jewelry either for design inspiration or as part of your rich fantasy life; you're curious about all the different ways that silver can be used in jewelry; (or) you like to have a huge, portable collection of gorgeous photos to look at." - Michelle Mach

"This book ... is like walking into a beautifully curated museum show and looking at piece after piece after piece or amazing silver jewelry. There are many pieces where the silver looks like silver. There are just as many others ... where it looks like concrete, ashes, sand, charcoal and other materials. This is the type of book that makes me think about boundaries and why sometimes I set them where I do. This book shows you that there are people who create without fearfulness about how it will be accepted, what people will think. If your artistic spirit would be enriched by walking through a beautiful and bold show of 500 silver jewelry designs, this book brings it to your home." - Charlene Sevier
