"The Gijs + Emmy Spectacle
Fashion and Jewelry Design by Gijs Bakker and Emmy van Leersum, 1967-1972"
Gijs Bakker and Emmy van Leersum are internationally recognized as pioneers in their field of modern jewellery design. They were the first to make minimal jewellery out of unorthodox materials, such as aluminium and Plexiglas. The pair set off a real revolution in jewellery design in the 1960s. In this book The Gijs + Emmy Spectacle. Fashion and Jewelry Design by Gijs Bakker and Emmy van Leersum, 1967-1972, the focus is on the early, collective work of the artist duo (1967-1972). This work does not limit itself to jewellery, but also moves into the realms of fashion, design and art.
