Manufacturing Time

Since the large-scale manufacture of personal timepieces began, industry leadership has shifted among widely disparate locations, production systems, and cultures. This book recounts the story of the quest for supremacy in the manufacture of watches--from the cottage industries of Britain; to the preeminence of Switzerland and, later, the United States; to the high-tech plants of Japan and the sweatshops of Hong Kong. Glasmeier examines both the strategies adopted by specific firms and the interplay of such varying influences as technological change, cyclical economic downturns, war, and national trade policies. In so doing, she delineates a cohesive framework within which to address such broader questions as how sustained regional economic development takes place (or starts and then stops); how decisions made by corporations are structured by internal and external forces; and the ways industrial cultures with different strategic learning capabilities facilitate or thwart the pursuit of technological change.

Contemporary American Jewelry Design

The Phenomenon of Studio Goldsmithing When the history of art in the 1980s is written, much of it will be etched in gold. This is the time of the contemporary goldsmith, an artist who chooses to work in precious metals rather than oils or marble. The contemporary jeweler-as-artist has only recently become a re cognized force. With rare exceptions, the whole field is little more than thirty years old. But it is only within the past fifteen years that these jewelers have entered the jewelry mainstream. The phenomenon of contemporary goldsmithing embraces an eclectic group of artists, each with a unique vision, each taking a per sonal path to jewelry producing. They have as little relationship to the typical, mass-produced jewelry as a champagne maker has to a bottler of orange soda. They approach a piece of art, not a piece of metal. The work is personal and a perfect expression of the "back to the land" movement that spawned it. Many of these goldsmiths were looking not merely for a way to make a living but for a way to make a life that was worthy of living. Running a business while trying to remain a creative metalsmith at the same time is the ongoing challenge. The jeweler-artists have solved or resolved these often conflicting needs in slightly different ways and in a beautiful variety of techniques and styles. Their meth ods, their growth, and their work are discussed here.

Jewellery Making for Profit

Here, for the first time, is a book that tells you how to go about making jewellery for profit. The main difference between making jewellery for pleasure and making jewellery for profit is the speed of manufacture. This book tells you how, once you have come up with an idea that will be popular to the public, to devise a means of manufacturing it that is efficient enough to leave a profit margin after all the costs of manufacture have been deducted.Although it is possible to make items entirely by hand and make a profit if you can sell them direct to the public this usually means having your own shop with all its attendant overheads and demands on your time. At the other end of the scale you can find yourself in competition with well-established businesses. This book takes you along the middle road by speeding up the hand-making process with the use of simple home-made punches, designed and manufactured by the author because there was no commercial equipment available at the time, and he explains how these and the dies and jigs are made. These simple tools can easily be produced by someone who is capable of making jewellery by hand. Every piece of jewellery described was made by the author and sold in considerable quantities over several years.Written by an expert craftsman, with a lifetime's experience, this book is destined to become the standard work on the subject.
