British Jewellery designer, Stephen Webster, has announced his book Goldstruck A Life Shaped by Jewellery will be published by Heni Publishing in November.
The book will share the story of Stephen Webster’s jewellery universe in an entertaining and visual way – setting luxurious imagery of a lifetime’s work alongside an honest and often comical autobiographical account of Webster’s career in the jewellery world.
Goldstruck is a lavish collation of Webster’s personal and professional life, encompassing material such as photography by Rankin and Amelia Troubridge documenting his coveted collections, intricate sketches and designs that convey a fascinating creative process, and archival imagery—including magazine editorials, advertising campaigns and intimate photography from Webster’s personal collection.
Alongside such visual opulence, a foreword by Tracey Emin and a host of candid and personal recollections from luminaries of the worlds of art, entertainment and fashion, Webster charts his career from the first steps of enrolment upon a jewellery making course at his local college in Rochester, Kent to his rise to international recognition.
Speaking to Professional Jeweller about his upcoming book, Webster said: “In nervous anticipation, I hope people might find something entertaining or of interest in the book.”
The book will also be available in a Limited Edition copy packaged with a unique illustrative print of the Wrath Ring from the Seven Deadly Sins collection, created exclusively by Stephen’s design studio as part of a series for the publication of Goldstruck. Each artwork has been signed by the author, with this edition limited to 500 copies worldwide.
