A Benefactor To A Goldsmith - Barbara Jardine

Goldsmith is a book filled with clean, precise colour plates reflecting on a subject that deserves much attention for its details - It is on the art of Jewelery and Barbara Jardine is the recipient of the coffee table book, entitled, Barbara Jardine, Goldsmith, published by Robert and Christopher.

Robert Campbell took a gamble and produced one of the finest coffee table books printed in Trinidad and Tobago. He also had the incentive to photograph one of
Barbara Jardine’s prized pieces, Warrior at the British Victoria and Albert Museum in London. The genesis of the project came soon after the exhibition, Flux and Fire which was held at the National Museum of Trinidad and Tobago in 2005 and was a show on five jewelers

expands on the Barbara Jardine's repertoire of three decades and offers a privy to her personal life. This is the first in the series of Art books highlighting female artisans in Trinidad and Tobago. The reasoning behind this, Mr. Campbell says, is that they are generally overshadowed by their male counterpart and it is time to recognize the contributions of artists like Jardine, the first of three to come.
