Goldstruck: A Life Shaped by Jewellery sets luxurious imagery of a lifetime’s work alongside an honest and often comically autobiographical account of Webster’s career in the jewellery world.
The book 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, Stephen 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.
Enclosed in a luxurious ‘amethyst’ slipcase, the limited edition of Goldstruck is 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 the Limited Edition limited to 500 copies worldwide.
