Fabulous Follies, Frauds and Fakes by author and goldsmith Robert Baines continues on from the mysterious More Amazing Schmuck Stories (ASP, 2010). A book of three new jewellery stories from his Living Treasure: Master of Australian Craft exhibition, that projects jewellery as documents of our material culture should be read with caution as linear narration is confused by myth, riddle, puzzle and possible subversions of jewellery history. Finely crafted jewels from Robert Baines's collection are posed as riddles that lead to questions of authenticity and sabotage.
