Goldstruck: A Life Shaped by Jewellery sets luxurious imagery of a lifetime s work alongside an honest and often comically autobiographical account of Stephen s career in the jewellery world. The book is a lavish collation of Stephen 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 Stephen 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 enrollment upon a jewellery- making course at his local college in Rochester, Kent to his rise to international recognition.
