Jewellery or jewelry (/ˈdʒuːᵊlᵊri/) consists of small decorative items worn for personal adornment, such as brooches, rings, necklaces, earrings, and bracelets. Jewellery may be attached to the body or the clothes, and the term is restricted to durable ornaments, excluding flowers for example. For many centuries metal, often combined with gemstones, has been the normal material for jewellery, but other materials such as shells and other plant materials may be used. It is one of the oldest type of archaeological artefact – with 100,000-year-old beads made from Nassarius shells thought to be the oldest known jewellery. The basic forms of jewellery vary between cultures but are often extremely long-lived; in European cultures the most common forms of jewellery listed above have persisted since ancient times, while other forms such as adornments for the nose or ankle, important in other cultures, are much less common. Historically, the most widespread influence on jewellery in terms of design and style have come from Asia.
Jewellery is an album by Micachu that was released on March 9, 2009, on a joint venture between Rough Trade Records and Accidental Records. The album features her band The Shapes, which comprises Raisa Khan (keyboards and electronics) and Marc Pell (percussion and drums).
Upon its release, Jewellery received generally positive reviews and maintains a 75 score on Metacritic. Most reviews, both positive and negative, emphasized the originality and experimental, sometimes difficult nature of the music. Drowned in Sound praised the experimental sound of the album calling it "thrillingly improbable pop made by a grade-A maverick."The Guardian similarly praised the music for combining "hard experimentation with soft introspection, her scrappy, lo-fi production wrapped in warmth."
Some reviews were more mixed, but again focused on the experimental sound. PopMatters noted the challenging nature of the music: "The whole experience seems crowded with random experimentation for its own sake," adding, "With a little patience, however, Jewellery soon orders itself."Under the Radar was less sympathetic, asserting, "The record is admirable for its crashing ambitions, but it unfortunately devolves into a tuneless, nearly unlistenable mire of avant-noise fragments."
The word bespoke is derived from the verb to bespeak, meaning to "speak for something". The particular meaning of the verb form is first cited from 1583 and given in the Oxford English Dictionary: "to speak for, to arrange for, engage beforehand: to ‘order’ (goods)”. The adjective "bespoken" means “ordered, commissioned, arranged for” and is first cited from 1607.
Bespoke is a studio album by American electronic music producer Daedelus. It was released on Ninja Tune in 2011.
At Metacritic, which assigns a weighted average score out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, Bespoke received an average score of 72% based on 12 reviews, indicating "generally favorable reviews".
Bram Gieben of The Skinny gave the album 4 stars out of 5, saying: "Musical ideas crash and break against each other in a seamless, organic way, always with a sense of playful wonder."
