Visual Artists Who Dabbled in Jewelry-Making

Jewelry-making and art share a long and interwoven history, but it wasn’t until the 20th century that artists discovered the true potential of jewelry as another form of expression.These miniature works of art, often conceived for loved ones and intended for a very select market of connoisseurs, also gave many artists the opportunity to test their practical ability and to confront unprecedented constraints.

  • Salvador Dali, The Eye of Time. Platinum, diamond, ruby and blue enamel brooch with a mechanical Movado watch movement. Sold for $300,000 via Sotheby’s (May 2017).
