At the Brilliant exhibit at the Denver Art Museum, I saw many beautiful pieces of jewelry created by Cartier from 1900 to 1975. There were diamond-and-emerald necklaces worn by royalty, sparkling tiaras, animal-shaped brooches studded with rubies, and clever gold watches for men. (You can see a brief video online if you can't visit in person before the exhibit closes in March 2015.) I even learned some new-to-me jewelry terms such as the "stomacher" which is worn on a lady's dress. However, it was this "behind the scenes" part of the exhibit with the quote from the head of the Cartier workshops that made me smile. Tell the truth—doesn't your jewelry making space also look something like this?
