Cartier animal & bird magic

As a child I was memorized by the way my grandfather, Jean-Jacques Cartier, could make animals and birds come to life with a few strokes of his pencil on a scrap piece of paper – his ability to capture their likeness was magic.

Now I still treasure those sketches but I rather like the finished jewels they became too…

Excited to spot this little bird with ruby eye, carved emerald chest and diamond feathers resting on a golden perch @s_j_phillips – so sweet, and rather elegant too..
