In addition to the wearable jewelry (covered in the last post), Dali also made many pieces of jeweled objet d’art, which are also on display at the L’espai Dalí·Joies, e.g., this flower with petals shaped like grasping hands.  I do not know if it has any function (I somehow doubt it) but it is exquisite nevertheless.  It can make a very expensive stand for hanging rings and earrings – literally, blings on blings.

To find out more about this collection, goto this web page of the La Fundació Gala-Salvador Dalí.

The elephant with spider-like legs appeared in several of his pictures. The piece really works as an object and the Indian gemstones look much better than painted. The hugh crystal it is carrying on its back makes the legs so much more precarious.

He apparently made many bejeweled crosses.

Quite a collection.
