Cartier - Behind The Scenes - Joanna Hardy

Tuesday, 11 April 2017 - Presented by: West Wales Decorative and Fine Arts Society

Joanna Hardy takes a rare glimpse inside the Cartier Paris jewellery workshops to watch its Royal Collection of High Jewellery come to life. From the initial detailed designs, to the finishing touches of the setters who bring it to life, to showcasing the collection at the Biennale, Joanna explores exactly what goes into creating a High Jewellery collection – two years in the making but based on 160 years’ of expertise. As she discovers, creating a jewel that is in keeping with the Cartier legacy is a team effort: there is no room for individual egos, it is the combined passion and empathy from the creative team that ensures that the jewel takes centre stage.
