Throughout history animals have been an important source of inspiration for artists! It's also been one of the favourite inspirations for jewellery designers. From playful to bold and impressive and childlike funny.
I am completely in love with jewellery that have animals as inspiration. I am aware it's not everyone's cup of tea, but I just adore the sense of humor and the kind of unexpected twist so many designers give to their jewellery.
Like these wonderful pieces:

Fashion jewellery also uses animals in their designs, this is from Brigitte Bijou.
