About the Artist

According to Pampillonia Jewelers, now of Bethesda, MD renowned jeweler Maurice Guyot, who also worked for Cartier, created animal brooches for them. Other animals in Guyot’s menagerie included an elephant, a fox, a pelican, a tiger and a fish. The Road Runner is particularly whimsical. Like Guyot’s other brooches, the craftsmanship is impeccable and the animals are lively and sympathetic.
