Salvador Dali - Jewellery Designer

I'm sure many of us are familiar with the amazing art works of Salvador Dali, but am I the only one who has been living under a rock? I have only just discovered that Salvador Dali also designed jewellery. He was born in 1904 and began painting at the age of 10, made his first film at the age of 25, and at 45 began designing jewellery. Salvador also wrote a novel which was published in 1944, created sculptures, had an interest in natural science and mathematics, created textile designs, and much more. If I could fit just half of those achievements in a lifetime, it would be a grand accomplishment. Salvador Dali died in 1989 at the age of 84 from heart failure.
