This book is a reminder that Alfons Mucha, a major Art Nouveau artist, was sensitive to jewelry. In his decorative paintings women wear plastrons and sophisticated hair ornaments. There are also rings, corset clips and enamel necklaces with arabesques and oriental motifs. The jeweler Georges Fouquet, whose famous serpent runs along the forearm of the actress Sarah Bernhardt in the poster for Medea, made some pieces.
On her Caillou site, Anne-Lise Delsol sells her selection of antique pieces and solo earrings mode from elements adorning hatpins.
Thierry Vendome, the son of Jean Vendome, is also a jeweler.
Belgian designer Céline Daoust just opened her first store in Paris, rue de Grenelle.
