In inviting Lydia Courteille as its guest for its next “Evening Conversation”, the School of Jewelry Art will be introducing audiences to the antique jewelry dealer’s profession. Before becoming a designer, Lydia Courteille used to buy and sell antique pieces like cameo brooches, chatelaines and enamel medallions. They all had many lives, and were often broken up and remounted in line with new fashions or their owner’s tastes.

 

Lydia Courteille has now turned to design, and takes her inspiration from rings, necklaces and bracelets like these. She also incorporates antique components like intaglios and cameos into contemporary mounts. She is fascinated by hardstone carvings, and has them produced with her own motifs.

 

Thursday 12 December 2019 from 8 pm to 10 pm at L’École des Arts Joailliers 31 rue Danielle Casanova, Paris 2e.
In French.
