French artist, jeweler, and designer Line Vautrin’s costume jewels and sculpted objects defined Parisian Neo-Romantic chic. Made of resin, glass, and bronze, Vautrin’s designs exist outside of traditional definitions of jewelry and call to mind primitive designs and motifs that reference ancient inscribed tables, hieroglyphics, and pictographs. Her work ranged from jewelry to objects such as mirrors, trays, and boxes. Devoted to experimentation, she opened A.D.A.M., the Association for the Development of the Manual Arts, a craft school where she taught metalworking and jewelry making, and also sold some of the raw materials she employed in her own practice, such as mirrors and sheets of Talosel.
