The scarce English-language volume on Line Vautrin's jewellery. Vautrin's inventive use of material and form has made her one of the most collected jewellers of the twentieth century.

Vautrin herself has contributed a witty autobiographical sketch, and supervised the layout of ther pieces in the colour plates, while Patrick Mauries supplies a knowledgeable assessment of her work.
