Aiguillette by Line Vautrin is a gilded bronze long necklace.
Line Vautrin was inspired by the aiguillette for the design and the name of this very pretty necklace.

Line Vautrin was a French artist born in 1913. She acquired the technical skills in chasing and gilding thanks to her father, an art bronze worker. This allowed him to create his first collections of buttons and jewelry. With her talent and creativity, Line Vautrin quickly distinguished herself with her works that combine mischief, humor and poetry.
Line Vautrin was particularly known for her engraved rebuses to be deciphered, which made her famous and earned her the nickname of “metal poetess”. Among his most famous creations are the Saute-Mouton necklaces, the Plat comme la galette, Skinny as a Nail and Long as a Giraffe boxes.
With her unique style and her personal touch, Line Vautrin left an indelible mark on the history of art. His artistic heritage continues to live on through his works still appreciated today.
