Léa Stein (born February 11, 1936) is a French artist and accessories maker, known for her compressed plastic buttons, brooches and bracelets. She is often hailed as “the most notable and innovative designer of plastic jewellery of the 20th century”.
The back of a Lea Stein “Quarrelsome” brooch. Note the inscribed v-shaped metal clasp.
Stein’s brooches feature animals, cars, household items, celebrities and people in a distinctive style, sometimes resembling Art Deco (which leads some people to mistakenly date her work to the 1920s). Each brooch has a name, sometimes as simple as ‘Fox’ or more descriptive like ‘Quarrelsome’ the cat. Each design might come in dozens of different colors and patterns.
