Victoire de Castellane

Loved this video about designer Victoire de Castellane.
Essentially self-taught, Victoire de Castellane designed costume jewelry for Chanel for fourteen years. In 1998 she joined Dior as the first Creative Director of their new jewelry department, a role she continues to this day. Her designs have mountings cast in solid silver according to classical tradition are disguised using a lacquering technique using various hues and textures.What do you think of her designer?
