About LelongDesigns

On Etsy since 2011

It all Started In Paris

Lelong Designs is a family run business that was started in the mid 1950’s by my father Jean Lelong. He was working in the theatre at the time and started making earrings which he sold to the performers. They placed more and more orders and so it began.

In 1982 I started working as an apprentice when I was 16 years of age and ever since then we have been producing Art Deco & Art Nouveau inspired jewellery.

Every design we make is inspired by the Art Deco & Art Nouveau movements. We make all our jewellery from vintage French findings which were stamped from the original steel die’s dating from the 1890’s to the 1930’s.

Jess & Jean have been travelling to Paris 4-5 times a year to source Art Deco & Art Nouveau findings from the old factories that have been producing these pieces for over 130 years.

Sadly most of the old stamping houses have now closed down but we have managed to build an impressive collection of over 5000 different designs.
We have also been acquiring vintage ’Pate De Verre’ Glass from the 20’s & 30’s. Pate De Verre is a technique where coloured glass is moulded into bold Art Deco shapes and then either etched with acid or layered with silver or gold leaf.

We also use vintage Galalith for our jewellery which is hand cut and polished to make one of a kind unique pieces.

Each piece of jewellery is silver or gold plated. All of our jewellery is nickel free and hypoallergenic. We continue to use the traditional technique of fired glass enamelling. Many of our designs are also set with diamante crystals and semi precious stones.
