Lina Baretti

This month's issue of The World Of Interiors has a lovely feature on Lina Baretti, the Corsican couture jewller who - in her day - was feted by the likes of Balenciaga, Schiaparelli and Chanel.

Her use of lo-fi materials such as cork, metal, straw, velvet ribbon and tortoiseshell simply adds to the charm of her finished pieces. Just goes to show, you can look a million dollars without spending it.
