Cut steel jewelry
Life lesson learned- don’t tell your parents to stop collecting.
Cut steel jewelry is a more specific trend derived from cut out details.
It is made from tiny faceted and polished steel; these pieces became famous in France in 1759 when during the seven years war King Louis XV confiscated these pieces to help fund his military campaign.
