Born César Baldaccini, originally a sculptor César incorporated discarded industrial scrap metal into his works, condensing them into compact and colorful squares. Such ideas would evolve into his vision for jewellery. By 1971, he created his Jewellery Compressions when an acquaintance brought in a box of jewelry and had him compress its entire contents into a pendant.
