    Jean Mahie: Jean Mahie is a pseudonym that represents artist Jacline and Jean Marie Mazard, established in Paris, 1970. The Father-daughter-in-law team prefer to work in 22 karat gold. Each extraordinary, one-of-a-kind piece is hand forged, drawing influence from Roman, Greek, and Phoenician art with an interpretation of primitive design elements. The Mazards often collaborate on the same piece, with an artistry and touch that is seamless, as if made by one individual. They were amongst the first artists to create their own work and to have their pieces represented at Cartier and Van Cleef & Arpels, in Paris, under the “Jean Mahie” name. The jewelry caught the attention of a Neiman Marcus agent and one year later, the company brought the collection to the USA. Jean Mahie continues to produce new interpretations of their evocative designs with the same standard today.
