Lea Stein

Lea Stein (1931 —) is a French artist and accessories maker, known for her compressed plastic buttons, brooches and bracelets. Often hailed as "the most notable and innovative designer of plastic jewelry of the 20th century" you can read more about her here. Here are just a few examples I found on Etsy, above, Lady portrait broach.
Rad Purple lion.
Foxy lockys! I have a fox in white, red and blue. That's the nice thing about Lea's pieces, every one is different.
