More about Billy Boy...
The Billy Boy collections were presented worldwide and featured in many Fashion Magazines and newspaper articles.
Billy Boy created jewelry for designers such as Emanuel Ungaro, Hanae Mori, Charles Jourdan, Thierry Mugler and many more.

In 1984, BillyBoy* opened with his companion/partner Jean Pierre Lestrade/Lala his own "Surreal Bijoux" workshop and showroom in the mythical Rue de la Paix in Paris. The official launching was organized at legendary decorator Jansen, Rue Royale. No less than 1000 pieces of Surreal Bijoux were displayed, announcing a new era in costume jewelry: cartoonish, luxurious, humouristic, pop and new baroque, they were all hand-made.
The "surreal" jewellery he created were making a sensation in Paris and were immediately admired and noticed by Gerry Stutz, owner of Henri Bendel's department store in New York City who ordered 100 pieces for her store. Greeted by an article in THE NEW YORK TIMES reviews the innovative and wildly eccentric, bright colored jewels. The collection is sold out almost instantly.
