Legion Paris is the fusion of the talent of two atypical jewellery artists, two singular women: Lucie Lebrun and Angela Oheix.
They met at the renowned and prestigious French craft school "Ecole Boulle" in 2015 where they learned the art of artisanal jewellery making. Combining their studies with their fierce desire to create their brand, they fought to bring their inspirations out of the raw metal and melt them into exceptional works of jewellery.

As an author, composer and performer, Lucie performed brilliantly in the largest concert halls in Europe and the most coveted festivals for nearly 15 years and released a dozen records. She also worked as a concert musician and is still today a vocal coach for renowned French artists. In 2015, feeling that the shadowy side of this profession was becoming too strong for her to blossom serenely, she decided to return to another art form in which she had already made a name for herself: jewellery, and resumed her studies in Paris, at the Ecole Boulle.
