Gabriel Mourey wrote in the French section: ‘The jewels of M. Jules Debois are works of pure sculpture. His vision, at once broad & delicate, takes the form of beautiful female forms in dreamy or voluptuous attitude, sleeping amid the masses of their abundant hair, against a background of gold, or shell, or whatever the material may be. Any womanly gesture suffices; and, in truth, what more is needed to make a real work of art in the form of a brooch or a button? No conventional flowers, no complicated interlacements, nothing “decorative” in the bad sense of the word; yet his work is powerfully and delicately modern. M. Debois’ jewels are perfect pieces of sculpture’
