Mignon Faget, Ltd.
MIGNON FAGET is driven to design jewelry derived from natural and architectural forms found in her native New Orleans environment.
“I was born here and I’ve lived here all of my life. What is so beautiful about Louisiana comes out through my work. It is a mysterious place.”
Mignon Faget began her design career in 1969 with the launch of her first ready-to-wear clothing collection. The success of the collection prompted her to explore what might be the perfect belt, pin or necklace to enhance these ensembles. This early exercise and her studies in sculpture from Sophie Newcomb College led to her first jewelry forms. Since then, jewelry has become her all consuming interest in the field of design.
