1969 The First Design

The First Design

As history tells, Mignon was designing clothes and decided to sculpt and design some sterling shells to go with a particular collection. People began walking into her studio and asking to purchase her beautiful sterling shells to wear as pendants.  The success of Mignon’s clothing 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.
