The Idea

It begins with an idea, the progressive curve of a sea snail, the geometric system of rows of corn kernels, the composition of a classical column.  Mignon Faget’s collections reflect her personal interests and how they are scaled to the human body.

Inspiration can be stumbled upon.  It can be found from a quick glance towards an elaborate library ceiling, a stroll through a quiet French Quarter street or a day spent on the shores of the Gulf Coast.  Mignon Faget is an observer, a collector, a finder of inspiration.  Inspiration falls in her lap when she least expects it and leads to the creation of distinctly original jewelry.  Mignon Faget designs by collection.  A theme is chosen and explored by our artist revealing pins, pendants, rings, earrings, necklaces and more.

Final Product

Hand-finishing, patina, buffing, beading…

Every design is different and every design is hand-finished in accordance with the artist’s specifications.

Extra special care is taken so that details are not lost by over filing or buffing. The details of a design are brought out with patina, oxidation of the metal to show the detail of the design.  This use of patina is a mark of Mignon Faget.

Pieces are buffed to perfection, beads are hand strung for necklaces and bracelets.  And each and every piece is carefully examined to assure that it meets Mignon Faget, Ltd.’s high quality standards, deserving of the Mignon Faget mark or signature.
