HL Does NOLA from A to Z: M is for MIGNON FAGET

M is for Mignon Faget, a fifth generation New Orleanian and jewelry designer. She received her bachelor of fine arts degree from Sophie Newcomb College of Tulane University in New Orleans and continued her studies at  l’Atelier de la Grande Chaumiere in Paris and the Parsons School of Design in New York before returning to Tulane to take post-graduate classes in botany and other areas that interested her.

It’s no wonder that nature and the city she has called home all her life have had such an impact on her jewelry designs. Her collections have names like SEA, BAMBOO, HIVE, and IRONWORKS. In addition to her design work, Mignon Faget is active in local preservation efforts and art advocacy. She donated proceeds from her designs following Hurricane Katrina and the Gulf oil spill.

Mignon Faget has three stores, which she calls galleries, in and around New Orleans. In addition to her jewelry designs, the stores carry home goods like linens and glassware, accessories like scarves and umbrellas, and baby items like silverware and a green alligator bank.

By the way, my human mommy’s favorite Mignon Faget design is her iris pendant, reminiscent of the fleur de lis. Hint hint, Daddy. 😉
