Mignon Faget Double Link Tassel Necklace with Sterling Silver Pendant, silver plated chain and Black Onyx cubes from the HardwearTM collection. ABOUT MIGNON FAGET When native New Orleanian Mignon Faget began her design career in 1969, the jewelry she made was admired by the trendy and the traditional. In 1973, she launched her own atelier-style boutique. There are now four Mignon Faget galleries and an ecommerce website featuring her latest jewelry designs, collector favorites, and hand-selected local crafts and books. Faget's approach to design involves deconstructing and then reconstructing observed forms. These small sculptures are a synthesis of concept, material, and function. With celebrated skill and style, Mignon transforms natural specimens, indigenous plants, and architectural details into objects of adornment that are the expression of good design.
