Inspiration: Mignon Faget

When the hurricane hit in 2005, I moved to an upper-class catholic school outside of New Orleans and often the girls had this distinct jewelry that all seem to come from the same place. I was amazed by it and I learned it was of the most famous jewelrymaker in Louisiana, or the only rather --Mignon Faget (pronounced my-new fa-jay). Created and handcrafted by hand its always nice to see artist do things themselves. Nowadays every celebrity, sports player wife and god knows who else wants to make a jewelry line but can't even sketch a stick man to save their lives. I hope one day to own several of her pieces to remind me of where I came from and what New Orleans used to be.
