Up-towners love New Orleanian Mignon Faget’s designs. Sensuous jewellery in silver and gold, some pieces with gems, crafted in local themes (flowers, architecture, fleur de lis), become small wearable works of art. Faget also creates vases, dinnerware, and candlesticks. The artist presides over a studio of designers and craftsmen in her restored bank building on Magazine Street, just up the road from her gallery and shop. There’s also an outlet in the Canal Place shopping centre.
