Monique

Inspiration for Monique’s work began with her mother in Holland; together they would create art jewelry and beyond—from belts to watches and other accessories. Each ring, earring, necklace and bracelet is created around the unmatched quality of Swarovski Crystals™, each containing a starburst of color held delicately in place by handcrafted wirework. The presentation of Monique’s Crystal Collection is both intriguing and fashionable, lending a strong appeal for a wide range of personalities.  

Monique’s jewelry is hand formed over an open flame in Italy by carefully chosen artisans. There is such a delicate balance to the mastering of this technique that to maintain the integrity of her finished work she spent two years looking for the right team. Together they utilize a secret recipe of three metals to maintain the flexibility of the design. This is so the metal can be wrapped around each crystal and the finished jewelry can still be custom fit to the wearer.  

A modern woman can maintain her edge by selecting an onyx black Swarovski Crystal™ with the sharp white rhodium plated setting. A sophisticated woman of style can dress for a high class occasion with a smoky topaz collar of rich gold and the finishing touch of a matching set of spiral earrings. Or brighten a simple, ordinary day by wearing a clear crystal ring and scrolled pendant on leather with a pair of jeans. Watch the clear crystal harmonize with any color it is nearby, refracting and amplifying the related spectrums.

With a fondness for the couture of Paris, Monique has always been passionate about crafting designs that emulate the fashion world. To even be considered to work on her jewelry, an artist must have completed a minimum of four years of art school, due to the high standards of quality combined with the extraordinary level of skill needed to execute her designs. Because there are so many sophisticated and time consuming techniques involved, it can take up to a week to complete every piece of this handcrafted jewelry.

Be forewarned… once you wear your first piece of Monique jewelry you WILL be asked where you discovered this designer. There is no nickel used in any of the jewelry; this means no allergic reactions and no tarnishing. The final design is heavily plated with three layers of either gold or rhodium.
