Meet Monique Pean!!


Monique Pean is a socially responsible and eco-friendly fine jewelry artist from New York.  Since 2006, she has been a pioneer in the jewelry industry, using a percentage of her jewelry sales to provide clean drinking water and sanitation to over 5,000 people in developing communities.

Inspired by indigenous cultures, she is as passionate about unique wearable art as she is about the environment.  This is evident in that all of her work combines the use of sustainable materials including, fossilized walrus, caribou and woolly mammoth ivory, conflict and devastation free stones, and recycled gold.  All of her fossilized materials are obtained through naturally melting glaciers, and all the buffalo horn has been naturally shed.

Monique’s jewelry was selected for one of the most esteemed awards in the industry as one of the 2009 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund (CVFF) winners, and was runner up in the Colored Gems Plus category at the 2010 Couture Design Awards.  Monique has remained at the forefront of the fashion world being featured as this year’s prominent designer at New York’s Fashion Week.
