From gracing the covers of Vanity Fair, to designing for Hollywood’s A-list, Fine Pearls + Leather ® Jewelry by Wendy Mignot represent elegance, sophistication and true artisanship. Wendy’s signature style is exquisitely conveyed throughout her vast collections that include opulent Tahitian, South Sea, and Freshwater cultured pearls, while encompassing sea glass, shells, stones, and an exclusive presentation of ancient and shipwreck coins. Each hand-crafted piece is strung on soft, hand-rolled, natural leather and tied with precision and care. All materials come from the ocean and surrounding earth terrain; each piece is distinctly beautiful, elegant, and enduring in nature.

Along Wendy’s lifelong creative journey, she has been introduced to unique cultures and people who have inspired her designs. In 1994, she met her husband, Jean-Noel Mignot and they set off on their gypsy lifestyle with sailing adventures in Central American and the Caribbean. From the provoking influences of Wendy’s travels, she captures the character and heritage of the Mignot French connection, the design aesthetic that has become a world-renowned brand defining Gypset Style and Bohemian Chic fashion.

After years of living at sea, the Mignot’s settled along the enchanting Gulf of Mexico with their children, Violeta and Zak. Today her creations adorn style setters across the globe including Steven Tyler, Zac Brown, Kellie Pickler, Alice Cooper, Brian Kelley of Florida Georgia Line, Sheryl Crow, Jason Aldean, Jewel, Dr. Josh Axe and wife, Dr. Chelsea Axe, and countless others. Her designs have also garnered acclaim from an expansive list of media outlets including, O, The Oprah Magazine, Southern Living, Coastal Living, Cowboys & Indians, Billboard, and The Rachael Ray Show.

Wendy Mignot’s trademark jewelry, Fine Pearls + Leather ® are beautiful expressions of her life and adventures at sea with each piece reflecting family, culture, and heritage. You can rest assured that each unique collection piece is a handcrafted, one of a kind, “perfectly imperfect” creation.
