Monique Rancourt is a Contemporary Jeweler residing in Waltham, Massachusetts. In 2008 Monique received her BFA with a concentration in metalsmithing and Jewelry from Massachusetts College of Art and Design. Monique practices traditional metalsmithing and Jewelry techniques, creating Jewelry that is inspired by historical references, specifically traditional body adornment of the Pacific Islands and Africa. Keeping these traditions in mind Monique pushes the limits of traditional techniques exploring form and pattern from the environment in which we live. Monique currently works and lives at Lincoln studios and Teaches at Metalwerx in Waltham Massachusetts.
