Painting by Amanda Assad Mounser, profile and designer bio
With a long time affinity for painting, drawing and building, Amanda Assad Mounser chose to translate her artistic expression into a wearable context.  In 2009, she founded her namesake jewelry line MOUNSER in New York. 
MOUNSER focuses on a sculptural approach to design with inspiration rooted in both nature and modernist art.  Amanda’s collections create abstract mementos that reflect the essence of the natural world and its simple beauty through a wistful juxtaposition of color, material and shape.
Silhouettes experiment with the ideas of balance, proportion and movement with attention to both the positive and negative space the pieces embody.  Minimal elements are thoughtfully joined offering an artful yet wearable composition.
In 2019, Amanda and her husband / collaborator Henry Mounser became enamored with the landscape of the west coast and migrated there.  MOUNSER Studio was conceived.  Based in Los Angeles, MOUNSER Studio builds upon the sculptural foundations of the brand expanding the offering to include a beautiful high-polished sterling silver collection, and an art object assortment.   
MOUNSER jewelry can be found at the finest luxury retailers worldwide. Amanda’s work has been featured in Vogue, CR Fashion Book, Harper's Bazaar, i-d Magazine, The New York Times and WSJ to name a few. Celebrity supporters include Alicia Keys, Dua Lipa, Emilia Clarke, Kate Bosworth, Kylie Jenner, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Michelle Obama and Reese Witherspoon.
