MEET THE DESIGNER
Hi! I'm Monique, the founder and creative behind Queen Essentials.
My love for bold artistic earrings fueled my switch from a corporate professional to an earring designer. I am a self taught jewelry designer. My designs have adorned the ears of countless powerhouse women across the nation, including the Vouge Attorney Natasha Mayne, Coach Stormy Wellington, Vice Mayor Melissa P. Dunn of Lauderhill ,Florida, Donata Joseph of Donata Skinfood Co., and International Hip Hop/Soul emcee Dynasty.
After receiving a degree in Public Administration from Florida International University in Miami, FL, I held leadership positions in corporate for profit and non profit settings; however, felt the tugging at my spirit to start my own business. I always knew I had the entrepreneurial spirit. I tried my hand at entrepreneurship as early as elementary school with my own bake stand and lip-gloss line and also online clothing boutique in my early 20's.
I embarked on this journey to empower women and to let them embrace the beauty and elegance that resides within them. I aim to create pieces that you won't see anywhere else and that are rare and unique just like each and every one of us. My designs stand out from the rest and are unique in both nature and appearance.
