Charming Plastic Fanstastic new collection by Mimi Berlin Bijoux

‘Charming Plastic Fantastic’ is the title of the capsule-collection by Mimi Berlin Bijoux. This collection, with charm-bracelets and letters, is handmade with colorful plastics that are fantastic!

The ‘Charming Plastic Fantastic’ collection is designed with vintage plastic charms in the shape of everyday objects.To name a few, par example: bags; boots, gloves, binoculairs, boxing gloves, and animals

Charm Letters

Letters: Colorful mini charms captured in resin letters. Note: this is a limited edition.

Charm Bracelets

Bracelets: 3 mini charms sealed to vintage plastic ‘spacer’ bracelets.

Vintage Charms from Rome, Italy

The main ingredient for this capsule-collection are of course the mini-charms. They were found, in the 1970s at the fleamarket in Rome, Italy, by us, at Mimi Berlin. We stored the charms in the attic for about 50 years. Believe it or not: we kept them in a mason-jar.

Exhibition Salon 2022|2023 30+ artists Opening at What Art Can Do

Exhibition Salon 2022|2023 30+ artists Opening at What art Can Do Gallery in Amsterdam

Together with 30+ artists we, at Mimi Berlin, have work (2 statuettes from the Powderbox Girls series) on show at The Salon 22/23 in gallery/project space What Art Can Do in Amsterdam. We went to the opening and took some pictures for yous who couldn’t be there. Your Welcome! As you can see in the photo’s; the place was so packed and humid that we ended up with not one good picture of the actual work. But, and as we, at Mimi Belin, always state.
If you want to see the art on show it’s best to visit and see it for yourself. We suggest that you do so because, in our opinion this exhibition is special; it shows the most diversity we’ve ever seen in a small space and that is super-fun! Thanks to Simone Swildens who invited us to join. xoxo Mimi Berlin

The Salon 22/23 runs to January 28, the gallery is open on thursday, friday and saturday from 13:00-18:00. The address is: Tweede Tuindwarsstraat 4 1015 RZ Amsterdam
