What is Ms Von Bis doing, you ask of us, well she takes of her cardigan because she’s just to hot in her twinset. We made this series a while ago but never posted them, we, at Mimi Berlin, can’t even remember why we didn’t.
Pessary Ring as Bracelet. Percussion Hammer as Brooch
While researching some antique objects on the interweb we stumbled upon an image of a pessary ring made in 1975. We’ve never used this contraceptive device so we didn’t recognize it as such. To us, at Mimi Berlin, this rubber band looks more like a bracelet; a modern design bracelet. And in our minds the percussion hammer could well be a brooch. .

A reflex hammer is a medical instrument used by practitioners to test deep tendon reflexes. Testing for reflexes is an important part of the neurological physical examination in order to detect abnormalities in the central or peripheral nervous system. Reflex hammers can also be used for chest percussion.
