In order to keep the past of fashion in general alive, to preserve it and comment on it we, Mimi Berlin and Friperie Jansen, decided to partner up. Friperie Jansen is a seller of second hand fashion and the owner of an extensive collection of vintage (costume) jewelry, amongst many other collections.
We created little time capsules, or 3D collages, by combining our vintage treasures (jewelry and photo’s) in a storytelling way. The photo’s are laminated with a coating in 250micron with matte finish. Almost invisible, small punched holes keep the brooches in place.
Tip from Mimi Berlin: send one to a friend, they will love this thoughtful gift!
The Kitty Necklace is a design by Mimi Berlin Bijoux created with salvaged materials: plastic and silver. The plastic beads were discarded by a child at one point and the silver chain is gifted to us by Kitty, it’s an attic treasure. The silver lockets and our little logo-tag are new.
Mimi Berlin Bijoux decided to use the decorative silver ‘Haferkorn” chain to string the plastic beads and delicious food-charms together into a necklace suitable for adults. Presenting these beads, and in particular the lovely, detailed charms, in the way they should be presented: with respect with precious metal.
For their 0.36m² – Bulletin Board Project, Forbo offered a selected group of creatives a Linoleum pin-board of 60×60 cm and invited them to use it in any way they wanted. We, at Mimi Berlin used the board to showcase our Close-Up Portrait necklaces, designed to wear and/or to hang on your wall.
It’s Family Affair at Mimi Berlin: see our ‘Double Portraits’ showcasing the Close-Up Family of necklaces designed by Mimi Berlin.
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.
