It’s always wonderful if somebody loves your work enough to purchase it. That happened with our green Music Doll this year.As you can see the happy customer mounted the piece on the wall of their restroom. It looks superb, in our opinion.
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.
We, at Mimi Berlin, have been away from our blog for over a year. So we do feel the need to update you, our readers, on what we’ve been up to all this time. Well, amongst other things, and in a nutshell; we created lamps. Below some quick snapshots.
The lamps made by Mimi Berlin
All these lamps are constructed mainly with recycled plastic. Or as we like to say; discarded plastic all sorts; early plastics, newly produced plastic….from Tupperware to…..well, everything but the kitchen sink.
Wait, hold on, we created more in our year of absence

Sammelwut is a German term; literally translated into English as collectors rage. But it rather means the deep urge to collect stuff. As you know we, at Mimi Berlin, are almost professional collector’s, also our objects are made of what we collect. Rob Geertman, the owner of the Sammelwut store chose a number of Faces, made by us, to showcase at Sammelwut. Sammelwut we love that word and we are very pleased that our work can be found at this art and interior store in Nijmegen.
