Mimi Favre: Mimi Favre has been interested in the decorative arts, design and fashion for as long as she can remember. Her diverse jewelry design vocabulary combined with mastery of fine workmanship is evident in every piece she makes. She designs and creates one of a kind and limited production fine jewelry using traditional goldsmithing techniques and recycled precious metals. Gemstones and pearls are sourced from ethical suppliers with whom she has longstanding established relationships. After attaining a BFA in Metals from RIT, she settled in NYC where for a number of years she apprenticed with German jewelers in a trade shop. Their clients were antique and private jewelry dealers. She learned about the intricacies of fine jewelry by handling, repairing and sometimes duplicating a range of styles. Later, she worked as a bench jeweler and model maker with a highly specialized jewelry manufacturer in New York City which manufactured exceptional custom jewelry. She believes that jewelry becomes part of the individual who wears it and that it should also be timeless and comfortable enough to wear everyday.
