Necklace, No. 106
Jean-Francois Mimilla Necklace 106. Multi layered antique wood bead necklace in a neutral shade of greyish purple intermixed with layers of stainless steel chains, with large slide clasp. Handmade in France.
Self-taught and fascinated by old materials, Jean Francois Mimilla peruses the Puces de Saint-Ouen looking for glass & wood beads, vintage rhinestones, and stainless steel chain to use in the construction of his handmade jewelry. He shares a studio with his partner and clothing designer, Marc LeBihan, and makes special one-of-a-kind boxes for each of his pieces from Marc's scrap fabrics or vintage materials he sources from around Paris.
