Important Bagatelles Dolls

All these Dolls and Faces are made with an assortment of plastic, like vintage Tupperware and several other household and baby products, which were discarded by someone at one point.

The minty green doll, Green Music Man, doubles as a music box, just pull the orange cord an you’ll hear Beethoven’s Für Elise play.

Swedish Face

Again, this face is made with discarded, vintage plastics, mounted on glass. It’s named the Swedish Face. Same as the other dolls the mouth is just round and open.

Girl Doll

A.k.a. The Robot Doll, the backside, is approx 70 cm tall. She comes with the metal meat-hook. If you want the more friendly ‘pastel’ experience Mimi suggests that you use a different device to hang her onto your wall.

These dolls and faces are a small sidestep from Mimi Berlin’s ‘Important Bagatelles’ or ‘Toys for Girls’ project. A sidestep in the sense of that these aren’t abstract objects. Also they are visibly assembled and each product used by Mimi is still identifiable.

The thing is though If we make even more sidesteps, we eventually have to change these ‘sidesteps’ into the main project. We’ll deal with that later on, anyhow; all the ‘sidesteps’ are designed with discarded plastic objects like toys and household products. All gathered at our ‘garbage-treasure’ hunts.

close up portraits

Close-Up-Portraits is a series of 4 portraits, which can be used as a necklace, a toy, a tesbih or as an artpiece on your wall.

The Close-Up-Portrait series are one-of-a-kind pieces, made with beads in onyx, coral and pearls (salt, sweet and cultivé). The smiles aren’t perfectly white; these yellow smiles are made with vintagedeluxe glass beads. All the faces have 14kt golden locks on the top in the middle.

As said earlier
: Close-Up-Portraits are unique pieces. To reach a broader audience Mimi Berlin Bijoux created two simplified (not so very simple of course) designs which have been taken into production. Two Close-Up necklaces have been developed: Eyes and Smile. Yes, you’ve guessed right: together they form a face. (View and/or Buy Here)


Second Best Necklace

“Classic Pearls, but not your average necklace….”

The Second Best necklaces are designed by Mimi Berlin Bijoux and are part of the Evolutionary Extravaganza series. These faux pearl necklaces are handmade in The Netherlands with beads taken from vintage (costume) jewelry. The faux pearls, lockets, plastic, celluloid or/and glass beads etc. are all re-used materials: so every single necklace is unique.
