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)
