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)
