Jean Francois Mimilla

Jean Francois Mimilla

Self-taught, Jean Francois began to make handcrafted conceptual jewellery for Marc le Bihan in 1991. The collaboration was perfectly matched due to their similar creative philosophies.

Jean clearly takes his inspiration from historic references by incorporating into his designs, reclaimed vintage beads and other precious material artifacts. He then reworks the materials and assembles them into refined designs that are reminiscent of antiques but are in fact entirely modern in their final execution.

All of Jean Francois Mimilla’s designs are handmade in Paris, France.
