Mim Best is a Bristol based contemporary jewellery designer who’s style combines fashion-forward statement pieces and delicate timeless classics, appealing to a wide audience. With over 20 years bench experience, Mim has become a highly skilled jewellery designer working from her Bristol studio and developing her own silver and fine jewellery collections.
Her inspiration comes from simple shapes, pattern, print and surface textures; always seeking to find and create interesting details. From a very young age she developed a fascination for jewellery, in particular ancient, ethnic and tribal jewellery from all over the world; captivated by the stories and the symbolism behind the pieces, the intricate details and the meticulous level of craftsmanship often involved.
Working primarily with recycled silver and gold, she uses traditional making techniques and often stamps the metal to create unique surface textures. Much of her work is then embellished with precious gemstones and intricate wire-wrapped beads. This collection demonstrates her meticulous attention to detail as well as a lifelong obsession with her craft, resulting in original, elegant and beautifully executed designs.
