I design and create all of the jewelry in this shop. Jewelry is as personal as the individual who wears it. I believe it should be timeless and comfortable enough to wear everyday. I strive to create quality pieces that are cherished today and will as time goes by retain intrinsic value.

My jewelry reflects a broad design vocabulary and depth of knowledge of fine jewelry techniques and workmanship. My original designs incorporate settings and components that I have designed and made. Some of the pieces combine a cast element with hand applied detail. I use recycled precious metals and gem stones from ethical suppliers whom I have built strong relationships.

My early career began when I moved to NYC after attaining a BFA in Metals from Rochester Institute of Technology. I apprenticed for a number of years with German jewelers in a trade shop in NYC where I learned the art of classic fine jewelry making. Later I was a bench jeweler of a highly specialized luxury jewelry manufacturer.

I am passionate about my jewellery and the knowledge of materials and techniques I employ to create each piece. I will promptly answer any questions you may have. Custom design work and re-purposing old jewelry is considered.

Hi Mimi, The level of craftsmanship you have achieved in creating this custom piece is just stunning! I will treasure my Franklinia pod necklace as one of my favorite pieces, not only for its beauty, but also for its rich botanical history. The texture of the popcorn chain is so well suited to the texture of the pod. I also love how very comfortable the chain is. I looked at a live Franklinia pod in my collection, and you have captured beautifully all the crisp detail of a pod at its peak. Thank you Mimi for such a treasure! Best Wishes, Jennifer

This stone is so, so special and pairs perfectly with oxidized silver. It's amazing how much it goes with. Colorful, yet neutral.

About

Upholding the tradition of Studio Jeweler.

As a child I was fascinated by a jar full of tumbled polished stones in our home and the idea that a 'rock', once polished, could be a beautiful object. Then I discovered metal. Creating jewelry has been my one and only career and is still my daily passion!

My mother had a large jewelry box with drawers of earrings and rings, brooches and matching sets of necklace and earrings. I would try on everything. Some of the pieces were gold or silver and the rest costume. I was infinitely curious about how these pieces came to be.

After attaining my BFA in Metals from RIT, I followed my teenage dream and re-located to NYC. I worked as a jewelry model maker and bench jeweler full time for nearly a decade at two notable workshops. On weekends I indulged my interest in the decorative arts by roaming the auction houses and museums on the weekends.

There is something special about a piece of jewelry that is infused with sentiment then passed from one generation to the next. And greater still is the personal connection one feels to an object obtained directly from the Artist. I take great pride in the materials and craftsmanship of every piece of jewelry that I create. Thank you Etsy for making it possible for makers to connect with individuals who truly appreciate this experience.

Welcome to FavreBijoux my Etsy jewelry shop. Purchasing fine jewelry is very personal and can be a daunting experience. Please know that I will answer any questions you may have about my work, the materials used or methods of production. Custom work is considered. To contact me please use the Etsy conversation option.

Designing and making fine jewelry has been my only full time career for over 30 years. I purchase gemstones, pearls and gem beads that I choose primarily by quality and color from sources that I have built a relationship with. Primarily I use 18 karat gold and sterling silver. My beaded necklaces are hand-strung and knotted using silk or synthetic. Most clasps and ear wires are handmade otherwise they are the best quality available. I guarantee that each piece is constructed with comfort and durability in mind.

If an item has been sold it may be possible to make another very similar. Please feel free to contact me with questions. Also, if you have ANY questions please ask them before you make a purchase.

All jewelry is gift packaged in either a sueded pouch or hinged box. Some items ship No Charge anywhere in the continental US. Alaska and Hawaii please inquire about any additional shipping charge. FedEx is available for an additional charge. Yu will need to provide a phone number and sign for delivery. International shipping is available by request.

Due to the volatile precious metal market- all prices are subject to change without notice. Item bought and paid same day are price protected.
