About

Artist...Designer...Photographer...Blogger...What's not to love about this life!

I've been an artist and crafter since I was a teenager, mostly creating gifts for friends and loved ones and wearable art for myself. As I inched closer to retiring from a life-long career in education, I came to realize that I'm not cut out for a life of golf outings and luncheons! Over time, I've turned a small spare bedroom into a studio, which is now filled with supplies for drawing and painting, jewelry making, and working with yarn and fabric.

Friends and family members have often said that I should consider turning my artistic hobby into a home-based business. My hubby has even suggested that this might be a good way to pay for all the beads, fabric, yarn, and paints that I find so irresistible! In 2015, I did just that, opening Thoroughly Modern Mimi as an outlet for my jewelry creations. After a lengthy hiatus to sort out my plans for retirement in June, 2017, I've returned to the shop with fresh ideas and a new look.

My own favorite pieces to wear are the ones that remind me of special events in my life...gifts from friends...vacation memories from galleries and museums...repurposed beads and charms from my college years. The pieces I create for Thoroughly Modern Mimi are a reflection of those treasured times and what started out as simple origami earrings has morphed into semi-precious natural gemstones, Swarovski crystals, and hand-embossed metals.

Whether you're looking for the perfect gift for someone special, or a unique piece for yourself, check out the latest collections in my shop!

Shop policies

Hello and welcome! I have always enjoyed wearing unique jewelry and accessories, especially items that are handmade. The items listed in my shop are all designed and handcrafted by me using a variety of materials, some new, some vintage, and some reclaimed from pieces that been unloved for far too long.

All jewelry items (earrings, bracelets, necklaces) will arrive packaged attractively for gift-giving. Packaging will vary with the seasons and availability of materials, but your purchase will always be "dressed to impress"!
