Was founded by Miisa and Mark Mink in London last year. This inspiration came out in the grand bazaar of Istanbul on holidays, in which local jewellers combine their rows of colourful materials with the bustle of a thriving marketplace.
So, with Mink&Stone, they look for re-create and share their amazing experience by providing high quality materials and let their clients set their style free and also have fun designing their perfect, and unique, piece of jewellery (as I did and will show you a bit later).
“Every outfit deserves the perfect piece of jewellery. We want our customers to set their style free.”
If you have never done handcrafts before DONT WORRY cause in their website you can find some “inspiration” and examples sorted by:
- short necklace
- long necklace
Or, if you prefer, by collections and depending of your closest style, you can find:
Theres also and option where you can meet and get info about their fabulous materials (all kind you can imagine, but all of them, high quality).
But let’s start to talk about my own experience with this artistic brand:
To be honest, I was a bit lost at the first time, but when started, I realized is so easy, funny and learning experience. At the same time I was thinking and designing my piece, I also learnt a bit about each one of the materials I chose.
- The first step, consists in choose what kind of necklace or bracelet you want (the measurement)
- Once you choose the option you want, you can see a virtual thread and at the right side all the materials ordered by size
- Enjoy the design process until the end and….voilá! your fabulous, unique piece of jewelry is done!!
How to describe my piece….I guess I inspired myself from greek and roman culture and also from Atelier Versace’s last collection. And I choose blue as main color cause is my favourite one.
Congratulations and thanks a lot to Mink&Stone for this amazing experience and oportunity of being designer for a while. I really enjoyed and had tons of fun, and Im sure, I will come back to make maybe a bracelet to match with this beautiful necklace.
I invite and so recomended to everyone this opportunity to have your own unique piece, you won’t regret and be soo satisfied with your imagination and bring out the artist everyone has inside.
