  • Model wearing a gorgeous hand hammered patina brass necklace handmade by Kelly Pettibone

Modern minimalist jewelry inspired by nature, design, and the transformation of metal by the elements

Mimi and Ferne handmade jewelry is inspired by nature, design, art deco architecture, and the beautiful transformation in color and texture that metal goes through over time when exposed to the elements.  Through years of experimenting with various natural patina processes, I've developed formulas I can use to both subtract and add color, texture, and depth to brass and copper, yielding results that I hope are interesting, organic, and at times painterly.  The place where science and art come together is where I'm happiest creating, and I hope you'll enjoy wearing your Mimi and Ferne jewelry as much as I enjoyed making it!  --Kelly Pettibone, Mimi and Ferne
