Mimi Favre creates elegant artistic fine jewelry from her studio on Philadelphia’s fabled Main Line. A classically trained goldsmith, she creates jewelry from signature settings and components and selects gemstones from her carefully curated collection. Mimi realized her passion early in her career. After attaining a BFA in metals from Rochester Institute of Technology, Mimi further honed her skills working with German master jewelers and New York luxury jewelry houses, where she made new jewels from designers’ renderings and restored exquisite estate pieces.
Mimi’s life-long interest in the decorative arts and attunement to natural and botanical forms attain a lovely balance of the visual and tactile in her designs. A unique blending of color relationships with texture and refined sculptural elements defines her modern yet organic style of jewelry. New to lapidary, she has been learning to cut and polish stones for her jewelry. Mimi is the recipient of the prestigious American Gem Trade Association’s Spectrum Award.
