Imagination + Creativity + Tools =  Mikinora Jewellery, Florence.

MIKINORA’s designs reflect the tension and balance of elements at play within the artist herself: where east meets west, where old exists in tandem with the new, the playful alongside the responsible, the rational with the irrational. Although principally a self-taught artist, she has been fortunate to cross paths with two metal smiths who have been her guiding mentors. She finds the process of metalworking to be meditative and is often inspired by the problem solving necessary to the untrained metal smith.
