Meanwhile, her pet Enzo, a curious and playful teckel will come to welcome you too. Enzo is such a charismatic dog that he featured a Christmas special collection of twenty  brooches made by an also designer friend of Mimi. mimi scholer barcelona Mimi works with semi-precious stones: agate, quartz, amethyst or amazonite, that she combines with silver, Swarovsky  crystals, hand-painted  elements, silk fringe or leather.  The materials come from Greece, Italy or Germany.  The result are exuberant pieces,  colorful and  very beautiful.
