The MIMO team is made up of jewellery designers, bespoke retailers, technology entrepreneurs, and tech geniuses. Formed with the belief that there must be a better way to retail bespoke jewellery online, we are on a mission to encourage everyone to try bespoke jewellery online.
MIMO began when our Founder’s brother asked her to help him make a piece of jewelry as a gift for his bride to be at their wedding. Our Founder is a jewellery designer, however the brother did not want this item to be in his sisters ‘signature’ style. The brother knew exactly what he wanted made, including budget and materials, but could not find it in any store, and did not know how to commission an item. Our Founder used her network in the jewellery industry to make the item as described by her brother, and as a result, felt motivated to create a consumer facing site which would bring together multiple makers to pitch for the project.
Our Co-Founders are the oldest of friends, and having both worked independently in emerging digital technologies for retail and mass consumer projects over the last 10 years, have joined forces to create Make It Mine Online.
With support of an esteemed Board of Directors, Make It Mine Online is a venture which aims to positively disrupt jewellery retail, create a new way of retailing jewellery online, and turn jewellery fans into jewellery designers…why not try bespoke?
