Where does the name Mikmat Designs come from?
Mikmat embodies everything about an eclectic Mix & Match style, so I thought what better way to remember this than Mik (Mix) & Mat (Match)?!
Who makes all of these amazing earrings?
I do! I design, draw and assemble each pair of Mikmat earrings. I love to work with other small businesses, and work closely with a local laser cutter to get all of the shapes laser cut (sometimes from other's offcuts and weird left over shapes!). They are then assembled here in the Mikmat Studio in Newcastle NSW.
Are they original designs?
Yes! All of our jewellery is sketched by hand, designed and then digitally drawn before sending these to our laser cutter.
I have really sensitive ears, can I still wear Mikmat earrings?
We have some great friends who have tested our earrings in their sensitive ears and they have had great results! We think its a combination of being super lightweight and using hypoallergenic stainless steel, it means that the earring doesn't drag into your ear, while also being nickel and lead free.
You know your ears better than we do though, so if you are super sensitive, get in touch with us via email or our Custom Orders page and we can see what solutions we can come up with for you.
