The Medley Institute — Founded by Jana Patz in 2010 in Berlin, Germany, TMI is an internationally acting, non-seasonal experiment in aesthetics and concept, primarily aimed towards developing puristic and reduced jewellery. It has since then been a place of constant contemplation over the concept and meaning of fine jewellery, while creating wearable, minimalistic objects made from precious materials.
Inspired by her background as a fashion designer, every outline is rooted in an anatomical study, moulded from the body and stripped down to its essential elements. Complementing, enhancing and balancing the wearer’s pre-existing silhouette, it provides a material contrast, seeking to encourage individual expression. The jewellery isn’t meant to address the decorative, opulent or ornamental. Rather it finds its own language of longevity, existing independently of momentary trends. Ultimately, every piece of jewellery is natural, pure and focused. Adorning through shape itself, decoration becomes unnecessary. Connectivity and coherence throughout the complete production cycle enables quality assurance. From design, creation, manufacturing to communication and distribution – each individual stage is equally curated and receives the same amount of dedication. Each piece of jewellery is handmade in Pforzheim, Germany. Through process of development and the subsequent handcrafted finish, each chain and each bracelet is a unique piece.
