Atomic Mingo came about when Miss Lixxie Lou kept thinking up brooch ideas that she wish existed. After a little bit of designing and being covered in mainly pink paint, Atomic Mingo was born! Each of the brooches,necklaces and various other items are hand designed by Miss Lixxie Lou using illustrator then they get laser cut onto a timber veneer. Once these pieces have been perfected, each one is hand painted and then packaged up and sent to your doorstep.
