I Like Maximal Art

When I lived in Philadelphia I discovered Maximal Art jewelry. I found my first piece at a charity auction. That's it in the photo above.

Soon I started noticing similar pieces in stores around Philadelphia. I also came across an article in the Philadelphia Sunday magazine about the designer of these pieces, John Wind.

He makes collages out of printed text and little pictures and puts them under liquid crystal. Then he embellishes them with crystals and jewels and little charms.

Here are a few more from my collection:

I like their originality and their vintage charm. I just noticed something... I have a lot of heart-shaped pieces, don't I?

I like your blog. I found it because I was looking at images of Hawaii and one of them was yours and it took me to your blog. It has lovely random thoughts. Thank you.
