Genuine vintage designer scarves live again, repurposed in necklaces from our luxe John Wind collection of jewelry. Each medallion has been cropped, cut, mounted and set from vintage scarves. The bezels are hand gold- or silver-leafed to further enhance the beauty of these miniature works of art. The medallions are paired with one-of-a-kind reclaimed vintage chains.
John Wind, owner of Maximal Art, began making jewelry while studying at the Slade School of Fine Art in London. John moved back to his hometown of Philadelphia and Maximal Art was born in1985. By 2004 John introduced the John Wind Signature Collection. It was a new look using iconic materials and themes—a luxe marriage of carefully sourced vintage chains and handmade pendants faced in up-cycled high-end designer scarves collected on John’s travels.
