About John Wind

John began making his eclectic, modern/vintage jewelry in London while attending the Slade School of Art. In 1985 he returned to the US and Maximal Art was born. Since then the company has grown to be a trend-setting, internationally recognized brand of affordable, stylish fashion jewelry and gifts.

Wind’s designs have been featured in hundreds of publications over the years, as well as the permanent collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London; The Musée des Arts Decoratifs, Paris; and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.


“I believe that great accessories should…
help you dream, make you look good,
let you have fun, help you celebrate,
keep you connected, uplift you,
your friends, your family.
It has been my life’s work and I thank you
for allowing me to take this incredible journey.”
