Throwback Thursday: Circa 1985

Did you know our name is Circa 1985 because that’s the year John Wind, our Lead Designer, founded our parent company Maximal Art? Here’s a polaroid of John when he was photographed by Andy Warhol, circa 1985!

1985johnwindandywarholJohn studied as a fine artist in London and it was during this time in Europe he fell in love with flea market pieces from Portobello Road in London and Porte de Clignancourt in Paris- which continue to be places of inspiration!  He started making vintage jewelry into collage-style brooches with acclaim from the fashion world! Returning to his hometown of Philadelphia, John set out on a jewelry career that now spans 28 years! While the meaning of “Vintage” has changed over the years, the company’s focus on producing beautiful and affordable fashion jewelry in the USA is at the foundation of every design.
