When I first caught a glimpse of these pieces of art I knew that I just had to share them with you!
Being a huge Haunted Mansion fangirl, John Wind’s most recent creations tugged at my nostalgic heartstrings!
We first brought you word of John’s partnership with Disney in September of last year when we showed you some of the work that he had already done including super cute “Nightmare Before Christmas” pieces and the amazing line that was featured on the Official Disney Fairy Tale Weddings and Honeymoons Facebook Page.
Since then he has also done a whimsical Disney “Little Mermaid” Collection.
These amazing Haunted Mansion necklaces are being sold at the “Room for One More” Haunted Mansion Event held at the Contemporay Resort at Walt Disney World on September 30th. This is the first Haunted Mansion merchandise event that has been held since Walt Disney World ended its run of the “999 Happy Haunts Ball” in 2004. Not only did Wind create these fabulous Haunted Mansion necklaces, he also crafted matching earrings, a charm bracelet, cuff bracelet and ring. I just love John’s Jewelry!
John Wind of Maximal Art tells his Disney Story…
In the late 90’s, we were approached by Natalie Nelson, the buyer for the Walt Disney Gallery Stores, about designing custom jewelry for this new retail division.
The stores were largely geared to adult collectors and fans, so we were encouraged to be dramatic (you don’t have to ask me twice!) and make ‘red-carpet’ statement pieces as well as simpler pieces. Pins were a big category for us then, so there are a lot of pins, as well as cool bracelets and necklaces.
The collections we did included:
Vintage (b+w) Mickey, Mickey Mouse Club Era Mickey, Beauty and the Beast and 101 Dalmatians.
The work did great, but unfortunately the division eventually closed. I’ve seen our pieces on eBay, and one “Target Mickey” collectors bracelet found its way to France and sold for $700! (original retail about $250…)
Time passed, and about 5 years ago I met Disney buyer Deanne Hill at the LA gift show. I told Deanne about our history with Disney, and she offered us a new opportunity to design for the Disneyana Store at Disneyland.
We started slowly with a classic Mickey group (recreating some of our earlier designs and adding new ones).
Since then we’ve added Nightmare Before Christmas, Cinderella, Mickey Mouse Club Mickey and .
And the pieces are now also available at New Century Jewelers on Main St. and the jewelry shop in Walt Disney World!at Disneyland, plus the Vault in , and coming soon, several locations at
For a designer whose work centers around imagery, the opportunity to go to the Disney archives and pick my favorite images of these iconic characters has been incredible!
Plus, becoming part of the rich history of theis a huge honor and a very gratifying collaboration.
