A Little Piece of Heaven Arrives at Max's!
Oh, how I love this! I have been admiring Jacob Albee's work since I first saw it a couple of years ago at the St. Paul American Craft Council Show, and I am really, really thrilled that he has agreed to have Max's represent him in the Twin Cities. Talk about unique....how does some meteorite (yep, you read that right...meteorite, as in the stuff that falls out of the sky and hits the earth every once in a while) sound? If that's not enough, when the meteorite is sprinkled with diamonds, it has the effect of looking like stars, as a customer pointed out to me the other day. Not all of Jacob's work involves meteorites though. The ring pictured here is one his collection that he calls "free diamonds" , and is made of oxidized silver, 18k gold and diamonds that are loose or "free" under the ring's crystal. We're happy to welcome Jacob to Max's collection of great artists, and truly believe that his work is something that is out of this world.
