Submersed in Subversive

It's official....I am in love....completely and uncontrollably infatuated with Justin Giunta's Subversive Jewelry. I'm still pondering what it is that I love more, the incredibly outrageous necklaces or the idea and inspiration behind them. I think the baroque philosophy that "more is more" is what gets me. Drawing inspiration from a combination of history and modern design, Giunta has created magnificent pieces of wearable art. The juxtaposition of the gemstones, charms and twisting and knotting of chains is divine. There is also a great asymmetrical element to each piece that creates an individualistic charm like no other.
P.S. Look for his diffusion line at Target
