It's no secret that LEGO has become quite a source of inspiration among designers and Max Steiner Design's work proves it.

Max Steiner Design is a designer based out of Bushwick, Brooklyn who has blinged out a common childhood toy most have played with: LEGO. What sets this apart? The main difference is that it avoids using the real thing. While some may scoff at this idea of the lack of authenticity, I like the idea that these LEGO pieces are made from sterling silver with embedded gem stones. It gives it more of a grown-up look and you can admire the craftsmanship behind what's been created. So far Max Steiner Design has created necklaces and cuff links. Hopefully other types of accessories will follow! Stats for Glimmering LEGO Accessories Trending: Older & Average
