A most adorable centipede provided the source of inspiration for this modernist Reveriano Castillo Mexican silver and tiger’s eye brooch. Quite a rare find – and an exciting one at that! – the brooch is long and the graduated semi-spheres that form the creature’s body are articulated so that you can position it in many ways on your clothes using the pin clasp but also the little hook that is located behind the centipede’s pointy “tail”. I am always attracted to the molten caramels and golden browns of tiger’s eye stones and the cab used here is such a treat…
