Antonio Pineda 970 silver modernist Cuff Bracelet ~ sublime Mexican modernism

on Apr 2, 2018 in archived

A master of abstraction, Antonio Pineda has the uncanny ability to bestow a sense of flawless, uninterrupted movement to his jewelry. The modernist cuff bracelet presented here is one of the best illustrations I could ever find to support that view. Wrought in the maestro’s favorite .970 alloy, it combines oxidized yet highly reflective surfaces with warmly glowing silver rope in a design that alludes to the slick flexibility of long lily leaves. Absolutely stunning when you have it on, the cuff wraps itself around the lower arm in a beguilingly intimate way…
