Fine, .970 silver and black onyx crescents surround the wrist in this book-piece Antonio Pineda Mexican modernist bracelet. One of the renowned maestro’s most popular creations, I have to admit that I love the bracelet much more than the cascading necklace of the same design. There is something fierce and assertive about the crescent-shaped links that remind me of talons. Yet there is also a tenderness in the way they wrap themselves around the wrist – just like an eagle mother protecting her nestlings. Perfect for the medium to smaller wrist and definitely a statement-making bracelet…
