Antonio Pineda Mexican silver turquoise Pin Brooch ~ modernist starburst and arrow

on Apr 4, 2020 in archived

A silver arrow shooting through the turquoise center of a starburst is quite a powerful design and in the hands of Antonio Pineda, it becomes a jewel to be enjoyed and lovingly bequeathed from generation to generation. I like the little game Antonio plays here – who wouldn’t expect the arrow to shoot through a heart, right? After all, Eros and his bittersweet weapons are so familiar to all of us. But no – the arrow in our case shoots for the … stars and the turquoise blue sky is its limit…
