A book-piece design, this big dragonfly silver and agate brooch bears the signature of Horacio de la Parra, a maestro whose work has never disappointed me in its quality of materials and level of craftsmanship. A not-so-often found brooch, the example at hand is even more unusual because of the almost robin’s egg blue color of the stones…
