on Mar 15, 2017 in archived

Stupendous Velazquez Mexican Deco repousse necklace featuring a huge rose with three highly stylized cascabeles and a chain that is adorned with graduated bezel-set greenish blue stones. This is a monumental necklace, very  much in the spirit of Matilde Poulat’s “rosas” pieces and its adjustable length makes it easy to wear for most of us. In one of the photos you can see it matched to a similar Velazquez bracelet that is also available here…
