Deco A. Tobias Mexican silver and amethyst Pin / Brooch ~ lilies and buds

on Jun 12, 2018 in archived

Avidly collected for his amazing Mexico City repousse jewelry, A. Tobias is one of my favorite early maestros and the brooch I am presenting here is a great example of his craftsmanship and creativity. A stylized amethyst bud adorns the floral repousse mix of a lily and a serrated, fleshy leaf. Big and bold, it can adorn your most elegant black dress yet look equally at home on a jean jacket…
