early Los Castillo Mexican silver koi fish Bracelet des 183

on Apr 11, 2018 in archived

One of the Los Castillo workshop earlier creations as is indicated by its low design number the “koi fish” bracelet dates from the years when Margot de Taxco was still married to Antonio Castillo and under the spell of Japanese aesthetics. The bracelet I am presenting here has all the distinctive elements of the motif – the fish swim in and out of undulating waves with air bubbles surrounding them and their tiny scales are carefully rendered en repoussage. Wonderful patina, comfortable articulation and exquisite craftsmanship combine in a bracelet brimming with life and motion…
