What can one say about Aguilar’s “Maguey” necklace? It’s the quintessential book-piece and one of his most loved and time-defying creations. A splendid example of his work and one of those necklaces that become both investments and cherished heirlooms, the example at hand is early and wrought out of almost pure, 990 silver.
Stunning, difficult to find and sublime…
