iconic Sigi Pineda Mexican silver “boomerang” Earrings with tiger’s eye

on Apr 9, 2020 in archived

An iconic design for Sigi Pineda, the “boomerang” can be found with tiger’s eye, like here, as well as black onyx, obsidian, amethyst and chrysoprase. Contrasting niello-ed against glistening silver surfaces “boomerang” pieces exude a sense of slick, unimpeded movement and the wire-wrapped cabochons bring more color and added texture. An interesting detail about the pair of earrings at hand is that it has “transitional” findings – a combination of screw backs and clips that many find easier to negotiate…
