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…
