Los Castillo Mexican silver copper dangle Earrings

on Jul 20, 2020 in Mexican and Latin American, Rings/earrings

A copper glyph of a highly stylized Maya or Aztec bird motif is set in sterling and adorns the triangular dangle in a set of Los Castillo “mixed metals” earrings from the mid-20th c.. As is the case with many pieces executed in the “metales casados” technique, here too an ancient design is re-interpreted, given a slick, modernist twist and thrust into our contemporary world in a way that ensures it belongs and expresses our modern sensibilities…
