Los Castillo pluma azteca Mexican silver and feathers iris Pin Brooch

on Jul 8, 2019 in archived

The first one in a small collection of Los Castillo pluma azteca brooches I had the pleasure to discover, this is a generously sized piece featuring a colorful iris in full bloom. There is something magical about jewelry of this type. The delicate translucence of the colored feathers creates the impression that you are looking through gauze into the world of fairies and unicorns. And the minimalism that is almost inherent in the designs leaves so much to your imagination…
