Based on a Fred Davis creation – if my memory doesn’t play tricks, that is – this Mexican silver bracelet combines repoussage, beading and oxidation to create links in a classic Deco design that conjures images of exotic birds as they unfurl richly colored, luxurious trains. I will suggest that it was made in Mexico City by a maker that though listed, remains in the shadows of the country’s 20th c. Silver Renaissance at least until more research sheds on him (or her?) the light of recognition. Beautifully made, elegant in a way only Mexican Deco can be, with bubbles of interestingly variegated purple in the amethyst cabs, this is an easy to wear bracelet that can hold its own in any situation…
