Mexican Deco silver repousse multi-row spheres Bracelet with amethyst glass masks

on Jan 7, 2020 in Bracelets, Mexican and Latin American

I am thrilled to start the year presenting a Mexican Deco silver bracelet with amethyst glass masks and cabs. This type of multi-row repousse semi-spheres bangle (I like to think of similar bracelets as glorified hinged bangles indeed!) is one of the most sought-after forms in the world of vintage jewelry from Mexico. The particular example, with its heavy patina, its molded elongated masks and the hidden clasp (it is positioned behind one of the faces, as you can see) is a veritable little treasure and a wonderful aberration from the classic version. Here’s to a wonderful 2020 – may it bring us health, happiness, peace and beautiful baubles to brighten our days…
