modernist Los Castillo Mexican silver Clamper Bracelet ~ fish skeleton with copper accents

on Jun 29, 2018 in Bracelets, Mexican and Latin American


An early design by the Los Castillo taller, the fish skeleton is considered a classic and has seen many emulations and reproductions over the years. The hinged bracelet at hand, wrought out of thick silver sheet with copper bead accents, is a modernist treasure that was made for small wrists. Ideal for all of us who love vintage Mexican clampers but can never enjoy them because they are usually too big…
