modernist Mexican silver and onyx Necklace in an Antonio Pineda design

on May 29, 2019 in archived

Heavy Mexican silver and black onyx modernist necklace, this is a 1980s copy of an Antonio Pineda original. The necklace’s trapezoidal links are graduated in size and strung as tight as is necessary to allow it to sit perfect around the neck. The central links, thirteen in number, hold cabochons set in raised bezels. Very nicely made, a necklace that epitomizes the less-is-more attitude that characterizes a lot of Antonio’s designs…
