Jewel of the day: Antonio Pineda wing bracelet

I wrote about this in one of my first posts, but after wearing this bracelet this weekend I felt it deserved a second look here. It is a solid and beautifully designed cuff bracelet by Mexican silver maestro Antonio Pineda. The scalloped wing is set in front with a white pearl that looks  about 7 or 8 mm. I am guessing it was made in the late 1950s, possibly the 1960s (any Pineda experts out there who can tell from the stamps please get in touch!)

When worn, the wing juts out to the side (and because you have to be careful not to smack it into objects while walking or working, it doesn’t get worn often!) It attracted a lot of positive attention yesterday and I really enjoyed having it on. I think it’s a special piece, as much sculpture as jewellery.
