A superb and striking modernist pendant by Erika Hult de Corral, the award-winning Taxco jewellery designer who studied in the Parson’s School of Design in Paris and worked with Sigi Pineda and Enrique Ledesma before opening her own studio.
Circa 1960, this is a very large pendant crafted in high polished sterling silver in a sexy sinuous biomorphic form. The centre is set with a deep forest green chalcedony gemstone. It has a large curved built-in bale on the reverse so you can wear it attached to wide variety of necklace chains and silver wire necklets. Please note the chain shown in the photos is not included.
An exceptional collectors piece this designer pendant is stamped with all the necessary silver marks that authenticates it as her work. Outstanding!
