Details

A giant maguey spreads its broad flat leaves to shelter and welcome the personages who dwell among the venerable plants. Working in silver, Francisco Sánchez creates an image derived from Aztec codices. Yet he brings a fresh, new look to the design as he transforms it into a pendant necklace.
