R. Rivera crafted a very heavy 80 gram bracelet of quality that we are offering today. It is 1.5in. tall and 7in. long. The flow of the design weaves in and out to each link. The addition of hand chased lines that go with that flow set up each amethyst cabochon in the centers of the links. No chips or damage to the silver. A fine example of early Taxco silver.

From the way the panels are joined, it appears that the cloth was re-purposed from, or originally intended for use as, a festival yukata, or cotton summer kimono...
