 SOLD - Thank you! 
One of my favorite - and at the same time classic - Enrique Ledesma designs the bracelet at hand combines sterling silver and golden sheen obsidian in the maestro's characteristic, perfectly seamless way. Ledesma experimented with various stones creating the specific bracelet but I think this year is meant to be an "obsidian year" for me and I will say that I love this version. Difficult to carve since it is a volcanic form of glass, obsidian has to be worked by skilled, masterful lapidaries to prevent it from chipping and breaking when it's being worked on but the shimmering silvery gold depths it reveals when the light hits it are worth the trouble and the extra effort. The bracelet measures 7 1/8" long (wearable) by 3/4" wide and weighs 36.4 grams. It is fully hallmarked with Ledesma's signature as shown as well as "TAXCO", "HECHO EN MEXICO 925" and Eagle 3 assay mark and dates in the 1950s-60s. In excellent vintage condition with seamless transitions from obsidian to sterling, with beautiful patina, no damage or repairs noted and the added security of a safety chain.
