Tool Amulet

Tool Amulet

Description

19th century, Guatemala
The chic pendant was once a working tool, used to husk corn and the like.
Jewels sourced it from an old collector of this material, an aid worker. Like her, he found the beauty
in the profane: the quotidian use of necessity giving it a warm, soft and glassy feel.
Later it is kept and worn as a memento.
Our master silversmith reinforced it, say embellished, with sterling.
One of a kind
4.25 x 5/8″
Sterling chain from claps to link: 28.25″
