Details

Giant magueys spread their broad flat leaves to shelter and welcome the personages who dwell among the venerable plants. Working in polished sterling 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 pair of hoop earrings.

I absolutely love these earrings. They look great-unique-intricate. They have a combination folk/clean modern appeal. I haven't taken them off since they arrived. New favorites.
