FRed Davis silver bracelet

This is an early and much copied design from the man who helped start the Mexican silver revival of the 20th C. The clean lines and use of the obsidian are a nice reinterpretation of French Art Deco jewelry. Davis often used this shield and Aztec shape motif as the basis for his bracelet and necklace designs.
