Antonio Pineda silver ball bearing bracelet

Reference: William Spratling and the Mexican Silver Renaissance by Penny Morrill on p.52; Silver Seduction: The Art of Mexican Modernist Antonio Pineda exhibition catalogue, p. 52

This bracelet is from Antonio Pineda's strongest design period when he was producing very impressive designs based on repeating forms. It is known by many names: "Hubcap", "Hinged Spheres", "Ball Bearing".and "Saturns" to name a few.

This piece shows his genius in connecting links invisibly, and at the same time exploiting the connections to make his design so unique. When it comes to elegant forms and statement pieces, this is Antonio Pineda at his best.
