Sister to award-winning jeweler Franklin Carrillo, this gifted jewelry artist brings her own, more lyrical style to her art. Because she devotes most of her time to family, her output is extremely limited so we are delighted to get a new piece. This pin is a contemporary interpretation of the classic “cricket” design pins and buckles. Not only is the design deconstructed, the artist has suspended the overlaid, decorative silver pattern so it hovers in a 3-dimensional effect, rather than lying directly on the sterling base. A high luster contrasts with the textured background. The lovely purple sugilite stone is cut into a diamond shape and set into a raised, boxed pedestal. The overlay design is attached to this little pillar.Handsome design, ingenious construction, and a budget-friendly price – a happy combo!
Sterling Silver, Sugilite
