Sterling 925 Sea-serpent Pin Silver, Mexico Sea Ocean Beach

$145.00

000

A glistening solid silver mythological sea-serpent executed in beautiful 925 sterling. The back has a locking pin. The brooch measures 2 ¼ inches by 2 ½ inches. . On my postal scale this piece weighs about 3/4 oz. of silver.

This has never been worn. This piece is part of an artisan produced collection from a Mexican silver taller in the early 1990’s. This creative and stunning collection was all about the sea. It was produced in the lost-wax casting technique and all skillfully handmade and finished.

All the work is a robust amount of sterling and stamped 925.

 

Materials: sterling silver

 

About:

SteelGoatStudio offers a wide and fascinating range of wonderful objets d’art, primitive folk art and iconic cultural pieces, many of which I have collected in my travels to many countries. I have always been drawn to hand-crafted and indigenous pieces which illustrate the arts, philosophies and icons of the many cultures and art movements I have been fortunate enough to explore. My listings here on Artizan Made links to my shop on Etsy. If this item has sold, you will hopefully find similar pieces that capture your attention.

Almost at the beginning of my traveling life as a museum professional, I became captivated with the shrines found in so many cultures. I began studying the reasons and objects that people incorporate into the receptacles of sacred relics and remembrances and the methods they use when making them. I really love and admire the idea of creating honorable or sacred places within a container where homage is paid to someone or something of significance.

Many years of creating artistic shrines have commenced. Along with the artifacts I have collected, I use a multitude of found receptacles including wine crates, cigar boxes, orange crates, and even cardboard boxes as the vessels for these assemblages. I strive to achieve depth and texture by using a variety of techniques and materials: as wide ranging as historical stencils, rusty found objects, old book pages, vintage and period wallpaper, and whimsical recycled pieces, all composed in a robust palette with a contemporary slant.

I also offer pieces in their original form in the shop, alongside the pieces I personally create. After years of enjoying many of the artifacts, I have included them in this shop to share with those of you who also appreciate fine hand-crafted, culturally rich pieces.
