Presenting a vintage mid-century Taxco Mexico Metales Casados SIESTA Sterling Silver Pendant Brooch featuring crushed chip inlay consisting of Turquoise, Azurite, Chrysocolla and Malachite as the dramatic background for our Sterling Silver Hombre’, taking a Siesta between a Copper Saguaro and a Brass Prickly Pear cactus. Metales Casados (Spanish for mixed or married metals) was the use of Sterling, Copper & Brass in a single piece and was the trademark of several renowned Taxco silversmiths during the 1950’s – 1960’s. The domed pendant / brooch allows the figures to truly pop with the reflection of light. It has a fixed 3.2mm bail and the pin is straight, with all of the hardware in perfect working order.
