This set of artisan made modernist jewelry consists of a brooch, screw-back earrings, and 6 buttons, all made with a design of abstract faces. The main metal is copper, with brass accents and enamel paint decoration. None of these pieces is signed, but they are probably Mexican. (I have seen the round button attributed to M.T. Gomez of Mexico, but can find no information on this artist, or any documentation to back this up. I’ve been unable to find the other pieces anywhere. A fellow etsian says she believes these may have been made by Maya.)

The brooch measures 1.75" wide and the earrings are about .75" wide (one is slightly larger). There are some areas of paint loss on these pieces, as visible in the photos. Five of the six buttons are the same design of a rectangular face. The sixth button is round with a more abstract face. All measure about .75" tall and are mostly in excellent condition, with some minor discoloration on the metal in a couple of places but no paint loss.

Combined Shipping: I’m happy to ship multiple purchases together to lower shipping costs, but for most items I don’t pre-enter a combined amount as I prefer to figure it based on packed weight (it’s usually cheaper that way). If you’d like to know the cost to ship specific items together, just convo me. Combined shipping will always be less than shipping items separately.

International Shipping: Costs may be lower to your country. Feel free to convo me for exact rates.
