SHORT HISTORY: These pieces were my aunts! As all of them would be either studio pieces or early Mexican or Native American, which is what she always wore. My uncle collected PreColumbian artifacts, so when he traveled down into Mexico to visit excavation sites, She was wandering the town of Taxco! She has a HUGE collection of Mexican and Native Sterling pieces from the 40s and 50s and other unusual pieces by artists or from Mexico that were given as gifts!

My uncle was in the art world and was friends with Harry Bertoia and Claire Falkenstein and ran in a circle of many up and coming artists throughout the 50s, 60s and 70s. This is a link to a recent auction of his where a Bertoia Brooch was found and sold:http://lamodern.wordpress.com/2011/02/25/the-lost-harry-bertoia-brooch/
