Laffi is known and sought after for her highly original and skilled rendering of Pre-Columbian, Pre-Incaand Modernist forms, she has beencalled the William Spratling of Peru.

This outstanding sculptural necklace was inspired by ancient Pre-Columbian / Pre-Incan motifs.

The eyesexhibit raised, cabochon like exotic jade green color or some refer to it as a turquoise color enamel. Compared tothe finest Mid-Century jewelry by the Maestros of Mexico this is a gorgeous piece of high end studio jewelry which reflects an ancient ambiance by a documented and famous maker.

The necklace has a lovely vintage patina; cleaning and/or polishing are always left up to the buyers discretion, I do not clean or polish vintage jewelry.The bird on the far right is hallmarked: Peru, G.
