This is an EXCEPTIONAL sterling silver pendant that was hand wrought in Taxco, Mexico, after 1948, by silver maestro, SIGI PINEDA. Sigfrido (Sigi) Pineda, was born in 1929, and is an award winning artist who began his illustrious career when he worked forLos Castilloas a teenager. Shortly thereafter, he worked with silver maestros, Salvador Teran and Felipe Martinez atPiedra y Plata, and then he worked for Margot von Voorhies Carr and was the head of her enameling shop. He left Margot to open his own shop in 1952, originally named "PLATEROS" ~ a short time later, he changed the name of his shop to "SIGI". Many examples of Sigi's art-to-wear jewelry are showcased in the must have book,MEXICAN SILVER, by Dr. Penny Morrill and Carole Berk, pages 190-199. This pendant is masterfully crafted in an artistic and sculptural organic design. The pendant is made of heavy gauge sterling silver in a stylized cicada (Latin meaning "tree cricket") design. In Mexico, the mariachisong "La Cigarra" (lit. "The Cicada") romanticises the insect as a creature that sings until it dies. The pendant has a permanent sterling bail on the back. The silver has acquired a wonderful soft patina that reflects the shadows created by the depth of the designs. I am including a new Mexican sterling silver collar style necklace so that the winner can immediately wear this pendant on a necklace. This magnificent pendant is extremely well made in a unique and artisitic design that will always be in style ~ designed and made by SIGI PINEDA ~ it is collector and heirloom quality, quite simply,THE BEST!

Dr. Penny Morrill, well known author and one of the world's leading authorities on Mexican silver, kindly provided the following about Sigi to be included with the Sigi Pineda treasures that I offer:

"Sigi Pineda considers the essence of form with few distractions. Nothing is represented but the originality of an idea. In each of his designs, the overlapping, interweaving, or opposing lines in silver have a distinct edge and a continuous surface.
Sigi is uncompromising in his articulation of the modernist spirit. As a designer, he is not only interested in the construction of elegant abstract forms but in the spatial voids they create. This dynamic makes the work he produced in the 1950's as new and fresh as the work he is designing today."

SIZE: Pendant: Length is 2-1/4", width is 1-1/4", and weight is 27.8 grams. Necklace: Inside circumference is 15-1/4" plus the gap of 2-1/2" in the back (is somewhat flexible) for a total of 17-3/4", width is 1/4", and weight is 14.4 grams. Total weight of set is 42.2 grams.

CONDITION: Excellent vintage condition ~ no dents or dings to the silver ~ minor surface scratches to silver due to normal wear and age (and actually desirable on vintage jewelry!) ~ no damage noted ~ just about PERFECT used condition!

HALLMARKS: Pendant: "SIGI, and an illegible Eagle assay mark". Necklace: "MEX, 925". SIGI PINEDA and this style hallmark (photo P-61) are shown on pages 134-136 in Bille Hougart's highly respected source book, The Little Book of Mexican Silver Trade and Hallmarks (2013 edition). BILLE HOUGART'S NEW 3RD EDITION IS NOW AVAILABLE HERE ON FROM SELLER "CICATRIX!" OR AT YOUR FAVORITE ONLINE OR BRICKS & MORTAR BOOK STORE!

PLEASE NOTE: For Mexican jewelry artists and designers, silver is their canvas. In their hands, craft meets creativity and silver becomes wearable art. The various techniques are like a painter’s brushstrokes ~ they make each piece unique and a timeless object of beauty. Mexican vintage silver jewelry is handwrought, and therefore, not perfect ~ each piece will have variances that indicate that the piece is hand made. Vintage pieces will show various signs of wear since they have been pre-loved ~ items are described to the best of my ability and any damage will be noted.

Please email me with any questions and check out my other sales. I try to list new treasures several times per week ~ all of my sales begin and end in five minute intervals, beginning at 9PM ET. Thanks for your interest!
