handmade silver pre-Columbian stick pins

revista-feria-artesanal-12-728We have written about Hilda Cachi, her collaboration with her sister Sonia (the sisters together, above) and her work in Cusco with her father, Gregorio (photo on right). She is known for her beautifully detailed and formal colonial designs.

When Hilda isn’t busy with her Colonial designs, she indulges in her secret passion, pre columbian design. She created a series of stick pins for us, based on pre-Columbian designs, hand made from 950 silver and adorned with dangles of spondylus, peruvian stones and pearls.



We have more of these one of a kind stick pins on the way, in time for the holiday season. Stay tuned!
