Fanciful bird stick pin from our Unesco award winning artisans in Cusco. Handmade from 950 silver with a purple spondylus dangle. This pin is a design from Hilda Cachi and was inspired by Pre-Columbian designs. Spondylus is conch shell that comes from the north coast of Peru and southern Ecuador. It has been used in jewelry for centuries and was also used as currency for trading.
