This is a wonderful sterling silver pin by Graziela Laffi of Peru. The pin features a double wave at the top and sports a heavy cast dangling, puffy llama below. The pin closes with a well working safety clasp. Charming!
Graziela Laffi was Italian but worked in Peru producing unique and beautiful silver items in a mixture of modern and pre-Colombian forms. Her work is quite beautiful and rivals the master silver work coming out of Taxco, Mexico. In fact, Laffi is referred to as the "Spratling of Peru". Laffi's work is highly sought after by a discriminating collector base and will be sure to escalate in value.
