.....laffi big earrings.....
This is a wonderful pair of sterling silver earrings by Graziela Laffi of Peru. The earrings are quite large and showy with a concave design in hammered silver and an applied figure that almost has the look of Munch's "Scream". The earrings close on the back with well working safety clasps. Nice!
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.
