Stunning, dramatic Guatemala Mayan narrative bracelet
This gorgeous, dramatic silver bracelet has been designed in the long tradition of narrative jewellery. The bracelet depicts, what appears to be, Mayan ritual images with human figures or priest and corn cobs. In early times such pieces of narrative jewellery would have had sacred or symbolic connotations, but for us, it is a way to connect to an ancient culture long ago.

Please note: All the jewellery in this collection is vintage, and thus neither new nor in mint condition. Wear, dents, scratches, oxidation etc. are in keeping with the age of the jewellery.
All the jewellery has been gently cleaned to remove surface dirt and oils but not the patina- which in our view adds immensely to the appeal of vintage pieces. While in great condition (none of the jewellery is broken/chipped/in need of repair), all were previously owned by someone else, and while not perfect each is full of old history and charm. Please use accompanying photographs to make your decision and be sure to ask any questions you may have before purchase. It is also worth reminding that since the jewellery is shot in close-up mode, the pieces may look bigger than actual size. Conversely, some large pieces may look smaller in pictures. Always refer to the mentioned dimensions.
