Seen in silhouette, stepped fret motifs known as Xicalcoliuhqui enclose graceful spirals. Francisco Sánchez bases his original design on cylindrical stamps discovered in Tenochtitlan, today Mexico City; such stamps were originally used on gourds. The artisan transforms shining Mexican silver into a dramatic cuff bracelet.
