    Hello everyone!

    I hope everyone enjoyed a wonderful summer. I have been away from CW for some time but the collecting fever has caught up with me again.

    I found this rather unusual cuff bracelet and I am not sure what to make of it. It is only marked "950" and I believe it could be Mexican. I also believe that it is not very old at all. I have been looking at the cut-out image many times. It reminds me of some artwork I have seen before but I just cannot remember where I saw it. Maybe I am seeing things but it appears to me as if there is a spider, a snail, a snake, a scorpion, a man....

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks for looking:)

    P.S.: Martika, many thanks for solving the mystery!

      What an interesting bracelet! I agree that it's most likely Mexican. I see what you see. :-))))

      I haven't seen this design. Has a Memphis 80's-90's feel too. But, Mexican seems like a good guess. Nice!

      Seems like a fair bit of imagery, looks familiar but cannot pinpoint it now. Great score girl !~

      Great bracelet! I know I've seen it, or something like it, before. But, like you and others, I can't quite pinpoint it for sure! [;>)

      The animals on your bracelet are from the so called Nazca lines. So your bracelet will be probably Peruvian. The Nazca lines are visible only from high above, depicting animals. By the way I have got a similar bracelet bought in Peru.

      Martika, you solved the mystery! Thanks so much! When I searched Nazca lines, I found many of the images shown on by piece.
      Phil and NevadaBlades have seen it before as well, but like me, could not remember where. I hate when that happens :( I would love to see your bracelet too.
      Once again many thanks for solving the mystery, martika:)
