A wonderful multi-layered pod brooch by Daniel Macchiarini; bronze, copper, and nickel silver with black pearl; approximately 3-1/4" long x 1-5/8" wide; marked: "MACCHIARINI;" excellent condition.

"The exploration of form" was the never-ending journey that Peter Macchiarini began in the 1930s. His experiments with the exploration of depth were represented in multi-layered creations he called "Pods."  Daniel Macchiarini continues to create new, exciting versions of this pod form.
