This is a pre-1966 sterling silver link bracelet with carved Aztec/Mayan warrior faces in red coral

and channel-set cabochon white onyx links made by Erika Hult de Corral. She was a designer that worked in Taxco, Mexico with the famous silversmiths there before she moved to Puerto Vallarta in 1966. She did do the carved faces in different stones on some pieces. You won't find one "like this" because her pieces are designer artisan pieces rather than a mass-produced line of jewelry.

She was known as a brutalist/modernist designer and signed her pieces with RIC.

This bracelet from about 1960 has a current value of $1200 resale.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are Offerup.com (local), Varagesale.com (local), Wanelo.com, http://www.decluttr.com, Bonanza.com, Ioffer.com, Etsy.com, eBay and letgo.com (local).
You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an
auction house near you and consign to them.
Please do click the stars now for this one (bonuses are also welcome!), it is very important for me
to get five-star feedback for answers.
