Long ago, Toledo was inspired by the figure of Evita and recreated objects that Argentina used this iconic figure in their golden years. The goldsmith was based mostly in pictures as the original objects are part of private collections. "Many deny having objects of it," Toledo said on the occasion. because "as myth, wake up mixed feelings."
More recently, the work of Toledo was highlighted by the American press regarding the twins designed to Barack Obama. It is jewelry designed by hand with silver from our native country with the initials of the president.
