This Mexican silver necklace weighs 65 grams and is 16in. long with each tulip being 1 1/8th inches tall. It is double signed as shown with TSL. Each tulip has hand made partitions that form the flower. Next the Maestro makes a tiny bead ball and centers it as the stamen to the bottom of the hanging flower. This was an intricate number of steps to build each flower alone and not to mention the swirl of the stem that attaches to the necklace...

A direct reference to Antonio Pineda's work this early Taxco "comma" bracelet is unsigned but its maker's anonymity does not seem to have affected the pride he took in his creations. Beautifully made and carefully finished, with deeply colored stones rich with inclusions, it has good weight but is not overwhelmingly heavy so perfect for the hotter days of summer. The bracelet is 6 3/4' long (wearable) by 1 3/16" wide and weighs48.6 grams...

This is an early signed Tobias, open backed, and repousse cuff that is 3.25in. tall and weighs in at 84 grams.

No repairs or cracks in the depth of the sprawling flower motifs. The carving on the tops of the floral repousse is exquisite. Fits an average wrist and tapers to accommodate for size up the arm making it a comfortable fit...

Set of two early Mexican silver bangle bracelets, I love to combine these pieces - the more the merrier, especially in the summertime! Very nicely made and with good weight (the "dimpled dot" piece in particular), they look spectacular together and will add just the right amount of "ethnic" flair to your appearance. With an inner circumference of 8" (the turquoise bangle is ever so slightly bigger) the bracelets' width is 1/2" (dimpled dot) and 3/8"...

Sigi Pineda signed pectoral with a substantial weight of 97 grams heavy and an average wearable length of 16 inches. The fit is adjusted by the connection on the sides which moves up and down for perfect seating on the neck. The wave gives the piece dimension and the lower recesses of the wave give depth with a niello surface. Stellar in condition, just LOOK AT THAT NECKLACE!

Though not as prolific in jewelry making as some of his contemporary Taxco maestros (Parra is known for his high quality holloware), Parra's repousse pieces can be down right stupendous. I have had the bracelet at hand with amethyst stones before yet I feel the combination of silver and black onyx is the epitome of Deco elegance. My appreciation of the highly complex design I will leave to the photos to express. The bracelet has an inner circumference of 6 3/4" (clasped)...

Here’s a brightly colored, basse-taille enameled Panda Bear charm: so cute. It measures 7/8" x 7/8". The back of the charm is marked “MEXICO 925” and eagle “15” mark. Although eagle number “15” was used by such famous silversmiths as Los Castillo and Antonio Pineda, this piece was very, very likely to have been made by Castelan who used only eagle number “15” and did some work with silver and enamel (although, he worked mostly with just sterling silver)...

Big and with a distinct less-is-more attitude that nevertheless stays within the more traditional confounds of Mexican jewelry design, a rare to find Los Castillo ring adorned with a chunky turquoise. I love the greenish hue of the cab and its towering cut and I also appreciate the fact that this is an adjustable ring. Currently a sz 9.5, it can be made larger, if needed. Its face is approx. 7/8" by 5/8" and when worn, the ring rises just shy of 1/2" off the finger...
