A master lapidary, Enrique Ledesma has a magical way of seamlessly marrying silver and stone and the bracelet presented here is one of his signature designs. I am very partial to azur-malachite and just by looking at the richness of the blues and greens in the stones you can understand why. Measuring 7" long (wearable) the bracelet is 3/4" wide and weighs 35.5 grams. It is signed with Ledesma's name as well as "TAXCO HECHO EN MEXICO", "925" and also bears Eagle 3 assay mark and des. no 202...

A heavy, organic design distinguishes this handmade Mexican ring from its contemporaries. The stone is set within a vine-like mount, and is highly polished, fiery, showing very little wear. The ring band and mount have somewhat of a rough, handcrafted look, and the surface has a robust patina from age. It dates c. 1960, and is partially marked Mexico on the inner band on one side, and 925 with another mark starting with M that could be for Mexico or the maker’s initials...

A really challenging piece to photograph - all those surfaces that curve and turn and face each other just won't behave! - yet equally impressive and inventive in its design, this bracelet is based on a creation by Antonio Pineda that seems quite difficult to find. Signed by an unidentified maker in our case, it has powerful presence, the "sharpness" of the links' pointy ends softened by the warm caramel and brown tones in the tortoise shell inlay...

Cross-pollination is as important in the world of jewelry design as it is in any other aspect of human civilization and the early Taxco silver necklace at hand is quite an example! Hand-wrought in Mexico in the 1940s, it betrays a strong Danish mod (or Scandinavian in general) influence and brings to mind David Andersen's foliate jewelry. I love the heart-shaped leaves with the hand-etched veins and the tiny little beading that accents them...

Published in Penny Morrill's latest book on Margot de Taxco's enamel work, the so called "Curling Lines" necklace is one of her most loved designs and definitely a piece that epitomizes her understanding of femininity and elegance. Deeply sculpted repousse links that bring to mind feathers dotted with perfect silver beads, lead to a gorgeous central piece where the silver twists and twirls like waves in the sea...

Not to rush the seasons yet vintage Mexican silver jewelry is so closely related to the holiday period that I have to start now!

Fully marked with maker's signature as shown as well as "HECHO EN MEXICO D.F...

Margot de Taxco design # 5120 with amethyst drops is rare. This beauty is properly hallmarked on both the chain and the drop. The necklace is 17.5 inches long and has a weight of 72 grams heavy. The repousse is deep and the patina is natural and dark in it's recesses. In some not all pictures the amethyst show internal striations when camera light was flooded upon them, but these are not cracks or pits and do not rise to the tops of the stones. They look dark in your hands with natural light. T...
