The second Margot de Taxco zodiac piece currently in my inventory, this Libra pendant has all the qualities of her astrological series; visual interest, sculpturality and a design so successful that it immediately relates to the sign it represents. I have paired it with a hand-wrought Mexican chain of the same period so you can wear it as a necklace or alternatively, enjoy it as a charm with your vintage charm bracelet...

Margot de Taxco's zodiac charms are among collectors' favorites yet to find a complete charm bracelet, with both components bearing her signature is much more difficult than getting the charm alone. I am therefore thrilled to offer this hefty Aquarius example here. Just take a look at the gorgeous, generous sterling links - they provide the perfect accompaniment to show off the voluptuousness of the astrological sign's figural representation. And let me mention that the patina is to die for...

Now that prices have adjusted themselves and we can actually start thinking about owning one of these spectacular early Deco repousse cuff bracelets, I am thrilled to present you with this "triple bloom" example! Confident repoussage that becomes even more dramatic with the patina that the piece acquired over the years, the bracelet has strong presence and is beautifully proportioned, with good width and heavy as well...

If there is a Taxco classic, then I would suggest that Spratling's "Hands and Tulips" design is definitely a good contender for the title! Influenced by Mexico's Spanish Colonial tradition, the floral and figural motif combination has an Old World romantic feel to it yet the chunky amethyst carvings also bestow it a distinctly Mexican flair. Infinitely popular, the design has been emulated by many maestros, both listed and unknown ones, and has also been created without any signature at all, ...

Easily recognized as one of Margot de Taxco's most architectural designs, the "cornucopia" clamper at hand is signed by Hilario Lopez, a maestro who had worked for Margot at her taller, known for his exceptional emulations of her pieces. In a rare, smaller size this bracelet is indeed a masterpiece of repousse with incredible three-dimensional presence and rich, warmly glowing patina. Voluptuous swirls and pronounced beading adorn the two "wings" and the hinge is in perfect condition,snapp...

Just like its matching necklace also available in my inventory (look for listing 1218736, please) this Antonio Pineda design bracelet is simply marked with Eagle 1 assay number alongside "TAXCO MEXICO 925". Here too the repousse setting envelopes chunky chrysoprase cabochons in a stylized row of cool greens and mellow silver...

One of the few females of Taxco - at least, one of the few whose name we actually know - Erika Hult de Corral 's creations can be impressive, exhibiting genuine creativity and a certain sense of comfort within the realm of modernist design. I particularly like her "moonscape" pieces, partly because I first learned about her years ago when I happened upon such a necklace and earrings set by her...

A silversmith whose work is not frequently encountered, E. Byrne Livingston is among the American artists who contributed to the creation of the country's unique Machine Age aesthetic. A New Yorker, she worked primarily in the 1930s and 1940s and some of her creations are among the holdings of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The brooch presented here is characteristic of its period and the specific artistic climate within which it was created...

Charm bracelets are one of the most popular forms of jewelry throughout the world - they never stay out of fashion for long and they come in all kinds of materials, styles and sizes. This year, it seems that they are on the up and up again yet whether fashionable or not, I simply adore them! Discretely elegant the example presented here is a Mexican creation from the Deco years and it has an astrological theme. The 12 zodiac signs are presented in relief against highly oxidized backgrounds an...

You will love the patina on this piece; it is just what you want to see on a well-cared for bracelet from the opening decades of Taxco's 20th c. revival. A Margot de Taxco / Los Castillo design, it combines repousse semi-spheres with stylized feather motifs yet this example is not signed. I suspect, however, that it might be an Antonio Reina creation...

Easily recognizable as a design associated with Fred Davis's early years, the beaded links motif has become an Mexican Silver Renaissance classic. There is something about the layers of perfect repousse semi-spheres that attracts the eye and these pieces wear so comfortably that resisting them is almost .....

An early Deco Mexico City bracelet with curved links made out of medium thickness silver sheet adorned with cutwork in an intricate pre-Colombian design. There are four links to this piece (the safety chain prevented me from laying it out flat to photograph) and they feel very comfortable around the wrist, easily conforming to your every move. The bracelet has an inner circumference of 7 1/4" (clasped) and it is 1 1/2" wide (at its widest)...

Simply marked with Eagle 3 assay number alongside "TAXCO MEXICO 925" a vintage mod necklace in emulation of Antonio Pineda's similar design combining sterling with chunky oval chrysoprase gems. Like stylized leaves or waves, the repousse setting tenderly hugs the stones that are otherwise held in a raised sterling frame...

Early Deco repousse silver bracelet in the so-called Mexico City style, very reminiscent of Matilde Poulat's first creations. Classically "archeological" in inspiration, the mask bracelet presented here has the hand-crafted characteristics that are so unique to the genre: textured repoussage, an almost naive approach to finishing, a motif that comes out of Mexico's pre-Colombian past and a primordial appeal that becomes more potent the longer one looks at the piece. The bracelet measures 7...

A trained painter and sculptor, Enrique Ledesma became one of the foremost modernist designers in Mexico's 20th c. Silver Renaissance. Many of his pieces were sold through Plateria Cortes and the brooch presented here is just such an example. Generous in size, it combines oxidation and overlay with deep chasing on heavy gauge silver sheet and epitomizes Ledesma's sense of fluidity and abstraction in the best possible way...

Superb vintage studio modernist ring wrought out of sterling silver and adorned with one of the most amazing, deeply purple amethyst stones I have ever seen. The color in this gem is so intense that it looks almost black at times! I could never exaggerate the beauty of the abstract setting (or should I call it biomorphic?) with its tendrils undulating and lovingly enveloping the stone. The ring is a comfortable sz 6.25, easily re-sizeable by your jeweler. Its face is 1" by 3/4" and when worn, it...

An unsigned beauty from Taxco's early "glorious" days, this clamper bracelet is a celebration of masterful repoussage, beading and oxidized hand-chasing. The sense of movement that emanates from the twisting and twirling scroll-work is powerful and the glow of its repousse semi-spheres and little beads is warm with the love that the bracelet has enjoyed over the years. With an inner circumference of 6 3/4" (perfect for smaller to medium wrists but adjustable to fit bigger sizes) it has a width ...
