Matching the "comma" necklace that is also available in my store, this sterling silver and golden sheen obsidian bracelet is perfect for the medium to smaller wrist. Perfectly executed, the repousse links glow with a warm, silky patina and the volcanic glass each one of them holds reveals shimmering depths when the light hits it at the correct angle...

I love these Mexican Deco "berries-on-a-branch" brooches! They are big and impressive and the berries come in different colors depending on the kind of agate used. I am always on the look-out for the best examples, the ones in which the silver branches are hefty and interestingly entwined and the berries made of good quality stone, rich in striations and color-variation...

The work of the late silver designer, Antonio Pineda is more consistently architectural in style than that of his Mexican contemporaries. This fabulous bracelet exemplifies that brilliant aspect of his work. The bracelet consists of seven silver balls, including one that is incorporated as part of the clasp. Around the balls are flat half circles that can pivot around the balls. The bracelet weighs a substantial 111 grams...

Antonio Pineda's "comma" parure is one of the book-pieces for Taxco modernism. Concave repousse "comma" links, each one accented by a stone cabochon, beguilingly wrap around the neck and hug the wrist. The design's appeal is evidenced by the fact that many of Antonio's contemporaries took advantage of its success and came up with their own versions. Signed by a listed yet still unidentified Taxco maestro, this example is adorned with golden sheen obsidian cabochons...

Ornate and beautifully made, with a fantastic patina that makes the juxtaposition between the darkened recesses of the design and the glowing raised surfaces even more dramatic, this ornate and difficult-to-find Mexican silver ring is signed by Gerardo Lopez. I consider Lopez one of Taxco's foremost maestros in the art of repoussage and the ring at hand is, I believe, a telling example. I will let the photos continue the story... Currently a sz 4.75 US, it can be easily re-sized by a jeweler. It...

Antique plique a jour (translucent enamel) jewels are hard to come by these days – they are somewhat fragile and rare, and we believe that many of them are now in private collections. This lovely maple leaf pin is highlighted with paste accent stones along the main veins. The green plique is a very nice rich color. It seems to be missing one leaf. However, someone filled the space with a pretty drop made of green agate, so the loss is hardly noticeable. It is centered by a faux pearl. The pliq...
