I am very excited to present here a Deco Mexican sterling silver necklace bearing the signature of Doris and Corpus Artisans. Difficult to find, extremely well crafted, with superb finishing and great design, Doris jewelry is on the rise and the necklace at hand is a fine example of their work. Exceptionally elegant, it has great detail and oxidation that accentuates the three-dimensional quality of the trumpet vine links and it sits gracefully around the neck. The necklace is 15 1/2" long (dif...

Massive Los Ballesteros "polka dot" hinged bangle bracelet, this is an iconic, published design for the famous Taxco workshop. True to the spirit of the early modernism of the 1940s, the dots are here made of black lucite and they are in great shape, lustrous and seamlessly laid into the silver. Definitely a bracelet with a huge "bang" factor it has an inner circumference of 6 3/4" (clasped; 2 1/4" inside diameter), its width varies between 1 3/8" and 7/8" and it weighs a hefty 123.6 grams. I...

An early design by the Los Castillo taller, the fish skeleton is considered a classic and has seen many emulations and reproductions over the years. The hinged bracelet at hand, wrought out of thick silver sheet with copper bead accents, is a modernist treasure that was made for small wrists. Ideal for all of us who love vintage Mexican clampers but can never enjoy them because they are usually too big, the bracelet has a 5 3/4" inner circumference with its width varying between 1 7/8" (at the f...

One of Salvador Teran’s signature designs, the Archer makes for a dramatic, show-stopping bracelet.

It is signed with maker’s signature in script as shown as well as “STERLING MEXICO” and des. no 157...

Vintage Los Castillo Mexican silver necklace in a classic Taxco repousse design with riveted leaf-form links.

A must-have for the discerning collector and well-dresser alike it measures a wearable 15" long and is 5/8" wide weighing a generous 93.4 grams. It is fully and appropriately signed with the taller's name as well as Eagle 15 assay m...

Slick, modernist Sigi Pineda sterling silver and pearls cuff bracelet, the two pearls lifted above their oxidized background and showcased in a shadow-box asymmetrical opening. This is Sigi at one of his best moments, I believe, the choice of materials a favorite of mine and a combination that Antonio Pineda also benefited from during his career. The cuff has an inner circumference of 6 3/4" (including the 1 3/8" gap) and its width reaches 1 1/16" at center front. It is signed with Sigi's sig...

Based on the dramatic contrast of highly polished silver against dark, oxidized backgrounds, Sigi's jewelry is eye-catching without having to be burdensomely elaborate. The necklace at hand illustrates, I believe, my assertion in the best possible way. Gorgeous, a pleasure to wear and to behold, and a true Tasco (sic) modernist treasure. It measures just shy of 16" long (wearable) with the central mirrored part of it being 4" wide and 1" tall (at its tallest); the width of the chain itself is 5/...

Iconic Abraham Paz silver and black onyx bracelet in the “shields” design, this is not an easy to find piece and I am thrilled to be offering it here. The epitome of Mexican Deco, Paz’s creations appeared also with Fred Davis’s hallmarks but the example at hand bears Paz’s own signature. Measuring 7 1/4″ long (wearable; actual length 7 1/2″) by 1 1/8″ wide the bracelet weighs 43.2 grams and is signed with maker’s initials “AP” as shown as well as “STERLING...

Generous in length yet still very gracious in its proportions the early Mexican Deco silver and amethyst necklace presented here is perfect for those of us who love pectorals yet prefer them to be more modest than their often exuberant repousse counter-parts. Carefully hand-cut and chased the silver sheet forming the necklace's body is adorned with semi-spheres and boasts three luscious oval cabochons and a smaller one nested in the playful dangle. The stones have natural fissures and clouding f...

Early Mexican Deco sterling silver repousse bracelet by M. Velazquez in a bold floral design whose central link is set with a beautiful turquoise cabochon. There is almost no information about maestro Velazquez other than his hallmarks which put him right at the opening decades of Mexico's 20th c. Silver Renaissance. Yet the inherent quality of his pieces and his style that follows that of Matilde Poulat makes his jewelry excellent alternatives to Matl's creations. The bracelet at hand measures ...

Margot de Taxco's des. no 5120, the repousse "wings with beading" seesm to be one of those classic designs that keep their popularity through the decades. Elegant, masterfully crafted and carefully finished, it lends itself to literally any kind of outfit and is as comfortable to wear as it is a treat to the eye. The necklace here has a wearable length of at least 15" though it might feel even a little roomier due to the curve of its central station. It is 1/2" wide and so are the earrings, whos...

Margot de Taxco's zodiac jewelry, especially her big, sculptural charms, represent some of her best work, in my opinion, and I am happy to offer this vintage Archer bracelet with both the charm and the chunky chain signed by her. I am particularly fond of this specific chain whose three-dimensional quality is more pronounced than that of the more often seen, flatter chains - I think it complements the figure's quintessentially Deco lines in the best possible way. The bracelet measures 7 7/8" lo...

One of the best vintage 1950s Taxco sterling silver and stone necklaces I have seen, this chunky, spectacular piece is accompanied by matching dangle earrings. Classy cylinder-and-box construction, only here the colors in the azur-malachite are to die for and the heft of the box links gently softened by geometric cut-outs. The necklace is 18 1/8" long (wearable; once clasped it gains a little and goes up to 18 1/2") with the cylinder links being approx. 5/16" in diameter and the boxes 7/8" lo...

Deco Mexican silver repousse cuff bracelet in the style associated with Maciel and Sanborn's this is an anonymous piece yet possible the most massive, jaw-dropping example I have ever had. Hand-wrought out of thick sterling sheet, its repoussage is bold and perfect, Aztec roses, leaves and branches taking up almost the entire surface. At 3 5/8" wide, this is a cuff for the daring female and an early Mexican masterpiece. Its inner circumference is 7 1/2" (including the 1 1/16" gap) and it weig...

Early Taxco sterling silver repousse bracelet signed by one of those telented maestros whose jewelry is widely appreciated for its quality yet are still among the "unsung" protagonists of Mexico's 20th c. Silver Renaissance. This is a real masterpiece - not only in the complexity and vibrancy of its design but also in the perfection of its execution. Patina, oxidation, bold relief and dark recesses, all come together in a celebration of Taxco silversmithing. The cuff has an inner circumference j...

One of Taxco's most impressive and complex repousse designs, the lily motif of this superb Mexican Deco cuff bracelet is one of the most elusive and hence sought-after creations. Pieces in this design are some times found with the signature of Doris / Corpus Artisans or Miguel Melendez and I have sold examples by both in the past. Yet the cuff at hand bears the initials of a listed but still unidentified maestro - and it is spectacular not just in the beauty of its floral synthesis but also in i...

Gorgeous Enrique Ledesma Taxco modernist necklace seamlessly marrying sterling silver with azurite in the maestro's signature style. The stone is rich in green hues and the necklace looks perfect accompanied by its matching bracelet with which it is pictured in the first photo (also available on this site). Quite often Ledesma's necklaces are relatively short but the example at hand has a custom-made extender that adds valuable length to it making it comfortable for most of us. The extension is ...

Early, "unsigned" Taxco beauties are one of my passion and I am thrilled to present this stunning necklace here! I could never exaggerate the visual impact this piece has - just look at the wide links, the deep recesses in the repoussage, the accent beading, the perfect oxidation. Worthy of the best of collections, the necklace measures a wearable 15 3/4" long (quite comfortable for most of us; actual length is 16 1/8") and its width is 1 1/4". It weighs a good 68.3 grams and is simply marked...
