Lovers of vintage Mexican silver jewelry recognize Maciel and Sanborn’s for their repousse cuff bracelets. In this Sanborn’s example the three rose decoration stands out against a stippled and oxidized bacground. I love the bracelet’s undulating perimeter and the great patina it has developed over time.
