Deco Miguel Martinez Mexican sterling silver Bracelet ~ Taxco floral repousse

on Jun 14, 2017 in archived

Matching the necklace that is also available on my site as you can see, a difficult to find, early Miguel Martinez sterling silver bracelet featuring a stunning lily as its centerpiece. Martinez’s uncontested talent elevated him to the position of chief designer for Rancho Alegre and his jewelry is always impeccably finished, creatively designed and made using materials of the highest quality. Here, the a-symmetry in the positioning of the links that flank the flower alludes to Japanese aesthetics yet the bold fleshiness of the repoussage is unmistakably Mexican…
