on Oct 29, 2014 in archived



Early Los Castillo sterling silver repousse clamper bracelet in the most iconic, most classic Taxco motif, the “fern”. A design that has been produced by many maestros, both known and anonymous ones, its version by the Los Castillo workshop will sweep you off your feet. Substantial weight, deep and daring repousse and dramatic oxidation underline why all “fern” clampers are not equal. Masterful…
