Enrique Ledesma does not need to be introduced to the lover of vintage Mexican silver jewelry. I am sure he is also known in the circles of those who love modernist design – after all he was one of Taxco’s most inspired modernist maestros. What I particularly love about his work, however, is his superb way of marrying sterling and stone. A great lapidary, Ledesma seamlessly embeds carved golden sheen obsidian bands in architectural silver links in the bracelet at hand. Sheer minimalist perfection…
PS: An identical second bracelet is also available in my inventory – if you love pairs, just let me know!
