Sterling silver and chrysoprase are combined in this 1960s-70s Erika Hult de Corral Taxco modernist brooch. Ric, as the designer signed her jewelry, studied at the Parson’s School of Design in Paris and in Mexico she worked with both Sigi Pineda and Enrique Ledesma before she opened her own workshop. In the piece at hand, she discretely juxtaposes two finishes in the silver frame, polished and brushed, with the vibrant green of the stone. Careful execution, simple yet strong lines and a sense of unimpeded motion, all characteristics of de Corral’s work, are more than evident here as well…
