Erika Hult de Corral Ric Mexican silver modernist Bracelet

on Jun 3, 2020 in Bracelets, Mexican and Latin American

Perfect for medium to smaller wrists, this modernist Erika Hult de Corral bracelet was made in Taxco in the 1960s-70s. One of the few female contributors to Mexico’s 20th c. Silver Renaissance that we know of, de Corral studied at the Parson’s School of Design in Paris. An award-winning designer, she worked with Sigi Pineda and Enrique Ledesma before opening her own workshop. Always within the scope of modernism, her jewelry is impeccably crafted, with high quality materials and when they don’t flirt with brutalism, they impart a strong sense of liquid, unimpeded movement. I would put the bracelet at hand in that second category and add tactile scrulpturality and an eye-catching splash of warm color in the striated brown agate…
