Gerardo Lopez Mexican silver repousse Bracelet ~ double Taxco fern fronds

on Nov 3, 2019 in Bracelets, Mexican and Latin American

If you follow “One Good Eye Silver”, chances are you know by now that Gerardo Lopez is one of my favorite Taxco maestros. Like the sterling silver bracelet at hand, many of his jewelry is based on Margot de Taxco and / or Los Castillo designs so I am thinking that he probably worked for either one or even both of those workshops. His mastery over the art of repoussage, his attention to detail and his impeccable finishing lend to his creations an aura that is comparable to that of the jewelry by his more famous contemporaries. I like to refer to this piece as the “double fern frond” bracelet and if I am not mistaken, it is based on a Margot original that does not come up very often. Generously wide yet not overwhelming, it is elegant, different and a pleasure to wear and to behold…
