Gerardo Lopez of Taxco is known for his masterful repousse and I think the necklace at hand is his most stupendous pectoral creation! Wrought out of fine, 980 grade silver its twists and twirls impart an unsurpassable sense of dynamic flow to the design. The metal’s high purity allows for a mellower patina that glows warmly and bespeaks the necklace’s rich life. Fabulous Mexican silver and an ode to Lopez’s design acumen and craftsmanship…
