Jose Luis Flores Mexican silver Necklace ~ modernist Taxco mask design

on Jul 4, 2019 in archived

A talented Taxco maestro who worked for Aguilar as well as Miguel and Emma Melendez, Jose Luis Flores was best when he delved into the world of modernist design. Yet it is not only design that makes his jewelry desirable – it is also craftsmanship of the highest level and attention to finishing and detail. Minimalist masks, the links comprising the necklace presented here are created with clever cut-outs, beading and layering. Simple yet not simplistic…
