Los Castillo Mexican silver mozaico Azteca Earrings

on Nov 26, 2019 in archived

Sweet-as-can-be Los Castillo sterling silver earrings in a leaf and bead design executed employing the mozaico Azteca technique. Azur-malachite, the stone used for the inlay here, is one of my favorite stones. I find the mixing of saturated blues and greens rich and pleasing to the eye and here the two colors are complemented by an earthy khaki/brown as well. Beautifully made as all Los Castillo jewelry are the earrings have presence and are easy to wear…
