Margot de Taxco’s des. no 5240 is often referred to by lovers of Mexican jewelry as the “owl” and it is considered a true “classic”. It can be found with different stones, art glass and in all silver but I think, being partial to amethyst, the present is my favorite combination. This is not a huge piece yet the impeccable craftsmanship in the execution of its repoussage, the micro-beading, the fantastic patina all combine to create a visually strong, timelessly elegant bracelet. I particularly love the fact that the links alternate facing in opposite directions and also that this beauty wears like a dream…
