Most commonly found with turquoise cabs this type of Mexican Deco silver hinged bracelets is among the most sought after designs. Made up of rows and rows of repousse semi-spheres and overlaid with additional rows of bezel-set stone or glass cabochons, they are a pleasure to wear and they have a powerful visual impact. The medium-width example I am presenting here is rather more difficult to come upon because the cabs are made of black glass. When one thinks about it, what color combination is more Deco than silver and black?
