Elaborate wirework that reminds me of antique, hand-wrought garden fences and window grates characterizes this impressive Mexican Deco cuff bracelet. I have had this specific design before and was, at the time, impressed not only by its serious presence but also by the interesting way the hardiness of knots and ties combines with the softer in nature stylized heart motifs. Signed by a listed yet still unidentified Taxco maestro, this is a cuff that will stay with you for a long, long time…
