Exquisitely crafted Miguel Martinez vintage Mexican silver bracelet in a “flower and bead” design evocative of similar Danish jewelry, especially creations by George Jensen. I consider Martinez one of the most talented Taxco maestros and I particularly love his work that veers away from the “classic” Mexican design vernacular to explore Scandinavian naturalism, like here, or modernism. Perfectly finished, a dream to wear as its articulated construction allows the bracelet to conform to the wrist’s movement, this is a piece that defies the whims of time and fashion…
Size/Weight: 6 1/2″ long (wearable; total length is 7″ but there is a hook clasp); floral link at center front just shy of 2” tall by 1 1/8” wide; width at the chain varies between 7/8” (next to flower) and 1/2”; 39.0 grams
Hallmarks / Date: fully hallmarked with Miguel’s name as well as “925 STERLING MEXICO”; pre-1948
Condition: excellent vintage with no damage or repairs noted, fantastic patina and the high level of craftsmanship that all Miguel pieces exhibit
