Salvador Teran Mexican silver biomorphic Earrings

on Jul 25, 2020 in Mexican and Latin American, Rings/earrings

Biomorphic sterling silver appliques on a highly oxidized “puffy” background take center-stage in this modernist Mexican set of Salvador Teran earrings. I grew up close to the sea so to my eyes, it’s little crabs catching a bit of sun on mossy beach pebbles that are pictured here but your mind’s eye might see something entirely different. Precious like all Salvador jewelry, beautifully made, not entirely identical as is the case with hand-wrought pieces of wearable art. Bottom-line? Irresistible…
