C. Molina is an early Mexican maestro about whom we don’t know much but his mastery of the art of cutwork is becoming all the more appreciated. His silver work is so elaborate and his jewelry – which does not surface very often – so monumental in proportions that it is creating a steady following among collectors and discerning “well dressers” alike. The double-dangle earrings I am presenting here are stupendous and I particularly love the addition of the mask at the top.
