Hector AGUILAR Taxco MEXICAN 940 Silver EARRINGS playful DANGLES design

on Aug 30, 2014 in archived


Gorgeous set of vintage Hector Aguilar earrings wrought in .940 silver that is higher in purity than sterling in a playful design with stylized dangling cascabeles. I find the combination of circles, spheres and lengths of soldered together silver wire that make up this set quite ingenious in the way it gives a mod twist to an otherwise more “ethnic”, traditional motif.

Fabulous and in a difficult to find design…
