Mexican Silver Jewelry
Mexican silver jewelry is known all over the world for superior style and quality. It can be defined as another Mexican folk art--it's handmade, regional, and the skills to make Mexican silver jewelry are handed down from one generation to another. Taxco is probably the best known of the Mexico silver jewelry cities, but Mexican silver jewelry making thrives in many other regions. The many localized styles are hard to trace back to their precise origin, but were likely influenced by indigenous, Spanish, Chinese and Moorish traditions. Some of the traditional mestizo designs of crescent shaped (arracada) Mexican silver earrings were popularized by Frida Kahlo in a revived spirit of national pride after the revolution emancipating Mexico from Spain in 1910.
