The Virgen de Guadalupe, milagros, sacred hearts and images are all artistic motifs used in Mexican folk art in every state in Mexico.
The Christmas decorations of Mexico vary by region but are always colorful and festive whether made of tin, paper, wood, textiles or clay.

Another beautiful and ornate sterling silver earring made by Taxco artisans about 3 hours south of Mexico City. This is a very pretty traditional earring, modeled after those of the Mazahua, with a flower at the top, attached to some cup dangles and a silver "gote" or drop in the middle. The gote is surrounded by delicate filagree and then just to add a little more movement to the earring, there are cup dangles at the bottom. It has a slight patina, making it look old. Imagine making the filagree exact with a small pliers and you'll have an appreciation of how much time and care goes into these handmade earrings! This is a large earring but very light weight.
