These beautiful tear drop shaped, old-looking but new Mexican earrings are reminiscent of the filagree and bead earrings from Oaxaca, but these were handmade in Taxco. The beads are either turquoise colored or lapiz blue colored. The earrings have some movement because the beads at the bottom dangle freely. Filagree designs are hand swirled, so be sure to note the amazing symmetry and design perfection. The silver has been oxidized to look old but they are newly made in Taxco. Exquisite! Silver French wire. Very light weight.
