Traditional Mexican Silver Jewelry

These are silver earrings with the exception of the lower right corner. That’s a very long necklace made of nickel silver.

Most people know that Mexico is famous for silver jewelry and most people associate that jewelry with Taxco. Taxco is a mecca for silver lovers–the streets are lined with silver shops. But did you know that there are other cities in Mexico that are home to silver artisans?  Mexico City, Puebla, Oaxaca and several other towns are home to many men and women who make traditional hammered and filigree silver earrings like their predecessors learned from the Spanish conquerors.  The craftsmanship of these silver earrings is exquisite. Some of them have clips and others are for pierced ears.
