Description

Description

This sterling silver hinged bangle bracelet was made in the 1960 to 1970s in Taxco, Mexico by maker TC-70.

According to mexicansilverstore.com, the Aztecs made silver jewelry, but the Spanish in Taxco were mainly after raw silver. So how did modern day Taxco become famous for its jewelry?

It started in the 1920s, when an American named William Spratling moved to Mexico after befriending and working with Diego Rivera.

As an architecture professor and artist, Spratling was fascinated by pre-Colombian and Aztec art, and used it as inspiration for his silver jewelry designs. As Spratling and his jewelry became more and more successful, he started teaching local aspiring silver designers how to produce his designs. He even created an apprenticeship program for local aspiring jewelry makers.

His influence on the community and his love for traditional Mexican designs earned him the nickname El Padre de la Plata de México (“The Father of Mexican Silver”).

In the “Letter and number” system a letter identifies a location (T for Taxco, M for Mexico City), the second letter is the first letter of an individual’s first or last name of the maker. The number is the number of registration of the maker.

This bangle measures 7 3/4″ around. The markings are clearly visible and it will come with a polishing cloth. It’s very comfortable to wear.

Sterling Professionally appraised at $75
