Stunning Mexican Sterling Silver Enamel Clip on Earrings Attributed to Margot De Taxco
 
Beautiful stylised swirl design attributed to Margot De Taco also known as Margot Van Voorhies Carr around 1960's, Made in Mexico and stamped with Taxco Mexico Sterling and MA.  Miguel Arias worked for Margo in her jewellery studio and it is possible, he was the maker of this piece under the direction of Margo.  After her company went into arrears, Margot also allowed the artists working for her to use her molds as repayment for money owing.  Margot De Taxco Jewellery has become highly collectable as her artistic flair and use of enamel really set her apart from her contemporaries.  Though born in America Margo moved to Mexico to live in 1937 and then set up her Jewellery studio in Taxco with her second husband, Antonio Castillo.  Margot's work was heavily influenced by Japanese design, pre-columbian and mexican design as well as the Art deco movement.  The colour of the champlevé enamel is baby blue with white flecks, which adds a textural dimension to the earrings. This style is very similar to other pieces of Margot's work but is not signed by Margo and instead is stamped with MA, this makes sense as there were several artists working with Margot around this time.  The earrings are in good condition for their age.
