Margot de Taxco Lapis and Jade Snake Choker
Animals have always figured as motifs in jewelry, sometimes spectacularly, sometimes humorously, and even occasionally as heraldry, always decoratively. But in the hands of the great Mexican artisans, animals in jewelry acquire another weight, another presence, that of the spirit world. And so it is with this magnificent piece by the iconic Margot de Taxco. And, as with all her pieces, it truly comes to life when a woman wears it. Absolutely nonpareil, fit to stand comparison with the work of any of the world's classic jewelers.
