Mexican Jewelry

Front Cover
University of Texas Press, 1983 - Antiques & Collectibles - 278 pages
Mexico's streams give forth cool green jade and rich gold; her shores provide coral and dainty pearls. Her brown hills yield silver and copper and gems whose colors form a dazzling palette for the jeweler. And Mexico has never lacked the artists to mold her abundant jewels into finished pieces of beauty. In this enjoyable volume, Mary L. Davis and Greta Pack introduce us to the splendors of Mexican jewelry. First published nearly four decades ago, Mexican Jewelry has become a classic introduction to the richness and variety of this Mexican folk art.
