Jewellery with Charm

 

Mexican miracle charms: can be used as a way to focus on an area of concern to say thanks or for beseeching serendipity or guidance and offered up in church along with prayers. Mexicans use these as well as the Spanish, Italians and Eastern Orthodox.

Beadwork: The bead work necklaces are a highly skilled art form from the artist shamans in Mexico.

Flowers with Resin:The resin flower jewellery is a specialty art of Mexico. Holy Kitsch! purchases from a Mex-pat whose family lives in Mexico raising the tiny wildflowers in a glass house then finely making the jewellery.

Silver: Mexico has a long tradition of high quality silver work and many artists from the fifties gained fame for their jewellery designs. Prior we see more the kind of necklaces Frida chose to wear. In the present artists still work with silver and also work re-cycled silver. Many of the miracle charms are made from silver.
