Margot’s Glow

Margot de Taxco’s motto “As the stars are to the Night, So are Jewels to the Woman” are words to live by for we who adore adornments. You can see by her work above that she strove to create works to live up to that motto. While most enamels are simply glass over metal, Margot created a more luminous effect by applying tiny bumps in the silver prior to the enameling so there is texture within the color. It is similar to the French guilloche’ technique but instead of a machine etching the silver, the pattern actually corresponds to the design, thus creating a much richer, more beautiful effect.
