ERIKA HULT DE CORRAL VTG TAXCO MEXICO MEXICAN STERLING SILVER MODERNIST NECKLACE


Description

This is an EXTRAORDINARY vintage sterling silver necklace that was hand wrought in Taxco, Mexico, after 1978, by master silver artist, ERIKA HULT de CORRAL. Erika Hult de Corral is an award winning designer and silver artisan. She studied at the Parsons School of Design in Paris, France. After working with Sigi Pineda and Enrique Ledesma, she opened her own shop. This necklace is masterfully crafted in a bold and beautiful modernist motif. The sculptural central pendant (6-1/8" long and width/drop of 3-1/2") is made of heavy gauge sterling silver in a biomorphic design with a brass accent in the center and two brass accents on the top portion of the side designs ~ the designs are interwoven and ovelapping. There are oval and rectangular incised sterling links on either side of the central pendant that complete the necklace. The central pendant and links connect as part of the design which gives the necklace beautiful, uninterrupted design flow. The clasp is a tongue ann box closure that works perfectly and closes with a crisp 'click' ~ there is a sterling safety catch. The silver has acquired a wonderful, soft patina that reflects the shadows created by the depth of the designs. This exceptional necklace is extremely well made in an artistic and audacious motif ~ designed and made by ERIKA HULT de CORRAL ~ it is collector and heirloom quality, quite simply,THE BEST!!!

SIZE: Inside circumference when closed is 16-3/4", width/drop is 3-1/2", width of side links is 1/2", and weight is 58.5 grams.

CONDITION: Excellent vintage condition ~ no dings/dents to the silverwork ~ minor scratches consistent with normal wear and age ~ no damage noted ~ just about PERFECT used condition!

HALLMARKS: "RIC (script), TR-26, 925, TAX, MEX". ERIKA HULT de CORRAL is shown on page 53 in Bille Hougart's highly respected source book,The Little Book of Mexican Silver Trade and Hallmarks(2006 edition).

PLEASE NOTE: For Mexican jewelry artists and designers, silver is their canvas. In their hands, craft meets creativity and silver becomes wearable art. The various techniques are like a painter’s brushstrokes ~ they make each piece unique and a timeless object of beauty. Mexican vintage silver jewelry is handwrought, and therefore, not perfect ~ each piece will have variances that indicate that the piece is hand made. Vintage pieces will show various signs of wear since they have been pre-loved ~ items are described to the best of my ability and any damage will be noted.
