This is a STUPENDOUS sterling silver bracelet that was hand wrought in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, circa 1960's to 1970's, by renowned silver designer and artist, CARMEN BECKMANN. Ms. Beckmann was an active designer and artist as early as the mid 1950's. She is known for producing refined artistic jewelry that was of the highest quality. This bracelet is masterfully crafted in timeless and elegant motif that is quite dramatic! It is made of heavy gauge sterling silver with interlocking thick oval links. Every other link is adorned with MAGNIFICENT opals ~ the first opal link has three stones, oval, marquise shaped and round ~ the second opal link has a large rectangular opal ~ the third opal link has an oval opal ~ and the last opal link has a retangular and an oval opal. PLEASE be sure to supersize the photos to fully appreciate the extreme beauty and intense fire deep within the opal stones. The silver has acquired a beautiful, soft patina that reflects the shadows created by the depth of the designs. The clasp is a tongue and box closure that works perfectly and closes with a crisp 'click' ~ there was once a safety chain. This bracelet is bold and beautiful ~ it is extremely well made and crafted in a sophisticated and majestic design ~ designed and made by CARMEN BECKMANN ~ it is heirloom and collector quality, quite simply, THE BEST!!!

SIZE: Inside circumference when closed is 7", width is 1", and weight is 110 grams.

CONDITION: Excellent vintage condition ~ no dents or dings to the silverwork or copperwork ~ no chips, cracks or damage to opals ~ no damage noted ~ minor scratches due to loving wear and age ~ just about PERFECT used condition!

HALLMARKS: "BECKMANN, STERLING, MEXICO". CARMEN BECKMANN is shown on pages 26 in Bille Hougart's highly respected source book, The Little Book of Mexican Silver Trade and Hallmarks (2013 edition). BILLE HOUGART'S NEW 3RD EDITION IS NOW AVAILABLE HERE ON FROM SELLER "CICATRIX!" OR AT YOUR FAVORITE ONLINE OR BRICKS & MORTAR BOOK STORE!

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.

Please email me with any questions and check out my other sales. I try to list new treasures several times per week ~ all of my sales begin and end in five minute intervals, beginning at 9PM ET. Thanks for your interest!
