An artist and native of San Francisco, Margot took a vacation to Taxco, Mexico in 1937 which altered the course of her life. In 1938 she met and married Don Antonio Castillo, a Maestro silversmith working for William Spratling. In 1948, Margot and Antonio split both romantically and professionally and she took on the name'Margot de Taxco.It wasnt long before she had Hollywood clientele such as John Wayne & Lana Turner. At one time, she had more than 280 talented silversmiths working for her, some of whom are very famous today.
Margot is most known for her work with enamel on silver, pre-Columbian themes, Art Deco and Japanese styles, as well as her use of fish and wave motifs. Sadly, she became insolvent in 1976 and gave her molds to her top silversmiths who went on to establish their own workshops. The Bracelet is more of a turquoise blue, but the two may certainly be worn together.
