These intricate silver filigree earrings were handmade in Oaxaca, Mexico, and were made by an artisan I was introduced to there named, Cesar. Work in filigree is very traditional to this part of Mexico and was brought to Mexico by the Spanish after the conquest. Cesar takes silver threads and coils them into intricate designs. Accessories like these silver filigree earrings by Cesar were favorites of Frida Kahlo, the famous surrealist painter, and often part of her traditional Tehuana attire which is from a region in the state of Oaxaca.
