Taxco, Mexico

“Silver Town”

 

We love Mexico.  The people, the food, the climate!  And so many wonderful products.  Mexican glassware, tile, blankets, baskets, beautiful hand crafts, and of course, silver.

 

Who doesn’t love Mexican silver!  Anyone who has ever visited Mexico will know, beautifully crafted silver jewellery is one of the most recognized of fine exports available throughout much of the country.  In most major cities and tourist areas you will find retail shops dedicated to sale of silver, and at beachside resorts everywhere, you find vendors offering their wares… always, “ at a special price for you, my friend” ….

 

The majority of silver jewellery sold throughout Mexico is crafted in and around the city of Taxco.  Taxco, known as the “Silver Town”, is the old historic silver mining town located in the state of Guerrero, in Central Mexico.   Today, there is very little mining activity, but the tradition of silvermaking and of art of fine jewellery craftsmanship remains and continues to thrive.
