Collector sterling silver, handcrafted in excellent condition brown and black enamel links 5 - 30 mm. wide. 16 inches in length.
At the peak of her career, Margot, who designed each piece herself, had two dozen silversmiths and a dozen enamellists in her employ to execute her vision. The men performed the duties as silversmiths; the women did the enamel work, using tiny brushes to bring the watercolor drawings to life. To ensure the accurate rendering of her jewelry designs, she compiled a book of instructions and drawings, detailing the construction and finishing of each. Margot attracted talented craftsmen who later went on to cement their own reputations, such as Sigi Pineda, Miguel Melendez, and Melecio Rodriguez.
