Spratling Inspired Silver Jewelry

William Spratling is the father of Mexican silver jewelry. His designs used wholesale silver chains as well as oxidized silver pieces incorporated into carvings inspired by pre-Colombian art. The town of Taxco and its silver economy would be very different without the help of William Spratling. He recognized the importance of the culture of silversmithing and formed artistic silversmith shops to bring Taxco silver into the forefront of silver jewelry making.

The first design inspired by William Spratling is a period necklace that is now available as a model to produce fine jewelry at wholesale jewelry supply stores. When first produced, this piece was featured in Spratling's wholesale .925 silver jewelry catalogues.

In June 1931, Spratling had one silversmith, Artemio Navarrete who created silver jewelry form Spratling's designs. Using wholesale silver chains as part of the pieces, Spratling's designs began an industry that was based on an apprentice system. Within two years Spratling would have two more master silversmiths and a dozen apprentices. Spratling's business was growing and silver designs were being produced.
Using wholesale jewelry suppliers from the United States, unique pieces of jewelry were hammered out and utilized the natural gemstones and stones from the area where unique silver rings were created. Spratling did not use the oxidized silver methods as often as some of his successors, but now some of his pieces have oxidized to the gorgeous dark patina of fine antique jewelry.

If you are looking for 100% authentic Spratling inspired or Spratling manufactured pieces, you can find these pieces marked with his primary hallmark or name and initials that were popular in that time period. If the silversmiths left enough flat apace on the jewelry piece a silver content mark was included. During Spratling's early years a marking of the place of design was also included. The styles of hallmarks changed over Spratling's thirty six year career and to find the best Spratling pieces you may have to do extensive research.

Taxco, Mexico claims to be the foundation of sterling silver. Mexican sterling silver has been traced to the days of Cortez who trekked across the Mexican peninsula in the 16th century. In Taxco Cortex staked his claim on the silver mines that were prevalent in the hills surrounding a very small village.  Silver was quickly found to be perfect for jewelry making and by the17th century Taxco’s sterling silver adorned the royals of England, France, Spain and Germany. Unfortunately the mining industry of Taxco lapsed into obscurity by the 18th century.

In the 1930s William Spratling arrived in Taxco and began encouraging the locals to develop silversmithing talents. This was the beginning of modern Taxco silver and Spratling’s designs are still copied because of their authenticity and uniqueness.
