    I spotted this Taxco bracelet at a thrift store a while back and loved its braided vine design. It wasn't until much later that I thought to look into it. I'm only able to make out a Taxco mark but am unable to make anything else out. It was very tarnished but not green in any spots so i don't think its brass. Can anyone help?

      Taxco was a Mexican brand of silver making..very collectable and sought after.

      Thank you moonstone for your help! Does the Taxco mean it's made of silver? Thank you bratjdd,Sean,Phil,and DrFluffy for the love:)

      Taxco is actually a city in Mexico with a long history of silversmithing. There was a very rich mine near there so the price of silver was low so lots of jewelry came from there.

      These twisted bracelets are very common, probably made by a bunch of different smiths too so it would be difficult to pinpoint one. Probably silver though
