Kahlo’s life began and ended in Mexico City, in her home known as the Blue House.” Frida is best know for her self portraits of pain, passion and color. The Sterling Silver Real Flower Frida Kahlo Pendants are carefully crafted by a talented artisans of Taxco, Mexico, Margarito Santos and his crew.
Handcrafted Real Flower Pendants are made with .925 sterling silver and durable clear resin for encasing and preserving the flowers. The flowers are real flowers grown without fertilizers or pesticides. Earrings are made through cottage industry in Taxco Mexico. Margarito Santos and his brother started the business and with a small team of workers they grow the flowers and make the jewelry in their homes, encasing and preserving the flowers.

The entire process, right from growing the flowers to setting them into resin and producing the final pieces of jewelry, is carried out in the Santos brothers’ family homes and gardens.
Margarito’s outside terraces and gardens are covered with pots of plants bursting with an amazing medley of colorful flowers. Once the flowers are ready, they are picked and taken indoors to be dried. Margarito, his brother and various family members then meticulously place the flowers into pretty and creative designs and set with resin into the silver.
