Mexico is famous for its silver, and the most celebrated craftsmanship still comes from the town of Taxco, near Mexico City. One of Taxco's most famous design houses, Los Castillos, creates the majority of the products for sale at this shop, from earrings to anklets and everything in between. Platters and service pieces, some with precious stones, have a distinctly Mexican flair—though there are some oddities here, too. Is that a silver toast rack, embellished with chameleons, or an elegant taco holder?
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
