My name is Margarita and I have been living in upstate New York since the summer of 1997. One could describe me as "an escaped academician" - a historian by training who decided not to pursue an academic career.
More than ten years ago, I stumbled upon my first "lot" of vintage Mexican silver jewelry at a local auction and lost my heart for ever. So here I am today with my own website, One Good Eye Silver, and "cyber presence" on Trocadero, Ebay and Etsy.
I guess my fascination with Mexican silver jewelry is informed by my love of history and research. This blog is a result of both. I would be thrilled if it became a venue for me and everybody else who shares that fascination to revel in our new discoveries, pose and answer our questions and, why not, get to know each other a little better.
