Carmen Beckmann (???? – ????) Carmen Beckmann sold jewelry from a shop she owned and operated out of her home in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico from the 1950’s through the 1970’s. Experts believe her jewelry was produced by multiple silversmiths and her hallmark affixed to the jewelry.
Her work often draws on pre-Columbian designs presented in modernist contexts. She is known for necklaces, rings, pins, brooches, and earrings that employ silver and copper decorated with jade and other semi-precious stones.
It is not entirely clear what role she played in the design of work she sold, but her mark on sterling silver jewelry indicates a collectible piece.
