Marcelo Toledo Review

Sunlight and the smell of solder fill the rooms of this old San Telmo house, which doubles up as a store and open workshop for celebrity silversmith Marcelo Toledo. A huge silver mosaic of Evita gives away who Toledo's main muse is: he has created replicas of her own jewelry (and is the only silversmith authorized by her estate to do so) as well as pieces inspired by her. Eva Duarte Perón isn't the only crowd-pleasing politician Toledo's been associated with: a local magnate commissioned cuff links as an inauguration gift to President Obama. His most recent celebrated gift was a maté designed especially for Prince William and his bride Kate Middleton.
