In the early 1970's, Donna De Garcia traveled to Puebla, Mexico to study Latin American Studies. Her time spent in Mexico blossomed into the discovery and an ultimate love affair of the beautiful, exquisite, and expansive jewelry collections of Taxco, Mexico. After years living in Mexico, Donna decided in was time to share her discoveries and begin importing the contemporary and old Mexican silver jewelry designs and arts she found so spectacular. Initially, distributed to upscale department stores and boutiques such as Nordstrom, I-Magnin, Museum Stores, but after 8 years, the need to settle down influenced her decision to develop a retail outlet for her business. She established Blanca Flor in 1993.
