Catalogue Note

"I send you, on your day of days, a pair of tiny gold drop earrings for your beautiful little ears. Each time you put them on remember that in the distant Coyoacanes there is someone that loves you very much, for three reasons: first, for being yourself, second, for being the daughter of Don Pelelico, and third, for being so pretty. It's not your fault and neither mine for loving you so much. Your Frida."
