DESCRIPTION:

This is a very exquisite bracelet that must not be overlooked! This piece of Native American jewelry is Zuni hand crafted by artist J. Effie Calavaza, out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise stones. The bracelet has a total of ELEVEN stones, SEVEN of which are delicately set in hand cut bezels in the midst of two gorgeous silver snake designs, while the other FOUR are inlaid and create the snakes' eyes. Silver beads and imprinted designs can be seen accenting the snake designs for a wonderful finish. The snake is found in many healing and fertility rituals. It is also connected with lightning, speed, and being able to move undetected. The bracelet is stamped Zuni and is hallmarked.

Turquoise is the birthstone of December. It is believed that turquoise tends to bring good fortune, strength and helps overcome illness. Turquoise got its name from the Levantine traders called Turks who brought the stone to Europe from Persia via Turkey centuries ago. Native Americans have prized turquoise since the time of the Aztecs, who mined it in New Mexico. The natural variations that occur in turquoise are part of their appeal and beauty.

Well-known artist Effie Calavaza is from the Zuni Tribe, which is located in New Mexico. Effie was taught by her husband Juan Calavaza and began silver work in 1956. She combined her husband's work and her designs to create some of the most beautiful and most distinctive Native American art! Her hand done work is among the best and most recognized jewelry in the southwest. Her jewelry is stamped with the family hallmark EFFIE C. ZUNI, which is used by Effie and her three daughters Georgiana Yatsattie, Gloria Jean Garcia, and Susie Calavaza. Effie's daughters assist her in the jewelry making (she shared her spouse's mark, JUAN C. ZUNI, until his death ca. 1970). To this day Effie's work is collected throughout the world and she continues making jewelry because she enjoys it!

    Amazing!
    Posted by Christina J. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    This ring is so beautiful, the pictures are very nice but it's so much better in person. I did have to get it resized at a local jewelry store (my mistake) but the jewelers were impressed with how authentic the silver and stones are for how much I paid. I never take the time to give reviews but I really want to support this wonderful business!

    The inlaid lapis lazuli ring I recently recently exceeded my expectations. The work was very clean and smooth, and the ring arrived promptly in perfect condition. Kudos, too, on the website, where it is easy to find a specified type of item, and a fun wishlist. I find the prices to be very competitive.

    The shipping was prompt, the cuff bracelet beautiful and delicate. The company immediately answered my question and added the gift box which I forgot when checking out. Highly recommend!

    Fastest Service Ever

    The beautiful liquid silver necklace arrived in record time. Three days after I placed the order. My wife loves it. Lots of compliments. Just the right length and 50 strands are perfect; not too much weight nor excessive.. The tone is somewhat golden-silver. Not glitzy. Just right. Thank you.
