DESCRIPTION:

This gorgeous pendant is absolutely distinctive in each and every way! This piece of Native American jewelry is Zuni hand crafted by artist Effie Calavaza, out of genuine sterling silver, along with real Turquoise stones, and real Corals. The pendant has a total of SEVEN stones, TWO of which are inlayed and create the snake's eyes, while the other FIVE are set in hand cut bezel in the midst of a stunning silver snake design. Imprinted designs and mini silver beads can be seen accenting the pendant for a gorgeous 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 pendant is stamped Zuni and hallmarked by the artist.

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 its appeal and beauty.

Corals are known to be very soothing and very protective. Coral is of an organic origin; it is the skeletal remains of marine animals called Coral Polyps. Colonies of these tiny creatures build branching structures as they grow, gradually forming reefs and atolls.

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 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!

    Posted by Richard D. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    I wanted to get my wife some silver native american jewelry for Christmas. So I went to SilverTribe & started shopping online. A large & varied selection of pieces to choose from. I picked out several different ones. She will be pleased with her jewelry when she opens it up on Christmas. She's always enjoyed the jewelry from SilverTribe.

    Turquoise Ring
    Posted by Lydia J. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    I ordered a silver and turquoise ring. Delivery happened in 4 days, which was a nice surprise. The ring is lovelier in reality than the photo. The stone is sky blue and nicely sized. I can't wait to wear it! I will be ordering from Silver Tribe again.
