DESCRIPTION:

This is a very exquisite pendant that must not be overlooked! This piece of Native American jewelry is Zuni hand crafted by artist Effie Calavaza, out of genuine sterling silver, along with real Turquoise and Coral stones. The pendant has a total of FOUR stones, TWO of which are inlayed and create the snake's eyes, while the other TWO are set in hand cut bezel settings in the midst of a stunning silver snake design. Imprinted designs can be seen accenting the pendant 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 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 Bob C. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    I purchased a really nice Silver and Turqouise Pendent for my wife for Valentines Day nd she told me it was the nicest present she had ever gotten in her life! She and I go to local Pow Wows as often as health will allow and now when we see really nice Native American jewelry there or on TV, my wife knows she is "part of the club"!.. Thank you for the wonderful service and great items in your collections.
