DESCRIPTION:

You will absolutely fall in love with this stunning bracelet! This piece of Native American jewelry is Zuni hand crafted by artist Effie Calavaza, out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise stones. The bracelet has a total of NINE stones, FIVE 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 by 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 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!

    Posted by Mark B. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    super fast shipping ordered Wednesday night got it Friday instead of Saturday. Multi colored bead with a 6 mm hole plenty big enough for the 5 strand liquid silver could have easily done a 10 strand.

    Great, great cuff
    Posted by Debra R. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    I purchased a beautiful multi colored, multi stone bracelet. I couldn’t be happier! However, I always seem to have problems navigating the site. I have been bounced out numerous times on other occasions as well as this purchase losing the items I favorited or had in my cart. I can only go back to the beginning and start over which in this purchase caused me to purchase only 1 item when others I was interested in had disappeared with my cart. They need a better way to search for items and resume a search well into a category. SilverTribe offers many items that appeal to a wide range of shoppers but I continue to struggle navigating the sight. Don’t forget with my difficulties I LOVE MY CUFF!
