DESCRIPTION:

What a Wonderful pair of post earrings! This piece of Native American jewelry is Zuni hand made by artist Effie Calavaza out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise stones. The earrings have a a total of EIGHT stones, four of which are inlayed to create the snakes eyes, while the other FOUR are set in hand cut bezel, in the midst of stunning silver snake designs. Imprinted designs and silver beads add style and character to the earrings. The snake is found in many healing and fertility rituals. It is also connected with lightning, speed, and being able to move undetected. Earrings are 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 their appeal and beauty.

Effie Calavaza-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!

    Nice ring
    Posted by Leanna A. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    I was satisfied with the American Indian Coral Sterling Silver ring, Sterling Silver Southwestern Turquoise flower ring, and Mult-icolor Inlay American Indian Zuni ring. The rings run small in size stature. Thank God I have small/medium fingers.

    feather key chains
    Posted by Nancy P. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    The key chains are nice but I thought they would be larger. The picture on your site made them seen larger even though the measurements were given. I love your products just somewhat disappointed this time because they are a wedding gift.

    Posted by Robin K. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    It took us awhile to find the right size that we needed, but Silver Tribe was very patient with us and very helpful with helping us find our Rings we wanted to for our 25th Anniversary to renew our vows. Thank you Silver Tribe, the rings are perfect. And fit very nicely.
