DESCRIPTION:

Excellent craftsmanship is shown throughout these amazing Cuff Links! This piece of Native American jewelry is Zuni hand crafted by artist Effie Calavaza, out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise stones. The cuff links have a total of EIGHT stones (FOUR in each cuff link), FOUR of which are inlayed and create the snake's eyes, while the other FOUR 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 and completing the cuff links for an outstanding 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 cuff links 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.

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!

    Excellent customer service
    Posted by Amy D. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    I ordered a ring for my husband that wasn't quite right in style or size. Silver Tribe let us return the ring and exchange for a different one without any trouble at all. The rings seem well made and look great!
