DESCRIPTION:

This lovely watch will definitely attract plenty of attention! This piece of Native American jewelry is Zuni hand crafted by artist Effie Calavaza, out of genuine sterling silver, real Turquoise, and man made Opal stones. The watch has a total of EIGHT stones, FOUR of which are delicately placed in hand cut bezel settings in the midst of TWO gorgeous silver snake designs, while the other FOUR stones are inlaid and create the snakes' eyes. Imprinted designs and silver beads can be seen accenting the snake designs 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 watch tips are stamped Zuni and hallmarked by the artist.

We provide you with a complementary watch face.

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.

Most people know Opal for its distinctive play of color, it is a semi-transparent solidified mineral composed of silicon and water, and it gets its name from the Latin word "Oplus" meaning precious stone. Opal is birthstone of October. It is believed to release self-consciousness allowing spontaneous action, and awakens psychic and mystical qualities. 

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 sand casting and hand done work are 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!

    Love it!
    Posted by Karen P. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    I absolutely love this ring! When I was recently in Arizona, I saw rings just like this, but I did not buy one at the time. Once I arrived home, I realized how much I loved the style and was so happy to find this ring on Silver Tribe. I could not be happier! Stones are beautiful and I paid a fraction of what some shops in AZ were charging for comparable styles. I would definitely recommend this product and I love Silver Tribe. Fast shipping and great prices!

    The Effie squash blossom necklace is nothing short of extraordinary! The detailed description was accurate and I will proudly wear this piece for years to come, and then pass it on to my granddaughter. It will be a wonderful family heirloom for generations to come!
