DESCRIPTION:

This lovely pair of earrings is a work of art and has everything you could possibly want from a piece of Native American jewelry! This piece of Native American jewelry is Zuni hand made by artist Effie Calavaza, out of genuine sterling silver, real Coral and Onyx. The earrings have a a total of EIGHT stones, (FOUR in each earring) FOUR of which are inlayed to create the snakes eyes, while the other FOUR are set in hand cut bezel, in the midst of charming silver snake designs. Imprinted designs and silver beads can be seen accenting for a magnificent finish. In Native American beliefs, the snake is found in many healing and fertility rituals. It is also connected with lightning, speed, and being able to move undetected. The earrings are stamped Zuni and hallmarked by the artist. 

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.

Onyx is known to be a calming stone. It collects negative energy from you. 

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!

    I am so pleased with my first order! I was able to find a pendant to match a pair of earrings I purchased in Arizona 9 years ago. The workmanship and artistry is beautiful! I will continue to find more treasures from your wonderful selections. Thank you so much.

    Posted by Charlotte F. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    I have been purchasing pendants from you since December of 2017. I have loved all of the pieces and have had several compliments on them. I have shared your address with many people since then. I love my last purchase, though it was a bit more expensive,it was larger than any of my previous purchases. Beautiful pieces! I have a silver choker that I wear them on. Thanks.
