DESCRIPTION:

Looking at such beauty tells the capabilities of Native American art! This piece of Native American jewelry is Zuni hand crafted by artist Effie Calavaza, out of genuine sterling silver, real Turquoise stones, and real Corals. The watch has a total of EIGHT stones, FOUR of which are delicately set in hand cut bezel in the midst of TWO gorgeous silver snake designs, while the other FOUR stones are inlaid and create the snakes' eyes. Stamped patterns along with silver beads add style for a magnificent 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.

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. 

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!

    Sterling Silver multiple Turquoise and Bear paws barrette
    Posted by Crystal F. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    I bought this sterling silver barrette because I was wanting a piece of Jewelry that I could safely and easily wear at home. As Covid-19 fears and concerns have made it much too, difficult to go out to restaurants, movie theaters and other such fine jewelry wearing type places. I was somewhat nervous about ordering such a fairly expensive piece of hair jewelry online but it seems I needn't have been so, uncertain. Thus far I am very happy with this purchase :) And the piece shown on the Silver Tribe website by artist Virginia John is the exact same piece I received in the mail ????

    Excellent Service
    Posted by Shelley R. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    I found the Navajo vases I was looking for on the website with pictures & details. I paid for them and the service was so terrific that my order was processed right away and showed up at my doorstep in a matter of a few days. The items were packed very professionally to avoid any damage and the quality of the items were exactly what I was expecting.
