DESCRIPTION:

This lovely bracelet 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 crafted by artist Effie Calavaza, out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise stones. The bracelet has a total of NINE stones, FIVE of which are delicately set in hand cut bezels in the midst of two fabulous silver snake designs, while the other FOUR are inlaid and create the snakes' eyes. Silver beads and imprinted designs can be seen accenting the snake designs for a wonderful 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 bracelet is stamped Zuni and is hallmarked by 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 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!

    Beautiful
    Posted by Linda J. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    I was so impressed with the pieces from my first SilverTribe order, I ordered a ring and 2 pair of earrings. Beautiful and very well made! Everything is as it appeared in the pictures though the ring is longer than I expected. The size is perfect though and it looks amazing on. I now have 3 pair of earrings from SilverTribe. Again, they are stunning, great quality and reasonably priced. The only negative is with the earwires. They're silver but do not compliment the dangles. I make simple beaded silver jewelry by weaving and wrapping. I dont know how to silversmith, yet (some day). I make my own wires from 20 gauge silver wire. It doesn't take that much longer but adds so much.

    Posted by Daniel S. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    When I looked at the order historyfor my account I realized there was a pattern. My wife’s birthday and our wedding anniversary. For the last four years I have purchased from Silver Tribe. I have trusted two of the most important events in a year to Silver Tribe. Why? Because it’s always fast shipping. Great products at reasonable prices. What I believe may one day be heirloom pieces. It’s simple Silver Tribe is Always the best!
