DESCRIPTION:

This is a wonderful piece of Navajo artistry! This piece of Native American jewelry is Zuni hand crafted by artist Effie Calavaza, out of genuine sterling silver, along with a real Turquoise stone and real Corals. The ring has a total of FOUR stones, TWO of which are inlayed and create the snakes eyes, while the other TWO stones are set in hand cut bezel in the midst of a gorgeous silver snake design. Imprinted patterns can be seen accenting for a lovely 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 ring is 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.

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!

    Wonderful items
    Posted by Paula M. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    I have bought many items from SilverTribe, in the past years. Every thing I have gotten was as advertized, and I was always delighted when they were sent to me. So easy to order by phone or online, and I love talking to Tea, she makes ordering so fast...I will continue to purchase from this wonderful dealer. I am so glad I found their web site.

    Simply Perfect
    Posted by Wendi M. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    I purchased turquoise studs as well as a turquoise floral charm and 16" silver chain. They are small, just the way I wanted. I think big jewelry is beautiful, but I prefer something on a smaller scale. Shipment was quick and the free shipping is an A+ in my books. I will forever continue to use this website for future purchases!
