DESCRIPTION:

Expect plenty of compliments while wearing this stunning bracelet! This piece of Native American jewelry is Zuni hand crafted by artist Jude Candelaria (grandchild of Effie Calavaza), out of genuine sterling silver, along with real Turquoise stones. The bracelet has a total of ELEVEN stones, SEVEN of which are delicately set in hand cut bezels in the midst of two gorgeous 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 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.

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 work!
    Posted by Debra R. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    I recently purchased two rings (which came quickly by mail) during the election. After seeing the natural beauty of the stones and the beauty of the workmanship I felt that I should have paid more. I was so excited to have found this site and I know I will use it in the future. It is true value for the beauty! A pleased customer.

    Perfect
    Posted by Shirley j. H. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    I was so happy to see a ring sized at 4 1/4". I've been looking for a pinky ring forever & finally found one. It fits perfectly. I wasn't sure about having stones all the way around the ring, thought they might get in the way. They don't. Would buy it again. Workmanship is great.
