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 and real Turquoise stones. The earrings have a a total of EIGHT stones, four of which are inlayed to create the snakes eyes, while the other FOUR are set in hand cut bezel, in the midst of dazzling silver snake designs. Imprinted designs and silver beads add style and character to the earrings. The snake is found in many healing and fertility rituals. It is also connected with lightning, speed, and being able to move undetected. Earrings are 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.

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!

    Great Rings
    Posted by James H. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    I love silver and turquoise. These rings are so affordable I have a difficult time exiting the site and not ordering. i can promise prospective customers that if you will order just a small ring or clip or pendant or necklace you will be back to order more.
