DESCRIPTION:

You will absolutely fall in love with this stunning pair of earrings! This piece of Native American jewelry is Zuni hand made by artist Effie Calavaza, out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise stones. The earrings have a a total of FOUR stones, (TWO in each earring) which are inlayed to create the snakes eyes while twisted silver creates phenomenal snake designs. Stamped patterns accent the earrings for an elegant finish. 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 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 its 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!

    Post drop lapiz-opal earrings
    Posted by Bonita S. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    I like these earrings because they have a post and because the drop is short and tailored enough for teaching college classes. They also go well with my largely navy wardrobe with a kick of sparkle in the opals. They look very smart. Ordering from SilverTribe is simple and fast. If I have questions, I can find someone by phone to ask. I have been pleased with all my orders, which actually look better than the photos.

    Navajo Indian Sterling Silver Turquoise Onyx Ring Size
    Posted by Frances K. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    I love the ring, looks so much better than what the photo shows. It's the flow of the stone that set's the ring off. I would tell anyone one to get this ring. Thanks to the artist who made it.
