DESCRIPTION:

An offer like this will not last long! This piece of Native American jewelry is Zuni hand crafted, by artist Effie Calavaza, out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise stones. 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 stunning silver snake design. Imprinted patterns and silver beads can be seen accenting for a wonderful finish. In Native American beliefs, the snake is found in many healing and fertility rituals. It is also connected with lightning, speed, and being able to move undetected. 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.

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!

    Very Happy!!!
    Posted by Adriana W. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    I'm very happy with my two pieces of jewelry. I've been looking for a lapis pendant for a long time, because of the great spiritual properties of the stone. The lapis pendant is a gorgeous piece of art. Love the needle point & design. The onyx ring is another beautiful, unique piece. I absolutely love & recommend this jewelry. It's an honor for me to wear this pieces, made by great native american artists, with excellent quality, beauty & soul!

    I received help all along my purchase. My billing and dress and shipping were the same and i needed the shipping changed after the purchase. It was done rapidly. I received my order well packaged. My kachina dolls arrived in perfect condition within 3 days. I will shop again many times. Great items, great prices. Enjoy.

    Beautiful jewelry
    Posted by Lillian H. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    I bought a opal ring and a reversable pendant they are so beautiful. I loved the pendant so much I ordered another in a different type of turquoise. Everything I have ever ordered over the years from Silver Tribe has been awesome. If there were more than 5 stars on this review I would give them the maximum every time. Free shipping is really great too!!
