DESCRIPTION

You will absolutely fall in love with this stunning link bracelet! This piece of Native American jewelry is Zuni hand crafted by artist Effie Calavaza, out of genuine sterling silver, along with real Turquoise stones and Corals. The bracelet has a total of TWENTY FOUR stones, TWELVE of which are inlayed to create the snakes eyes, while the other TWELVE are set in hand cut bezel, in the midst of SIX amazing silver snake designs. Silver beads add style and character to the bracelet. The snake is found in many healing and fertility rituals. It is also connected with lightning, speed, and being able to move undetected. Bracelet is stamped Zuni and hallmarked by the artist.

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.

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!

    Beautiful Watch
    Posted by Susan K. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    I received my beautiful watch so promptly. I was worried that perhaps my note at online checkout giving a need for adjustment to the wrist size wasn't seen. But indeed it was sized as requested. What a lovely watch to wear and treasure. Even the included watch face was very attractive. I will be a return shopper in the future.

    I have bought several pair of earings and am very pleased with the earings and the speed of delivery. Having the specific listed...how long or big with a comparison chart next to the description is VERY helpful....I do not like large earings but also don't want very small . A large number to pick from
