DESCRIPTION:

This lovely bracelet is a work of art and has everything you could possibly want from a piece of Native American jewelry! This piece of Native American jewelry is Zuni hand crafted by artist Effie Calavaza, out of genuine sterling silver and 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 patterns can be seen highlighting the cuff for a deligthful 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 its 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!

    Excellent Service
    Posted by Shelley R. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    I found the Navajo vases I was looking for on the website with pictures & details. I paid for them and the service was so terrific that my order was processed right away and showed up at my doorstep in a matter of a few days. The items were packed very professionally to avoid any damage and the quality of the items were exactly what I was expecting.
