DESCRIPTION:

If you are looking for elegance and beauty, you have found it! This piece of Native American jewelry is Zuni hand crafted by artist Effie Calavaza, out of genuine sterling silver, along with real Onyx stones and real Corals. The center piece has a total of NINE stones, FIVE of which are delicately set in hand cut bezel settings in the midst of TWO gorgeous silver snake designs, while the other FOUR stones are inlaid and create the snakes eyes. Mini silver beads can be seen accenting the snake designs for a stunning 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 center piece is stamped Zuni and hallmarked by artist. Each link in the necklace is perfectly connected together to create this gorgeous chain. The necklace is stamped .925 (sterling silver).

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. 

Onyx is known to be a calming stone. It collects negative energy from you.

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!

    Website picture doesn't do it justice

    The malachite stone is wonderful! The colour is much richer and more dramatic than what was depicted in the photo of the item on the site. The setting is lovely! Very happy with. :)

    Purchased earrings resembling feathers in sterling silver as gifts for my daughter and a 30" liquid silver necklace for myself. The most beautiful jewelry I am so proud to own. I will continue to buy from Native you can't do better.

    Beautiful Pendants
    Posted by Gary T. | Reviewing NativeAmericanJewelry.com | Posted on
    I recently purchased a beautiful Zuni ring during a trip to New Mexico. Wanted to get some Zuni jewelry for Christmas gifts but was a bit leary of purchasing on line. Decided to purchase three pendants from Native American. They arrived in two days and were absolutely stunning. Excellent quality and at a great “sale” price.
