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 NINE stones, FIVE of which are delicately set in hand cut bezels in the midst of two fabulous silver snake designs, while the other FOUR are inlaid and create the snakes' eyes. Silver beads and imprinted designs can be seen accenting the snake designs for a wonderful 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 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 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!

    Teardrop earrings
    Posted by Sherry L. | Reviewing NativeAmericanJewelry.com | Posted on
    I bought these to replace a pair I'd had for 40 years - and lost. They are exactly as represented. The price was excellent and I got them a few days after ordering them. I was informed at every step. Excellent service. Thank you!

    Excited!
    Posted by Charity H. | Reviewing NativeAmericanJewelry.com | Posted on
    I bought this ring as a gift for my soon to be husband for his birthday. It is beautiful! I can't wait to give it to him, I'm so excited! The only issues I have are: 1. It didn't come in a ring box, it was in a plastic baggy wrapped in bubble wrap. 2. It is not stamped 3. Did not come with a certificate of authenticity Other than that it's perfect! Thanks!

    What a xmas present
    Posted by Guy R. | Reviewing NativeAmericanJewelry.com | Posted on
    On the 17th of December I ordered two necklaces from Native American Jewelry. The following Thursday I received both necklaces in the mail. When I opened them they were individually packed in a secure packing box. Before I left my mail box I opened the box and took out each necklaces. I found each of them were lovely and well worth the money I paid for them. On the night before Christmas I secured each necklaces in the limbs of our Christmas Tree. On Christmas morning I told my wife some of her gifts were in the tree. After searching for several minutes she found each of the necklaces, opened the presence and fell in love with them. I'm looking forward to buying more from Native American Jewelry.
