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, along with real Turquoise stones and real Corals. The watch has a total of EIGHT stones, FOUR of which are delicately placed 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. Imprinted designs and silver beads can be seen accenting the snake designs for a magnificent finish. The snake is found in many healing and fertility rituals. It is also connected with lightning, speed, and being able to move undetected. We provide you with a complementary watch face and stretch band. The watch tips are 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.

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. 

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!

    Gift
    Posted by Roberta H. | Reviewing NativeAmericanJewelry.com | Posted on
    I bought a bracelet for my new daughter-in-law's birthday. It is beautiful and in hope she loves it I sent it to her today. Fingers crossed. But while looking through I found a bracelet for myself. Right now I will need to wait to buy it but can't wait.

    Native American Jewelry is fantastic! I ordered a little Crow Mother and it arrived damaged. I called to notify this great company and they told me they would send me another, at no additional cost. Well, my little Crow Mother arrived today and she is beautiful. She sits in a place of honor, nest to her wounded sister.
