DESCRIPTION

Excellent craftsmanship is shown throughout this amazing ring! This piece of Native American jewelry is Zuni hand crafted by artist Effie Calavaza, out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise stones. The ring has a total of THREE stones, TWO of which are inlayed and create the snakes eyes, while the other stone is set in hand cut bezel in the midst of a gorgeous silver snake design. Imprinted patterns can be seen accenting for a marvelous 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 ring is 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.

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!

    Customer service on gorgeous bracelet
    Posted by Ruth B. | Reviewing NativeAmericanJewelry.com | Posted on
    I have purchased many items from NAJ. Always thrilled. This time was over the top. I was concerned about the safety clasp on a beautiful silver bracelet. The customer service couldn’t have been better! Discussion by email, sharing of pictures, return of the bracelet to NAJ, and before they returned it to me, I received a picture of the fix and opportunity for full refund if not satisfied. It was all thoughtfully communicated and fast! The artistry on the pieces are so special. I just wished I lived near their shop!
