Effie Calavaza Zuni Sterling Silver Turquoise Snake Drop Earrings

What a Wonderful pair of earrings! These are hand made by Zuni artist Effie Calavaza out of genuine sterling silver and real Sleeping Beauty Turquoise stones. Each of the earrings has a total of FIVE stones, two of which are inlayed to create the snakes eyes, while the other THREE are set in hand cut sawtooth bezel, in the midst of stunning silver snake designs. Imprinted designs and silver beads add style and character to the earrings.

The snake is found in many healing and fertility rituals. It is also connected with lightning, speed, and being able to move undetected. Earrings are stamped Zuni and hallmarked by the artist.
