Her culture, beliefs, and history are ingrained within each piece – uniquely and carefully crafted to represent herself and the Zuni people.
Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) April 07, 2015
Native American jewelry, accessories, and art are held sacred by many tribes and enthusiasts. For thousands of years, Native American crafting has been held in high regard for its unique shaping, usage of gems, and superb silversmithing. The Zuni tribe of the southwest has been creating jewelry for centuries out of various metals, gems, and stones to use them for trade, heirlooms, and as representations of belief and culture.
SilverTribe.com, the leading online retailer of Native American jewelry, carries authentic jewelry made from Zuni artisans and is proud to present new inventory from famous artist Effie Calavaza. Calavaza’s jewelry has long been revered by enthusiasts for the detail involved in each piece, which carry the same signature usage of the image of a snake.
Calavaza began working with jewelry after her husband, fellow artisan Juan Calavaza, taught her his own silversmithing techniques. From then, Calavaza has become known for her hand-crafted jewelry that bears the image of a snake or two snakes set in sand casting. Within the Zuni culture; the snake represents renewal and rebirth and is considered a very positive image.
“Calavaza’s work is extraordinary in its beauty and her dedication makes it more than just jewelry,” said SilverTribe spokesperson Chris Anderson. “Her culture, beliefs, and history are ingrained within each piece – uniquely and carefully crafted to represent herself and the Zuni people.”
Currently, SilverTribe.com has jewelry from Calavaza available however, “her jewelry does sell fast because of its quality, and once it’s gone – it’s gone.” notes Anderson. “At SilverTribe, we are so proud to have this authentic Native American jewelry, and at the same time offer free shipping and excellent customer service for those who love to collect and wear our jewelry.”
