This Striking Native American Zuni Sterling Silver and Turquoise Cuff Bracelet features a 1" wide sterling silver band, with (7) vibrant natural Blue Kingman Mine Turquoise Stones set in line in scalloped bezels. The turquoise stones measure approximately 1/2" x 1/2" round and are beautifully matched.
The Effie C. Trademark Rattlesnakes (two) are intertwined between the (7) settings. The snakes are nicely chased (chasing is hand-scribing the design) and the heads are inlaid with turquoise eyes. The Edges of the Bracelet are stamped with the sun-rise design.
The Bracelet weighs 2.8 ounces. Please note that I have listed the matching Effie C. Ring and Watch with the same Snake Design. Offers are welcome for all (3) pieces.
The inside measurement across is 2 5/8", with a 1 1/2" wrist opening. At present configuration this bracelet will fit a large wrist.
Please note that this bracelet has not been polished but will take a high shine if desired.
Excellent Condition – Age: 1960's. Signature / Marks: "EFFIE C." with "ZUNI" beneath her name. This signature represents Effie Calavaza, who collaborated with her husband, Juan Calavaza, who began in the 1950's. Effie's (6) decades of work puts her at the forefront of Native American Women Silversmiths. Her favorite design is the Rattlesnake! The clips are not marked but tested Sterling Silver.
