This is a very cool example of premier Native American silversmith Effie C.'s snake jewelry. Effie Calavanza is a member of the Zuni Tribe and she is well known for her overlaid Snake with small turquoise eyes wrapping around her jewelry pieces. I have never seen or owned a pair of pierced post earrings like these. Set in truly hand made raised sawtooth bezels are 4 pieces of genuine turquoise... one of which looks to me to be "Sleeping Beauty". The other three have just a hint of pale green to them and more natural inclusions?

The Rattlesnake Earrings MEASURE ~ 1 1/4 Inches N-S and ~ 1/2 Inch at Widest - Turquoise are ~ 10 mm. AUTHENTIC Native American Silver jewelry is in VERY FINE CONDITION! ....has not been cleaned ~ polished recently & displays some tarnish that could easily be removed. Each Earring is Clearly Marked "EFFIE C." and “ZUNI”... I GUARANTEE them to be SOLID Silver.

GREAT LOOKING Vintage Southwestern jewelry by a highly regarded silversmith would make a Fabulous Gift or Addition to your Indian jewelry collection!
