Beautiful vintage 60's-70's Zuni three section raised multi stone inlay hummingbirds - flowers necklace with matching earrings! The necklace consists of three (3) sections sporting a jet or onyx oval background with multi stone designs laid on top displaying hummingbirds feeding on the sweet nectar of flower blooms. They are set into scallop cut bezels wrapped with twisted wire and encircled with smooth wire and silver drops. The larger focal section also has six (6) smooth wire spoons with circular wire tips hanging from the bottom of the setting. The artist has used turquoise, coral, mother of pearl, and abalone to create each hummingbird and turquoise, coral, and mother of pearl to create each flower. All three (3) sections are connected using long hand made silver chain links. The artist creates hand made silver link chains to complete the necklace along with a hand made hook-n-eye clasp. The two (2) smaller settings measure 1 1/8" by 3/4" across with the larger setting measuring 1 1/4" by 1" across. Including the spoons the large setting measures 2 3/8" tall. The complete necklace measures 16 3/4" end to end with a wearable length of 10 1/4" long. It weighs 26.5 grams and is hand signed K. CALAVAZA - ZUNI N.M. by the Zuni artist. Guaranteed Sterling Silver.
The matching earrings display a round cut and polished turquoise stone set into a scallop cut bezel and wrapped with twisted wire with an ear stud attached to the back. The artist hangs a similar setting with only a hummingbird displayed and attaches three (3) silver spoons. Each earring measures 2 3/8" by 7/16" which includes the spoons and they weigh 4 grams (8 grams for the set). This is a very beautiful necklace and earrings set. We had to have a few small pieces of one of the hummingbirds installed whereas about three (3) pieces were missing. Along with the heavy and uneven patina it had, which we cleaned, I'd say the set was made prior to the 80's. I couldn't find any reference to K. Calavaza, but it's the same style craftsmanship that Joan Calavaza makes so I'm very sure they are closely related. Click Here to see a bracelet and ring made by Joan Calavaza.
