Beautiful solid Zuni five (5) stone turquoise double snake bracelet by Effie Calavaza. The artist has used five (5) cut and polished turquoise nuggets with light brown matrix setting each nugget into a hand cut serrated bezel. She adds two (2) silver drops between each stone for separation and design. She also adds two (2) silver decoratively stamped snakes that twist and weave around the stones from each end and pass the center stone resting their heads on the second and fourth stone. Both snakes have inlaid turquoise eyes. She finishes by adding snake jaw stamped symbols on both sides to each end. This is the same design that both Effie and her late husband Juan have been making since the 1940's and is somewhat a family trademark.

The bracelet measures approximately 5/8" wide with an inner circumference of 5 1/4" and a 1" opening. The bracelet fits a 6 1/4" wrist as is and could be slightly adjusted to fit up to a 6 1/2" wrist. It weighs 41.2 grams (1.45 ounces or 1.32 troy ounces) and is stamped EFFIE C. - ZUNI. This stamp is in smaller letters which tells me it's a fairly newer made piece probably from the 1990's to date. Very nice traditional Effie C. bracelet!  $289.95
