This wonderful Effie C snake and turquoise cuff has 7 round, Sleeping Beauty turquoise stones set in a handmade, scalloped bezel and set between drops. Two snakes with turquoise eyes, slither inbetween the stones and meet in the middle. This handmade piece has additional stampings at the edges.
Effie Calavaza, of the Zuni, is well known for her snake jewelry and this is a fine example of her work. The snake is a symbol of transformation.
The cuff is 1" in width. The inside measure 5 3/4" with a 1.5" gap for a total of 7.25". The snake heads measure about 1/4" and the stones measure not quite 1/2" in width. There is a tiny crack in one of the stones, but the stone is secure and it does not detract from the piece. Signed Effie C and Zuni. Tested sterling. A hefty 75.3 grams.
