Description

Fine sterling silver bolo tie by Zuni artisan Effie Calavaza, featuring her signature rattlesnake designs among turquoise and red coral nuggets and inlays.

Effie Calavaza is considered a legend alongside her husband Juan Calavaza who introduced her to the fine art of Zuni jewelrymaking. Effie began signing her pieces with her own name after her husband passed away in 1970. Many of her pieces share her signature snake motif, complete with turquoise or red coral inlay eyes.

Not marked as such, but tested to be sterling silver.

Marked Zuni, Bennett, Pat Pend. Signed Effie C.

Decorative clasp is about 2-1/8″ wide x 3″ tall x 5/8″ deep.

Tips are about 3.5″ tall x 14mm wide x 8mm deep.

Cord is about 4mm wide and 29.5″ long without the tips.
