The work of Effie Calavaza is easily identified by her recurring symbolism – a snake portrayed in her jewelry. In Zuni belief, the snake is a positive sign of rebirth and renewal. She is perhaps one of the most widely recognized Zuni artists. Both chain and pendant are sterling silver, the pendant is also stamped with her hallmark, "EFFIE C ZUNI." Chain measure 18" long, the pendant is 1.5"x1".
