A NEW SHIPMENT JUST ARRIVED FROM THE RESERVATION:
Effie "C" Calavaza, a Zuni artist from New Mexico, is one of the
most collected and most beloved Native American artists. But she is also one of
the bravest. Effie went all the way to the Supreme Court of the United States of
America to obtain full copyright of her art work to stop those from importing
fake pieces of her work. She specializes in sand casting and incorporates large
stones with her snake designs. She began silver smithing in 1956 after learning
from her husband, Juan Calavaza. Her work is stamped EFFIE C. ZUNI which is the
family hallmark used by Effie and her daughters. Despite many rumors, Effie is
still making jewelry and her work is in demand world wide.
