ABOUT EFFIE C -
Effie C is almost a household name in Indian jewelry. Everyone recognizes her signature snake design. She was born in 1928 and learned to make jewelry from her husband Juan. She began her wonderful career in about 1956. This bolo is early - from the 1960's and hosts 5 beautiful blue Kingman turquoise stones. The eyes of the snake are also turquoise. Because Effie has been so popular, her designs have been copied. She actually went to the Supreme Court of the United States to obtain a copyright on her designs. This is a fabulous old genuine piece of Effie's jewelry.
