"This unique sterling silver Buffalo has gold fill overlay with accented background areas of darkened silver dust. Beautiful work!"
The large 3/4" diameter swinging bail means you can wear this piece with silver beads, a stone necklace, bead or treasure necklace, a collar, heavy chain, leather, anything.
(Shown here with 9 mm Larry Pinto stamped beads, which are not included with this pendant.)
The Singer family has been involved in silversmithing, stone and beadwork for a very long time, handing the art down from one generation to another. Richard Singer's father, Tommy Singer, grew up in the community of Dilcon on the Navajo Reservation in Arizona and has been attributed as the first Native American artist to use chip inlay. (See this bracelet for an example of chip inlay.)
BUFFALO MEDICINE: Buffalo signals a time of abundance, prosperity & thankfulness. Buffalo was the major source of sustenance for Indigenous cultures of the plains, giving meat for food, hides for shelter and clothing, and Spirit Medicine. The Medicine of Buffalo is prayer, gratitude and praise for that which has been received. Buffalo Medicine is also knowing that abundance is present when all relations are honored as sacred, and when gratitude is expressed to every living part of creation, recognizing the sacredness of every walk of life.
