About Tommy Singer
Tommy Singer (1940-2014), was the son of a Navajo medicine man who taught him the art of making jewelry. Tommy grew up in a small community of Dilcon on the Navajo Reservation and began his silversmith career at age 21 by making silver overlay jewelry. He soon added turquoise stones to his work and this led to his inovation in the 1970s of the chip inlay method, where small pieces of turquoise and coral are mixed with epoxy to fill cavities in silver pieces. Chip inlay became very popular and continues to be used by countless Native American artists to this day.
Besides using traditional rug and sandpainting designs in his work Tommy made exceptional storyteller pieces in sterling silver and gold overlay. His colorful bead necklaces, which include many different stones as well as gold and silver barrel beads, are highly prized. Tommy Singer was one of the most accomplished and most popular Native American artists and his work is admired and collected the world over.
