Description

An impressive chip inlay sterling silver necklace by Navajo silversmith Charlie Singer.

The large, sterling silver disc is chip inlaid with turquoise and coral in stepped and spiral patterns, with just enough stampwork to really make it stand out. It is hung from a length of round and long hand made bench beads, with 4 pearly glass beads that give them a unique look. The disc has an open bail so it can be slid onto or taken off of beads like it's on, or could be worn on a chain too.

Charlie Singer was born in 1931 and has been actively producing silver since the 1970s. He is the brother of Tommy Singer, the renowned silversmith credited with inventing the use of chip inlay. A master in his own right, Charlie uses chip inlay, stampwork and overlay work.


Materials: Sterling Silver, Coral, Turquoise.
Measurements: Pendant is 2-1/4th inches in diameter. The necklace measures approximately 26.5 inches from clasp to clasp, and the round beads 8.5 to 9mm round.
Age: 1970s
Marks: Charlie Singer's arrowhead hallmark.
Condition: Excellent, no damage to inlay or metal. Light wear and very small dents on a couple of the beads.
Weight: 58.5 grams
