Thomas Singer is known throughout the world for his jewelry work. His
overlay pieces incorporate the most traditional of Navajo design - designs
that have endured for many years. Many of these designs are inspired
by Navajo rugs and other traditional designs. Jeweler Thomas Singer
is a Navajo Indian from Winslow, Arizona. Tommy Singer states, "Every
piece is made with the meanings from my traditional ways - the Navajo
way of living. My father was a silversmith. He taught me and wanted
me to continue this trade. It was my father's dream that I learn to
silversmith so that I can continue his belief."
Overlay is created by "sweating" or soldering two pieces of
silver together. The top piece contains a design element which is meticulously
hand cut out of silver. The bottom piece is oxidized and often textured
with stamping to produce a contrasting background. Once together the
work is carefully filed, buffed, and polished to produce this fine finish.
The Sleeping Beauty mine is located near Globe, Arizona. Its turquoise
is noted for its solid, light blue color with no matrix. Sleeping Beauty
turquoise is the favorite of the Zuni Pueblo silversmiths for use in
petite point, needlepoint, and inlay jewelry. This mine is one of the
largest in North America and is still operating.
