His innovatively unique and amazingly beautiful turquoise & coral chip mosaic inlay on sterling silver created a new sensation in Native American jewelry, for which the Singer Family gained fame. Tommy's brother William worked with him on their early designs, and this Peyote Bird necklace is one of their earliest, and most beautiful, for its artistry, wealth of color, and strongly defined design. Necklace has been professionally restrung, all peyote birds and beads are completely orginal, in excellent vintage condition with minimal wear.It has not been polished and retains some aged patina, with the glow of fine old silver. I describe everything to the best of my ability and point out any flaws. I list more authentic, fine quality Native American jewelry throughout the week, so please take a minute and have a look to see what turns up....
