Our team had a difficult time choosing an artist of the year. In the end, we decided to go with what our audience loves best this year, which was Singer’s work.

One thing that NativeAmericanJewelry.com prides itself on most is the fact that they work will real artists and share their work with the public. In an effort to grow public awareness of Native art and jewelry, the team at NativeAmericanJewelry.com has taken the liberty of choosing their artist of the year. Based on the overwhelming popularity of Navajo artist’s Tommy Singer’s work, NativeAmericanJewelry.com has decided to launch a new collection dedicated to the beautiful pieces he has made and the company has collected over the years.

Tommy Singer has been mentioned in many books, magazines, and news articles throughout his life. He was born in 1938 in Winslow, Arizona. Tommy belongs to the Tall House Clan of the Navajo Tribe. Tommy was taught by his father and started working with jewelry in the early 1960's.

The spokesman of the company, Steven Onida, is proud to offer his perspective on the choice and why people should come to see Singer’s work for themselves.

“Our team had a difficult time choosing an artist of the year. In the end, we decided to go with what our audience loves best this year, which was Singer’s work. What makes his pieces so unique is the detail and crispness in which he uses the overlay technique of silversmithing to create truly unique piece from silver and gold. I think people will get more than just a fashion statement out of these works. Many of them tell of traditional Navajo symbols, like that of the horse or the bear, to give the piece even deeper meaning.”

The pieces hand crafted by Navajo artist Thomas Singer comes from genuine originality and depth that simply cannot be denied.

For those unfamiliar with the term overlay, it is a process that utilizes at least two layers of sterling silver, gold, or any other metal. The smith takes one layer to form the foundation, while the second layer is used to design the detailed overlay, in Singer’s case, to create unique and crisp images reminiscent of traditional Navajo symbolism.

World famous artist Tommy Singer is “One of the best Native American Indian silversmiths around,” says Onida. His name and his work are easily recognized and associated with the traditional Navajo style and culture.
