Sterling and turquoise two-piece earrings by Chimney Butte.

$129.00

Description

These are some impressive two-piece earrings made by Chimney Butte.  They have an oxidized black background accented by crosses and small turquoise stones.  They are 2.25-inches long and one-half inch wide; weighing .36 of-an-ounce each.  Hallmarked "Chimney Butte."   Chimney Butte is a real person and a real character indeed.  And he was a big hit at the 2016 Santa Fe Indian Market, where he used to sell on the plaza for years.   He is a true dedicated artist/silversmith, and a person who appears to be guided by spiritualist principles.  He is big as a butte and learned his chops early in his career from the late legend, Tommy Singer, when both he and Mr. Singer lived near Dilkon, Arizona.  He claims half-Comanche/half-Anglo lineage, and is married into the Santa Domingo tribe (just south of Santa Fe).  This guy is larger than life and belongs in a chapter of the Drifter's book.  His dedicated following in the movie industry includes some of the cast from the "Hateful Eight;" Brooke Shields, and quite a few others.
