Chimney Butte has an unmistakable style, AND, a penchant for the unusual.  This piece is no different. The two generous pieces of Kingman turquoise have a primitive, raw appearance, and the silversmithing is classic Chimney Butte—ornate and simplistic at the same time.  Chimney Butte, of Comanche and anglo heritage, learned his chops as a young man while living on the Navajo reservation in Dilkon, Arizona--apprenticing under the legendary Tommy Singer.  Now he sells to Hollywood types and makes jewelry for use in movies.  He is quite popular in Santa Fe where he first started selling his own work.  The price for a piece of this stature in Santa Fe would be quite pricey.  This is a pretty large, attention-getting piece.  Length (not counting the bale) is 3 and 1/2-inches long.  Width is almost two-inches across near the top.   Weight is 38.6-grams, or 1.36-ounces.  Ships with an 18-inch solid Sterling box chain at the price above.  Substitute the box chain for the pictured 6mm, 20-inch burnished "Navajo pearls" for $140 additional.  Hallmarked "Chimney Butte."  Always complementary Priority shipping within the U.S.
