Large dragonfly pendant with Royston turquoise by the artist known as Chimney Butte.



 "Chimney Butte" is a real person and a real character indeed.  The Drifter heard about the artist known as Chimney Butte but hadn't met him.  Determined to meet the person responsible for creating some very attractive jewelry, the Drifter  made a concerted effort to find him (see pics below).  The Drifter found a true dedicated artist/silversmith, and a person guided by spiritualist principles.  Chimney Butte is big as a butte, and he learned his chops early in his career when he lived near Dilkon, Arizona from the late legend, Tommy Singer.  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 castmenbers from the "Hateful Eight" movie; Brooke Shields, and others.  Pictured is a beautiful dragonfly with Royston, Nevada turquoise; Sterling silver bead accents.   It has a 3.5-inch wingspan and a giant bale that will suit Navajo pearls  etc.  Weight is 2.67-ounces.  Hallmarked "Chimney Butte."  Ships with an 18" solid Sterling silver box chain.  Look for other pieces made by this artisan that will be posted in this section as well.
