Chimney Butte has an unmistakable style, AND, a penchant for choosing beautiful and unusual stones. This piece is no different. The two generous pieces of sugilite have a lot of color and inherent matrix, 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 by him in Santa Fe would be at least double—if not more—the price here. This is a pretty large, attention-getting piece. Length (not counting the bale) is 3 and 1/8th-inches long. Width is 1.75-inches. Weight is 50.1-grams, or 1.77-ounces. Ships with an 18-inch solid Sterling silver chain. Hallmarked "Chimney Butte."
