    Well, here's a breath of fresh air.  Hadn't seen this fetish bear since running into Rose (Rosita) and Charlene Singer at the Navajo Nation Fair in Window Rock, Arizona in September, 2014 (see last pic).  It was only a little over three months since Tommy had left.  I bought some things she had brought—including this bear—and stashed them in a hiding place in the travel trailer.  While getting the trailer ready to sell today, the stashed jewelry—including this and another, slightly different fetish bear—resurfaced.  How nice. 'Made my day!  When I last visited with Tommy shortly before his leaving (3rd pic), he said he was making Rose a part of the business and gave me a new business card he just had printed, with a photo of Rose and Tommy and the new business name of "T&R Singer." Thus, the "T&R Singer" brand slightly predates that of when most people consider it to have begun.  I don't think, however, that any jewelry was stamped with the new hallmark until Tommy's passing to the other side.  Rose has done an exemplary job of carrying-on the legacy of the legend that was Tommy Singer.  Anyway, this lovely and quite harmless bear is a little larger than the smallest bear the Singers made/make, at 1 and 7/8th's-inches wide, and 1.25-inches tall (not counting the generous bale).  It weighs 9.2-grams, or .32-ounces.  Hallmarked "T&R Singer." An 18-inch, solid Sterling box chain is included.  Complimentary USPS tracked Priority shipping within the U.S.
