Born in 1940, Master silversmith and renowned Navajo artist, Thomas Singer died May 31, 2014 in a motorcycle accident. Thomas grew up in Dilcon, Arizona and lived in Winslow, Arizona.He actively made jewelry from the 1960's until his death. His work was included in the 2002 exhibit. At the Museum of Indian Arts & Culture in Santa Fe, NM among other prestigious museum exhibits. He won numerous awards and his work is published in well-known books of Indian jewelry. A silver bracelet, created in 2004 is in the collection of the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D. He was also known for carving storyteller scenes with tremendous detail and skill. Thomas said: I try hard to make different styles and design of my jewelry. Every piece is made with the meanings from my traditional ways. My father was a silversmith. He taught me and wanted me to continue this trade. It was my father's dream that I learn to silversmith, so that I can continue his belief. Thomas learned the art of silversmithing when he was just 7 years old, from his father Tsinnigine Hathali, a Navajo Medicine Man. Thomas incorporates many traditional sand painting and rug designs of the Navajo people into his jewelry. And Thomas himself passed along his skills to his children Richard Singer and Anthony Singer. His wife Rose Singer, continues to make his signature beaded necklaces under the new Hallmark T&R Singer. Never out of style, Southwest jewelry is an investment in enjoyment to last a lifetime.
