Chip inlay work is an exponentially tedious process that involves placing very small pieces of crushed gemstones into channeled inlays, piece by piece, and finishing it with epoxy resin.
It requires incredible amounts of patience and willpower and can result in absolutely stunning finished pieces of jewelry. Corbet Joe signs his work, C J with the letters typically offset. Singer grew up on the Navajo reservation and was taught his craft by his father beginning at the age of seven. Over time, he honed his craft working from a small studio surrounded by friends and family.
Singer is credited with inventing the "chip-inlay" technique in the 1960's alongside his brothers William, Charlie and Jackie. They did so using inlaid turquoise and coral pieces in silver laid out in traditional Navajo designs. When asked about his work, Singer said, Every piece is made with the various meanings from my traditional ways - the Navajo way of living.
My father was a silversmith, too. He taught me, and wanted me to continue this trade. It was my father's dream that I learn to silversmith so that I could continue his beliefs Gregory Schaaf, 2003, page 292 great addition to your collection?
