This one-of-a-kind handmade sterling silver pin is by Navajo silversmith Juan T. Singer.
This round pin is larger than most of his hard-to-find pieces at 2 1/2 inches across each way. It's hefty at 40.7 grams.
The workmanship is exceptional with cut-out designs that are chip inlaid with genuine coral and turquoise. The center bezel holds a beautiful natural red coral stone. The outer edge is etched with symbols of teepees and sunrises. The designs that are filled with coral inlay are unique and open to interpretation as are the two etched fish-shaped forms.
The back of the pin is hand-hammered sterling. There's a secure rollover clasp. Marked JTS in conjoined Gothic print. Acid-tested sterling silver.
Excellent vintage condition. Circa 1970s. Juan Singer is listed in the book HALLMARKS OF THE SOUTHWEST by Barton Wright (pg. 156).
