Here is a little information on the artist taken off Garland's Indian Jewelry and Navajo Rugs Website.


Charlie John is a Navajo overlay artist, born in Winslow, AZ in 1954. He was raised and went to boarding school at his family’s home in Dilkon, AZ. His father’s uncle was William Singer who Charlie credits with teaching him silversmithing. He started doing his apprenticeship at age 14.

In 1972 William Singer started a shop near Charlie’s boarding school. Charlie both worked on jewelry and started selling it. Charlie says, in those days they would make a suitcase of jewelry and the buyers would purchase the suitcase and all of the jewelry at one time.

Thanks Garland for the information.
