Although the only information I have on Jim (Doc) Nicholson is that given to me by the estate, the quality of his designs is self-evident. The artist died in 1999 (87yrs); lived and worked in Santa Fe. Tribe: Choctaw & Anglo - original base: Oklahoma, Texas, Louisiana. Very private - Used old anvils and made his own tools - worked in the Navajo tradition. The listed piece consists of a chain of graduated sterling beads, made of hand cut, stamped segments, holding five rows of highly polished (Chinese?) turquoise beads. It is 26" L, weighs 285 gms., stamped "sterling" and hallmarked: two small circles with a connecting arc (see pic). I have other examples of this artist's work, which I will list as time allows.
