Chalmers Day learned his art from the Hopi master, Preston Monongye. As Dr. Gregory Schaaf in his book, American Indian Jewelry Artist Biographies states: "Chalmers specializes in very detailed and sophisticated designs in the overlay technique. The quality of his artistry is exceptional. His compositions combine village scenes, cornfields, kachinas and more in a single piece…. His jewelry takes one on a journey into the Hopi world. His designs portray the life of the Hopi, their migrations, ceremonies and spiritual figures. He is recognized as one of the greatest overlay jewelers in history." (p. 133). We have been proud to work with Chalmers since the 1980s.
