Chip Isaacs is a member of the Oneida Nation of New York. Originally an ironworker by trade, Chip first discovered his talent in the 1980s when he used his welding skills and experience to craft his own sterling silver watchband. When the economy and ironwork jobs began to decline, Chip decided to start his own business and began selling his various works of art.

Chip divides his time between jewelry making, bone carving, bead & leather work and taxidermy. Among his most noted works is a squash blossom necklace that was depicted on the cover of Gem and Mineral magazine. He was also artist of the month in Positive Note, a Native American magazine. Chip is also featured carving moose antlers in a video for the Smithsonian Institute of American Indian Archives.
