Natural Morenci Ring

Gene Billie has taught himself to respect and work with Sterling Silver, Gold, and various metals.  There are no boundaries and limits to his art. Gene desires to express himself with a paradox of classical art and beauty through a modern and creative form of art.

He gives form to metal with only minimal tools of the metalsmith.  Shapes emerge with beauty that is exceptional, unique, and one of a kind. The subjects that come from mind to life regarding his creations are spontaneous interpretations of his culture. – Credit to Native Jewelers Society

This ring showcases a beautiful Natural Morenci Turquoise cabochon in a castellated bezel set in a shadowbox-style setting.

The design allows for depth and contrast, making the stone pop even more…just look at that pyrite! The sturdy two-prong shank, with its scalloped “walls”, makes the ring appear heftier than its actual weight, a nice look that’s still comfortable on your finger!

Gene’s own words:
“I aspire to obtain the impression that less means more. Many of my creations show the simple flow of formation. As I gain more knowledge further into different subject matter and techniques, I aim to explore and challenge myself in creating art and everyday living. I believe collectors of the art world will greatly appreciate and capture my Contemporary Art with Indigenous and Traditional uniqueness.”
