Additional Info

Born at Canoncita Navajo Reservation in NM in 1955, Bennie Ration's childhood included observing his father, John Ration, working silver. Encouraged by his father's counsel, "You will always have silversmithing to fall back on", Bennie created his own style of three-dimensional pieces, using shadow box techniques. The look, feel and emotion of Bennie Ration's creations set him apart from other Native American jewelry geniuses.
