Art: Faith by Artist Marvin Lee Billings
"Faith" This is a mans ring made with Nacozari turquoise a beautiful blue with white matrix set in silver . The top is 22 mm x 17 mm x 7 mm Total weight is 17.7 grams . And yes 17.7 has a meaning too . Size 11 Nacozari mine is located south of the Bisbee, Arizona mine in the same mountain range. Nacozari turquoise is a bright sky blue color with very little matrix. I made this ring for my Uncle Tommy Billings at his request . He survived the storm of Hurricane Katrina in the hart of devastation he made his conversion that day. His was the only building left standing in sight. Note : you know where the three bands connect to the mount it is 16 mm across an the connection "John 3.16" And from the Bible" Luke 11" 1 When Jesus had finished praying, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught his followers to pray.” You can't see it but under the stone I placed two copper sheets 20 gage one with an eternal life cross hammered into it the other the secret sign of the fish (used as a Christian mark in the time of Rome). I used these to get my weight right on the money so to speak. All of these symbols along with the Christ on top recreate a second trinity 1# Christ= father 2# Fish= people or son & 3# eternal life cross = the Holy sprit. The two coppers are for the biblical story in Mark 21 of the Widow woman given all she had to god in faith that she would prevail against adversity much like my uncle did that storm.
