Gene Klein has been designing and crafting unique hand engraved sterling silver and gold finery since 1988. Ten years earlier he started building bits and spurs for his cowboy friends and from the very beginning his goal was to create pieces that were absolutely functional. He wanted a product that no matter what its appearance, any horseman would know straight away it was right.

Soon enough, Gene's artistry began to take hold in his work and now cowboys and collectors alike have come to appreciate Gene's attention to detail and his uncompromising ability to combine function and art in every piece he makes. Whether you end up hanging one of these fine pieces on your horse's head or on your wall they're guaranteed to fit, work right and show well.

In addition to his custom work Gene now has several styles in a standard line of popular bits. These are designed, built and hand engraved by Gene and feature the same high quality and artistry of his custom pieces with new patterns to be added soon. Coming soon will be a similar line of popular spur styles so check back with us often and see what's new.

Take a few minutes to look through out site. And don't forget to take a look at the fine hand engraved buckle sets and bracelets Gene offers. We're confident you'll like what you see. Can't find what you want? Call or email with your ideas and give Gene a chance to satisfy your needs for that one of a kind piece. Thanks for your interest.
