This Mokume Gane bracelet is made using techniques borrowed from pattern welded steel which involves multiple firings and complicated arrangements of layers to produce a unique and intricate pattern.
Shown here in a 9mm wide bracelet with the copper and silver metal combination and an etched finish.
This bracelet is a side medium and is currently in stock.
All mokume pieces are available in any size, width, profile, pattern, metal combination and finish. All pieces are made individually from start to finish and so will be completely custom.
~Mokume gane is an ancient metalworking technique in which layers of precious metal are alloyed together with heat and pressure then twisted, carved and forged to create beautiful organic patterns. The metals I use include gold, silver, copper, platinum and palladium.
Mokume Gane translates from Japanese as "wood eye metal" which reflects the wood grain patterning admired by the Japanese craftsmen. This rare metal lamination process is similar to damascus and was developed and used by Japanese swordsmiths in the 17th century for the adornment of samurai swords.
Price is based on metal combination, width and size.
