ABOUT MOKUME GANE
Briefly, the words “mokume gane”means metals with woodgrain. It is an ancient metal technique developed by a Japanese sword-smith.
The process starts from cleaning and pressurizing many sheets of precious metals, than heat them to fuse to a billet. The billet should be forging & annealing again and again to make the bonding of layers strong. After that , we can carve, drill , roll or twist the billet to make the patterns revealed. Through the processes , we got amazing and unique patterns on it. Finally , flatten it to be the material of our jewelry.
