Mokume Gane translates from the Japanese as ‘wood grain metal’. Mokume consists of metal sheets made into laminated blocks through fusion. Then it is forged and rolled through a rolling mill, filed, drilled and rolled out again until we have a thin sheet with a variety of patterns. These rings are made with at least 3 different moving parts plus the mokume itself consists of 21 layers of silver and copper. Because of the nature of mokume the pattern varies and no two rings are exactly alike.
The beauty of silver and copper mokume is, that copper is a softer metal than sterling silver and reacts faster with the everyday wear. The lines can get more pronounce, sometimes it can look almost like a topographical relief. The mokume can change from day to day in colour, contrast and shape.
