Mokume Gane silver and copper bangle view 2 by fairyfrog Mokume Gane silver and copper bangle view 2 by fairyfrog
When metal meets wood...

Bangle in the japanese Mokume Gane technique. Silver and copper stacked, twisted and worked to look like wood.
The metal has been etched to give more distinction between the metals.

This is a pattern test made for a customer interested in a project in this technique and wanted to see a little of what I can do.

Yes. stacked silver/copper/silver/copper etc and then heated and fused together. There is a fine line between fused together and molten into a pink, useless blob of very very hard alloyed metal. O.o

Nice. Unfortunately, I have yet to sell any of my Mokume-Gane items in this area. This town is VERY uncultured and uneducated, and those who do seek to better themselves, never come back here. I am in the process of leaving this town, myself.
