Mokume Gane Studs
Mokume Gane is an ancient Japanese technique of fusing metals to create unique and intricate patterns.
Directly translated, “Mokume” means “Wood Grain” and “Gane” means “Metal”.
It was first used in the 1700’s as adornment for Samurai Swords. But how exactly it came to be is unknown, as the special technique was held closely as a secret and passed down from master to apprentice. After all these years, the process remains mostly the same.
Our Mokume Gane sheet is made from a combination of Argentium Silver, copper and Shibuichi (a traditionally Japanese copper alloy), giving it highly defined contrast. No two pieces will ever be the same!
