Mokume-gane is a Japanese term meaning “wood eye metal”. The art of making Mokume gane is a metalwork invented in medieval Japan to decorate handles of Samurai swards.

The process of making Mokume-gane is all handmade. The sheets of different color metals are fused but not melt together to make a solid block of metal. Then it is hand-cut to produce the wood grain patterns. The metal then will be shaped into the desire jewelry.

Originally, the metals used in making Mokume -gane are limited to gold copper and silver. But today, some other non-traditional metals such as Palladium, Platinum are widely used as well.
