Mokume-gane is a metalworking process where multiple metals are combined under high temperatures to create beautiful patterns in the metal. Mokume-gane, a Japanese word, roughly translates to "wood grain metal" which is a good description for the patterns this process can create.
This process originated in Japan and was originally used only for sword-making. However, jewelers and artists have now recognized it's beauty and you'll see the process used in jewelry by some of our artists like Myron Panteah and Al Joe.
