|Mokume Gane Pendant by Pete Hodge - Kernowcraft Jeweller|
Mokume Gane is made up of approximately 24 alternating separate layers of different metal bonded together to make a solid billet. After bonding, the billet can be twisted, cut and re-assembled, ground down in areas with burs or shaped with punches or chisels. It is then rolled out to a workable thickness, and hand worked to reveal the pattern.
Mokume Gane takes some time to make by hand, but you can buy a ready made sheet in a range of patterns. This Mokume Gane it is made up of silver and copper it is easy to work and can be treated exactly as you would either of these metals, it can be soldered with silver solder and polished as you would with silver and copper.
