Story: I made these Mokume Gane Earrings to be worn with the Mokume Gane Pendant of the same shape, but of course, they would look good on their own as well. They would also look good with many other pendants, or a chain, or even on their own. As you can see, no two pieces are ever the same, and that is what I love about making Mokune Gane. It is always a wonderful surprise! Again, I did not use patina on these earrings.
Materials: I used Fine Silver & Copper Metal Clay to create these wonderful designs. The ear wires are slip-resistant! This could be helpful when wearing a mask.
Measurements: These earrings are small, measuring 1/2″ in the shape of a soft triangle.
Care: To care for these earrings, use your jewelry cloth to keep the shine in both the Silver and the Copper.
Meaning: Mokume Gane is an ancient Japanese metalworking technique that produces a mixed=metal laminate with distinctive layered patterns. The patterns produced look like wood grain, so it is no surprise that Mokume Gane loosely translated means “wood grain metal”.
