Story: I am fascinated with making Mokume Gane! Yes, you can buy milled Mokume Gane, but I love playing with the two metals, Silver and Copper, to see what forms they will create when mixed in different ways. It is always a surprise, and I find that quite refreshing! Some things I make are large, so I wanted to make something interesting that was dainty. Be sure to see the earrings that were made to go with this pendant!
Materials: For this pendant, I used Fine Silver and Copper Metal Clay. There is no patina on this pendant.
Measurements: In keeping with the spirit of being dainty, it measures a 7/8″ x 1/2″ soft triangle. The pendant hangs on an 18″ SS chain.
Care: Only use your jewelry cloth to keep the sparkle.
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”.
