Mokume gane is a technique of metal fabrication first developed by the master swordsmiths of 17th-century Japan. In the 20th century, a focus on industrialization and a shift away from traditional crafts, along with the great difficulty of mastering the art, brought mokume artisans almost to the brink of extinction. A new generation of master craftsmen is now reviving this ancient technique, as new technologies allow the use of non-traditional metals to produce effects never seen before.

The basic process involves fusing layers of different coloured metals together to form a billet, which is then cut, drilled, twisted and forged to produce different patterns within the body of the metal itself. As a piece is shaped to its final form, different layers of metal are revealed, producing a variety of unique patterns, which are not just on the surface but extend through the whole body of the piece. At Object Maker, we use predominantly gold and silver to produce rings and other pieces of jewellery

Please be aware that with this technique, although we follow the identical process whenever we make a specific pattern, even with the finest craftsmanship the result is slightly different every time. Each piece is a unique and irreplaceable work of art.
