MOKUME-GANE 
Mokume-gane is an ancient Japanese metalsmithing technique that creates beautitul patterns and textures for jewelry.  Mokume-gane means "wood grain metal" in Japanese.  Two or more metals are layered in different color combinations.  The jewelry is made with your choice of the following Mokume combinations: 

       1) 14k palladium white gold with sterling silver

      2) 18k rose gold with shakudo (an alloy of copper and 24k gold)

      3) 22k yellow gold with sterling silver

      4) Palladium with 18kt yellow gold

      5) A three-metal combination of 18kt yellow gold, 14k rose gold with sterling silver.  

You may choose from these patterns: 1) Dot Twist, 2) Twist only, 3) Star pattern. Each ¼" square rod of the combinations contain 15 or more alternating layers of the metals.  The specially welded laminates are hand-forged and patterned by twisting, gouging with engravers and punches.  The jewelry is then etched in nitric acid to develop the textures and depth of this unique metal.
