18 Karat gold and Argentium silver, fuse together in this stunning Mokume Gane pendant featuring a white sapphire and Argentium silver framework in this modern design inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright’s designs. This pendant is 18.5 inches in overall length, and features an permanently incorporated sterling silver snake chain. The sapphire in this pendant is a beautiful AAA clean natural white sapphire. If, however, you would like this gemstone replaced with a diamond, I will be more than happy to accomodate your request. Please contact me for details and diamond pricing. Mokume Gane means “wood grain metal” in Japanese. It is the ancient art of fusing many alternating layers of different metals, which are fused together, and then patterning this fusion using hammers and hand tools to create highly intricate surface embellishment. Originally invented to decorate the handles of folded steel swords (also known as “Water Steel” or Damascus Steel), today modern metalsmiths create this wonderful material for personal adornments. The entire process takes about 36 hours to result in a useable material, but the pattern variations possible between copper, brass, silver, various platinum alloys, and most of the colors of gold are simply amazing. I have other patterns of Mokume Gane that I have created on hand, including copper and argentium in a circle “raindrop” pattern, brass and copper in a stripe pattern, brass and copper in a four-pointed star pattern, and one fused billet of unpatterned copper and argentium silver that I will be happy to pattern for you upon request. Please contact me for pricing for these other options.
