Mokume wedding rings

11 10 2010

Well, I have been working on a ton of stuff.  But that is just bicycles….Kind of old hat for me.  This was fun! and since I am getting married, timely.

Mokume Gane is translated as wood grain metal in Japanese and is an ancient technique that was often used on swords.   Here is my attempt.  I would very much like to practice more with this. It was a lot of fun and has a ton of possibilities.

Start with this:

Layer up the cake…

Bake at 1400 degrees for an hour….

Add some frosting and Bingo, rings….

Ah schucks…Makes me feel good but I can’t sell something like this. Just way too busy and you would want a better jeweler than me.

I just saw Boones new website (he used to sell cool bike parts) Now he is in the ring business. Some nice Mokume stuff there.
