Technique mokume gane was invented by the master of swords by Denbe Shoami in the XVII century in Northern Japan. He was a skilled craftsman, and once during the manufacture of the blades he noticed that non-ferrous metals can be joined together and get textures that look like patterned Damascus steel.
The complexity of the technique found was that almost incompatible metals were joined together in beautiful and bizarre patterns that never repeat themselves.
That’s the essence of mokume-gane. How unique each person, facial features, fingerprints and strings of the soul, so it is impossible to repeat the same picture of mocumas. You have already noticed that all the rings from the mokume collection are different: everything depends on the flight of thought and creativity of the jeweler.
We called the Mokume set, the solar crater, because the amazing pattern of the three precious metals forms lines similar to the surface of the planets of the solar system. Metals vibrate in ornaments, turning them into a synergy of touch.
A powerful cosmic wave walks your fingers, like star clusters. Surprising texture of the surface is combined with technology and aesthetic beauty.
The ring and earrings «Mokume. Solar craters» are made of shakudo, red gold and etched silver, which we also oxidize and darken. Uniqueness is visible to the unaided eye: no one in the world will have such a kit as you have.
We decided to decorate the ornaments and decorate them with solar stones. The energy of the Sun and the planets will become constant companions of your life. The sand color of the stone perfectly shades the versatility of the patterns.
