Mokume gane jewellery by Kochut
As Lao-Tzu said, - the path of a thousand kilometers begins with one step. But this is the most important and fundamental step. We have been engaged in jewelry art for many years, and our way continues all the time. Once we decided to take another step - the study of incredible Japanese mokume gane technology.
Translated from Japanese mokume gane means "metal with a wooden texture," and one of the variations of the translation is "cloud metal." This is an ancient Japanese technique in which masters made samurai swords, knives and other types of cold steel. We studied this technique, which was unknown to Europe until the XIX century, especially in order to create for you the most unusual and unique ornaments. Most likely, you will not find them in ordinary jewelry stores and workshops.
Using this technique, we connect multi-colored metals and create an incredible decorative pattern, similar to the texture of wood. It can be a combination: silver-copper, silver-shakudo (alloy of copper and gold), gold-silver. As a result of layering and fusion of several metals, an integral composition is created, very beautiful and unlike traditional ornaments.
With the help of mocume gane, we manufacture women's and men's rings, wedding rings, but in the future we plan also bracelets, pendants, earrings and other ornaments. The union of nature, art and technology is the real goal that we want to realize in any decoration.
