DISTINCTIVE SMALL-BATCH JEWELLERY FOR THE STAND-OUT
There’s always more than what we see on the surface.
Everything in the Layers Series collection has been created using Bi-Metals and Mokume Gane.
Mokume Gane: Translates from Japanese as “wood-grain metal”. This Japanese technique creates a laminate of fused layers of different metals, which can then be patterned through hammering, gouging, filing, and rolling to bring underlayers up to the surface.
Bi-Metal: Two fused layers of metal, which can be patterned in similar ways as are used with mokumé gane.
Most of them have been custom patterned by me, resulting in a distinctive piece that is irreproducible. Patinas may be used to enhance contrast between the metals, effect changes in colour, or to give the pieces an edgier look.
