Mmm. All those nice subtle color and textural differences. So much fun, such variety. And it all wraps together so nicely. I like the sinple polished edges, almost like a picture frame.

Really, really beautiful. The intertwined strips are just gorgeous, and the Mokume Gané pieces make it whole.

Fantastic- love the mokume gane in a submissive role as accent gems. And I adore the contrast of the round mokume gane and the outside curves with the angular woven texture.

I absolutely love this! So much going on and so many techniques. From the bezelled mokumu gain cabs, down to the dainty weave and rivets. I also like that the piece feels light despite the solid middle. I think the "wings" give this lightness with it's thin line and negative space in between. This is definitely a *fav*

A stunning brooch with the interlaced, textured strips of silver and the lovely swirly pieces of Mokume Gané. Nice double pin clasp on the back as well. :)

Thanks :) Admittedly, I bought the mokume gane, it was sooooooooo expensive ! Around £20-£25 for an inch !
