there is a fusion of gold and silver (gold on one side of the
thin sheet and silver on the other) that I am trying to identify the
name of.......anyone know? or know where I can get it?
Lori: Mokume Gane is an ancient Japanese metalworking technique that
has been recently rediscovered due to the diligent work of some
dedicated craftspeople. Pronounced “mo-ku-may ga-nay”, it loosely
translates to “wood grain metal”, which is one of the several effects
achieved in this multi-layer metal.
Mokume Gane is created by layering and fusing alternating layers of
metal, which most commonly include silver, copper and/or different
colors of gold. After the stack is fused into a solid “billet” of
metal, it is rolled thin, cut into sections, restacked and again fused
into a single piece of metal. This resulting billet has many thin
layers of metal and is then rolled into a useable thickness, further
reducing the thickness of each layer.
The resulting sheet is then often worked with tools to break up the
flat planes of the layers, then sanded smooth, resulting in a finished
surface that cuts across the multiple layers of metal, revealing the
unique pattern each piece offers. Here is the URL
