San Diego, Anneville Studio & Jewelry Lab
Learn the traditional Japanese method of patterning mokume-gane; using a chisel to carve into the surface of blank mokume-gane to create rivers of pattern. After hammering the sheet back to flat, the unique patterns are locked into the metal forever. Participants will create patterned sheets the first day, then have the option of creating a finished pendant the second day, and/or creating their own mokume gane chisel. Includes instruction on soldering and fabrication with mokume gane, and best patinas for each mokume gane metal combination. Materials kit fee includes 2 pieces of blank mokume gane; more will be available for purchase in class. Chisels will also be available for purchase. Best for intermediate-advance jewelry students.
