Mokume Gane 0.5mm thick sheet is a beautiful patterned metal originating from Japan.

As it is made up of silver and copper it is easy to work and can be treated exactly as you would either of these metals to create unique pieces of jewellery!

What is it? 'Mokume Gane' is Japanese for wood grain. It is made up of approximately 25 alternating layers of sterling silver and copper, hand-worked to reveal the pattern. 

  • 24 gauge, thickness approximately 0.5mm
  • Available in two patterns, ladder (stripey) and raindrop (concentric circles). The ladder has the pattern on both sides of the metal and the raindrop has the pattern on one side and a silverback)
  • Sold per cm², cut to your specifications (stock levels allowing). The maximum size we are able to supply as one sheet is 30cm x 7cm
  • To order: select the pattern you’d like from the drop-down menu, enter your cutting dimensions and the website will calculate the cm squared required and the cost, and we will cut your sheet according to these details. The total squared cm of your piece of cut mokume gane sheet will show as the quantity in the shopping basket
  • Sheet is supplied fully annealed (soft), making it flexible and easy to create your design
  • Solder with sterling silver solder or ready fluxed solder paste
  • Polish as you would with silver and copper
  • As the mokume gane is a hand-worked metal the pattern and pattern direction may vary slightly from the photographs shown  - if you have a particular preference, get in touch
