'Mokume Gane' is a Japanese term which refers to layering metals to achieve a wood grain effect. We will explore the technique by combining thin sheets of your favourite colours into a clay stack. We will then impress an intricate pattern and, using finely cut layers, create a set of 3D disc beads. Once cured, we will sand and string them to make a stunning, statement necklace and matching earrings.
