This Mokume Gane Shield Pin is a tiny, one-of-a-kind work of art. To make it, quite a few metals were used – sterling silver, 14 Kt yellow and white gold, copper, shakudo (a mix of gold and copper in certain proportions), shibuichi (another traditional Japanese copper alloy), and cupronickel. Despite its relatively small size, it has a lot of character and can be worn by anyone who appreciates subtle luxury.
This Mokume Gane Shield Pin is made by Arunas Krutkevicius – an experienced goldsmith who lives and works in Klaipeda, Lithuania. He belongs to that special caste of goldsmiths who mastered the art of Mokume Gane – an ancient Japanese metal-working technique that we are absolutely in awe of.
To make a pin like this, one needs to fuse quite a few layers of thin metal sheets of different colors. Then, twist and forge to attain unique colorful patterns. Production like this requires a lot of everything – of metals, skill, experience, time and patience.
