Mokume Gane

I bought a Mokume Gane DVD from Otto frei by Steve Midgett. It's a two part dvd and so far I've watched the first's obviously made in the 80s or late 90s, but I'm not going to hold that against it. It moves pretty slowly and is hard to watch unless you really want to learn this technique, but it has a lot of great information.

He shows you how to build a kiln step by step for fusing the mokume gane. I really enjoy how his whole dvd is set up for someone with a smaller shop, not someone with a large area to work in, which I appreciate since I'm in a very confined space.

I'll let you know how the second DVD goes once I get that one viewed...

Welcome to my blog!

Hi everyone. I created this blog to let people know what I'm up to in my life and jewelry making. I hope to share tips and other interesting things that I find along the way. I'd love to hear from anyone on particular classes that you've enjoyed, as I'm constantly trying to learn more about jewelry.

I also have a lot of jewelry videos that I'll give my two cents about throughout the blog.

If you haven't already check out my etsy site at for all my newest designs. Right now I'm offering free shipping on almost all my items.
