pattern Vertebrate chain bracelet with a clasp of Eastern
repousse from the Japanese alloy shakudo
silver, sterling, shakudo
long x 7/8" wide x 3/8" deep (fits as a 7" bracelet)
can be added or subtracted for sizing. The shakudo is flame patinated and sealed to protect the color.
The inspiration for the shape of this series comes from the genie bottle shaped, blown glass perfume containers I've collected from Egypt and the gilded glass Christmas tree ornaments that belonged to my grandmother. The title, Allahoudine, is the Arabic word for Aladdin.

Metal Techniques of Bronze Age
Masters: All Chained Up
gane is a laminate technique composed of fused sheets of varying
alloys, such as sterling, gold, copper,
shibuichi, or shakudo, that are hammered, carved, and/or
filed to expose a cross section, creating unique patterns.
This technique is similar to damascene steel.
I repoussé sheets of unpatterned,
straight grain mokume and grind the surface afterwards to
reveal the resulting cross section of metals.
