Lisa Grant  Cumberland, ME

 

GRANTMy jewellery is created using the Japanese technique of Mokume Gane, which translates to wood grain metal. These beautifully intricate metal patterns were used to embellish the hilts of Samurai swords in the 15th century. The open, flowing patterns I create are more contemporary than the traditional, tight patterns usually seen with Mokume. These patterns are usually of interest to buyers, often sparking the question “what is this”? My designs have a delicate feel to them due to my preference for fine chains and findings; however, the patterns and movement of the mokume pieces create the perception of a more substantial piece of jewellery. This appeals to those who strive to feel feminine and want their individuality noticed. Each design is named after a place in the world to where I have travelled and spent time. I manufacture my own Mokume sheet in my studio using 18k gold, 14k gold and sterling silver.
