Brief update on what I'm doing: 

Thermal cycling the wootz ingot, 950C, 600C, 900C, 600C, 850C, 600C...

Patterning the silver-shibuichi-shakudo billet with a small drill

Test patination of above billet, once again the shibuichi and shakudo colors are exquisite

Twisting silver-copper bar to form a ring

Better photos when the last two are finished will be posted on my Etsy shop.

Etsy shop!

I finally got around to set up my Etsy shop. You can find ready made billets for sale there, and I will be adding patterned billets, and maybe finished pieces later on. The first two, are a nickel silver, copper, brass billet and a sterling silver, copper billet. Thanks!

UPDATE: Etsy shop is dead as it saw little traffic. If you want to buy mokume billets or finished pieces, just contact me through the comments below and I will respond with direct email.
