P3 MDB**DO NOT USE

Tungsten DLC-coated stainless steel shield pendant, inlaid with hand-forged mokume gane (the ancient forging technique once used to decorate the hilts of samurai swords), inset with a rare piece of fossil dinosaur bone, the only remaining legacy of an Apatosaurus that walked the earth over 100 million years ago. The bail is sterling silver, on a braided Kevlar cord with black stainless clasp.

William Henry's jewelry collection showcases our work with rare and storied materials, and exceptional craftsmanship, blended with intricate and symbolic stylings in sterling silver, interwoven with exotic and unique forged metals derived from the ancient arts of sword-making.
Designed and hand-crafted in the United States, every piece of this collection makes a bold, yet extremely refined statement, and speaks to a strong and masculine personality.

Materials

Mokume gane material image

Mokume gane

Mokume gane was developed in the 1600s in Japan, allegedly by an Akita prefecture metalsmith named Denbei Shoami (1651 to 1728). He used the mokume gane technique to dress up samurai swords.
The mokume gane technique involves fusing several layers of different metals, and artistically exposing sections of lower layers. The metal is often made to display a pattern that mimics wood grain. A variety of metals can be used to give different arrays of coloration.
Layers of metal are pressed together and fused with heat. The forged layers are carved to expose lower layers and are then pressed again. The carving and pressing is repeated to develop the pattern. 

Today, some of the finest mokume in the world is made here in the USA, and William Henry is proud to offer a range of this material on our collections. Our mokume is generally made with copper, brass, and nickel silver in either a 45 or 89 layer billet, forged and patterned by hand.

Fossil Dinosaur bone

Dinosaur Bone is probably the most exotic of our fossil materials — the fossil comes from a 100 million year-old Apatosaurus. Found and sourced in Utah, dinosaur bone offers the possibility of owning one of the most ancient zoological testaments of the planet. The colors can vary from red to brown, black and green, depending on the minerals surrounding the bone as it became petrified.  

Here is a stunning 40lb specimen we shot here at the studio.
