Announcement   Welcome to élk jewellery!! This name comes from my initials, Émilie Leblanc Kromberg. I love to play with contrast which is probably why i am such a mokume gane fan. I also love customising to your taste. If you have alterations in mind, please feel free to contact me:)

Mokume gane is an ancient Japanese technic that consists of making a lamination of different colored metals, therefore creating beautiful waves on the surface. I usualy use silver and copper but i can work with gold and other metals. Working with this technic is a challenge and is a little unpredictable, it's a pasion for me since the first time i tried. I love the suprises that i get with every piece finished.

Most of my creations have mokume in it, although i also have a line of mix and match animal totem pieces that has contrast and wavy cuves like i enjoy so much. More info in the profile… http://www.etsy.com/people/elkjoaillerie

Bonjour et bienvenu chez élk joaillerie!
Élk joaillerie est une entreprise Québecoise qui se spécialise dans le Mokume-gane, une technique japonaise qui fut utilisée au 17e siècle pour la confection des réputés sabres de samouraïs, les katanas. Traduit littéralement par «bois oeil métal», le Mokume-gane consiste au laminage de plaques en métal dont les couleurs diffèrent, comme l’argent et le cuivre. Lors de la finition, des traits qui se suivent et qui tourbillonnent se forment à la surface de la pièce, lui donnant cet aspect similaire au grain du bois.

Au fil des années et à travers le monde, plusieurs personnes ont étudié et travaillé cette technique dont la popularité va grandissant. Aujourd’hui, une joaillière de Montréal se passionne pour la beauté étonnante qu’offre le Mokume-gane et utilise le procédé afin de faire des bijoux uniques. Chaque motif est distinct, singulier; les bijoux présentent un look différent tout en restant chics et modernes.

J'adore faire des pièces sur mesure alors ne vous gènez pas à me communiquer...

Emilie was patient and very helpful while we were coming up with design ideas for our wedding rings. She gave lots of constructive feedback and helped us shape our design ideas into reality. I am completely in love with the way they look, even more so knowing they're handmade with sustainable materials.

gorgeous! understated and yet still eyecatching. they go beautifully with everything so far. :) plus this seller is a gem...we had issues with the post office claiming my home address "doesn't exist", and she made sure to update me on every step of the process. Thank you Emilie! I will be purchasing from you again

    I'm from a Gaspésian village on the east coast of Canada. I always loved to work with different materials. While studying jewelry, I discovered the incredible malleability and coalescence of metal. It has been my passion ever since.

Additional policies and FAQs
My mokume gane jewelry is finished with a mat brushed look. This is because the luster of a high polished piece makes it more difficult to see the the pattern.

MAINTENANCE:

* It is best to take of ring when bathing, swimming or heavy manual labor. Some chemicals may change the color of the metals, if this occurs, you may use liquid cleaning product for silver to restore the colors.
* The original bushed finish can get scratches and eventually become shinny. If you wish to restore the brushed look, you may use a green scouring pad "scotch-brite". With gentle soap and water rub the pad on the ring in a strait continuous motion following the circle of the ring.
