I don't think etsy allows to link out from there site but you can "copy-paste" the following link in browser box.


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...

    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.

Returns only apply to unaltered items.

In case of a return, I do not refund shipping fees.
Additional policies and FAQs
I don't shine my mokume jewelry because the luster makes it more difficult to see the the pattern. If the copper changes color you can use a product called "tarn x" it is perfect on silver as well. All other silver ware products are safe as well, They will restore the original orangy-pink of the copper.

If you have a ring and wear it every day, the constant movement and rubbing of your hands is sufficient to keep the copper and silver from tarnishing. It will also make your ring more shinny. I use pumice powder to make the matte finish, if you wish I can include a little bag with your purchase.

Note that copper is a very soft metal and wears down faster than other metals.
