Here are a few rings I made.  3 were for commission and the one I have left is on the far right.  The metal is "mukume gane" which at this time I purchase in sheet form and fabricate from there.  I am hoping to make more of my own, but the first few attempts have not worked too well.  The top left one I hammered to give it a faceted look and don't like it much, but my friend did, so I guess that's what matters.

This is the first time I've heard of mokume gane.... interesting. You say you bought it by the sheet?

Thanks for the nice comments! 

Yes, I buy the metal by the sheet.  You can get many patterns or make your own, which I hope to do more of.  I do change some of the patterns I get as well.  You can check out the site at http://www.reactivemetals.com/

They also have a bunch of titanium and anodised aluminum (looks like rainbow color) which I've never tried out.

I think they're really great! I love the one at the bottom.

I checked out that website you mentioned...looks pretty neat.  Smiley
