Some things take longer than we would like:
Red lights when we are already late.
Appetizers when we are famished.
Sleep when we have an early flight.
But imagine being a samurai in 1650 Japan, and getting your sword ready for battle. Warriors carried swords fashioned from a craft called “Mokume-gane,” a painstakingly slow process that inlaid a wood grain onto metal. Each sword was layered with a dozen layers of alternating color metals and fused in a kiln. Once the metals bonded in a single layer, the surface was repeatedly hammered until a subtle pattern came into view. JacQueline has adapted this ancient technique for her stunningly crafted Mokume-Gane line of rings, bracelets, pendants and earrings.
Some things are worth the wait.
