This bracelet is an exploration, seeing how many layers of material are needed to get a complex pattern. The fewer the layers, the more practical it would be to create the piece in gold, using just blank layers of silver to add strength to the bottom half of the billet. This one isn't gold! It's sterling silver with two exotic Japanese alloys - 25% shibuichi and my new favorite metal - kuroshibuichi. Kuroshibuichi is the dark gray, shibuichi is the lighter gray. The gold one (18k yellow, silver, and palladium 500) is in progress, will post images when complete.
