Twist patterning is an experience not to be missed - imagine twisting a 6mm square solid mokume-gane rod over three revolutions with just common hand tools, then cutting into the metal to reveal the star pattern beneath. You will then forge out the rod to become an elegantly patterned mokume bracelet. Please note, there is a fair amount of filing and hammering involved, but persistence is more important then strength! BEG-ADV.
