Timoku™ is one of the crowning elements used in the Edward Mirell® collection is Timoku™. The name was derived by combining the term Mokume Gane and the atomic symbol for titanium, Ti. Mokume Gane is an ancient Japanese metalworking technique that when translated means "wood-grain metal". Timoku™ design symbolizes the joining of two souls into a single integrated creation, far greater in strength than its components, yet still preserving the essence of individuality.
During the Samurai Era, Mokume Gane was used to create adornments on the handles of the Samurai's sword. These marks were considered to be symbols of status and wealth. Today the technique is used to create contemporary art and jewelry. The process involves layering thin sheets of black and gray titanium and exposing them to extreme heat and pressure which causes the layers to fuse rather than melt together. The end result is a unique and distinctive layered pattern in the metal that mimics the grains on wood. It is a representation of the harmony of nature as embodied in wood, while having the strength and polish of metal.
