CONNECT WITH YOUR INNER SAMURAI!
Shibuichi is ancient metal working technique that was first created by the Chinese during the Han Dynasty. The process involves the melting of fine silver onto copper. The Japanese adopted this technique, in an effort to strengthen their Katana Samurai Swords. While it didn't strengthen their swords it did make them much more beautiful and was used extensively to decorate Samurai swords and armor.
Please note - Each piece of Shibuichi jewelry is custom made and therefore unique. While very similar to these photos, they do vary somewhat. If you would like me to send a photo of the actual work that you would receive, please contact me and I will be happy to send one.
The metal in these pieces has been sealed to maintain color and prevent tarnishing . I make each piece by hand and have hand-stamped the back side with my initials as a symbol of authenticity.
