So, I set about recreating the general look/feel of the original. The mokume gane process does not lend itself to whipping up matching sections, even from the same batches. It's inherent and deliberate randomness makes that impossible. But, I think that I came close. As always, the cuttings and scraps from a mokume gane block are sometimes as interesting as the main event. Witness these results, so far:

Please visit the 11BOLDstreet Etsy shop in a couple of weeks to see how these components ultimately get finished!
