Samurai jewelry

The samurai sword is a true work of art composed of finely crafted elements in magnolia wood, silk, horn and lacquer. Marc Auclert has created bracelets and necklaces from the old gold menuki mounted on either side of the grip. Beautiful.

  • Bracelet set with a pair of 17th century gold menuki featuring tigers

  • Pair of menuki shishi (lion-shaped) holding an opal

  • Pair of gold menuki shishi (lion-shaped) turned into earrings
