James Binnion


I made my first ring when I was 14 years old in Mr Boor’s crafts class at Menlo Atherton High School in 1971. Since then I have done many things including almost 9 years on nuclear submarines and working as an electrical engineer in the Silicon Valley. But my first love has always been making things with my hands and especially jewelry.

I taught myself how to make mokume gane in the early 80’s and have been exploring all the facets of the technique ever since.
