Raden (螺鈿) is a Japanese term for one of the decorative techniques used in traditional crafts such as Japanese lacquerware and woodwork. It refers to a method of inserting a board-like material, which is a cut out part of the mother of pearl inside the shell, into the carved surface of lacquer or wood, or a craft made by using this method. The kanji for ra (螺) means shell and den (鈿) means inlaid. “Raden” is a term used only for the technique or work of inlaying thin layers of pearl shells. (From Wikipedia)
