Keum-Boo: Applying Gold Accents to Silver :0316:1

Thu, Mar 16, 2017 -- 6:30 PM-9:30 PM at Creator Haven LLC

Love the look of gold, but not the price? Keum-Boo is the ancient art of applying gold foil to silver in jewelry-making. It is surprisingly easy to do, needs very little equipment, and can take your jewelry to a new level of sophistication. It’s easy enough for a beginner, but adds sophistication to even advanced jewelry work.

Keum-Boo can be used on fine silver, sterling silver sheet or metal clay. In this class, you will make a pair of fine silver earrings. You will texture your earrings, add the gold, and finish the earrings in class. You will be using pre-made gold foil, but we will discuss how to roll your own foil to save on cost. We’ll also talk about depletion gild sterling silver to use in this process. (although for this class we will save time by using fine silver.)

All tools and equipment provided. Bring your own magnifying eyewear if desired. The Optional Materials kit includes fine silver earring blanks, gold foil and earring findings. If you prefer, you can bring your own pre-made fine silver piece and gold foil.

Wear comfortable “work” clothes, with full shoes, hair tied back, and no scarves or sleeves that could present a hazard.
