Jewelry Class Description

Keum-Boo on Silver

Prerequisite: Level 1 Intro class

Keum-Boo is an ancient Korean technique using pure 24 karat gold foil (very thinly rolled out pure gold sheet) and permanently attaching it to fine silver and sterling silver objects without the use of solder. The process is simple and requires minimal effort and minimal tools, making it accessible even for beginners.

The use of this technique allows you to incorporate the richness of a high karat gold w/ out the high karat price.Using raw fine silver and sterling silver sheet, participants will learn:

  • how to cut patterns and handle the delicate Keum-Boo foil properly
  • which tools are required for optimum results
  • proper procedure applying the foil on to silver
  • how to utilize and execute designs using this method

All students are encouraged to find their own voice in the creative process with instructor guidance as we don’t work off cookie cutter models.
