Keum boo Jewellery Keum boo (attached gold) is an ancient Korean gilding technique that involves applying very thin sheets of 24 karat gold foil to silver. During this workshop you will learn how to apply sheets of gold foil to a sheet of fine silver. You will also learn various texturing techniques so that you can add texture to your silver and gold sheet before cutting a shape or shapes. You can either cut a shape using a piercing saw (better if you have previous experience of this although you can have a practice on the day), or punch out a shape using a disc cutter. (I have various shapes including circle, heart, start, flower and butterfly). You can use your sheet to either make a pendant or earrings or both depending on how you choose to use for silver. Materials included - 1 sheet of fine silver (4 x 4 cm in size) plus one half sheet of 24 karat gold approximately 2.5 x 3.5 cm which is enough to make one of the following options - 1 large statement pendant smaller pendant and earrings 2-3 pair of earrings 2 smaller pendants The number of items made depends on the size and shape you choose and how you use your silver. The gold sheet can be used to add small elements of gold to your designs or you can punch out shapes using craft punches. You can also patina your final pieces for a gold on black result. Findings such as jump rings and earring wires are also included.
