Add pure 23.5K gold to a simple pair of sterling silver earrings! Keum Boo is an ancient Korean art that uses a hot plate and burnishers to permanently bond designs with thin gold sheet on sterling silver. First, design a simple pair of earrings by cutting, filing, drilling and texturing sterling silver sheet. Then learn to apply very thin gold foil design elements to your design using agate burnishers. Finish by learning how to make your own sterling silver ear wires.
Please note: several people have perfume allergies so please don’t wear fragrance to class. Thank you for your understanding
