The Art of Keum Boo - Cup of Gold Pendant

Learn how to add beautiful 24k gold to your silver jewellery - use your leftover gold foil!

Course Summary

This class continues my series on Keum Boo, an ancient Korean technique  that literally translates as “attached gold”. In the first class I  taught you how the technique works and kept the design fairly simple so  that we could concentrate on process of attaching the gold - this time you will learn a great way of using up the little leftover pieces of 24k gold foil! Although the class project is a pendant, this design can be easily adapted for earrings or even cufflinks.

Keum Boo bonds 24k gold and fine silver together, with no solder  involved, just heat and pressure. It is a strong permanent bond,  hundreds of times thicker than gold plating. As you can see from the  class project a little gold goes a long way, making this a great way of  adding the richness of gold to your jewellery without breaking the bank.  It is a magical technique, and one that I never tire of teaching! I love the look on my students’ faces when they realise that their gold  design has bonded beautifully onto the silver.

An understanding of the information in the first class in this series, the Golden Butterfly Pendant class, is useful. All of the Keum Boo classes can be found in The Art of Keum Boo course bundle.

Materials needed: sterling silver sheet approximately 0.8mm thick, 24k gold Keum Boo foil, small piece of wire for a bail, chain to complete the pendant.
