An introduction to Keum Boo

Keum Boo is one of my favourite jewellery making techniques - it is simply magical!

The Keum Boo course bundle takes you from your very first steps in Keum Boo and show you all the wonderful techniques that you can use with it, but if you would like a bit more information about what materials and equipment are needed before enrolling on that course you've come to the right place!

This downloadable pdf is just one in a collection of free tutorials. You can enrol on each one individually or enrol on the whole bundle so that you don't miss out on new classes!

You probably already have most of the equipment you need!

Most of the equipment that you need for Keum Boo can be found in the standard jewellery making equipment list, especially in the soldering kit. However, you will also need a heat source. The download describes the different heat sources available, and the pros and cons of each.

Joanne Tinley

Tutor and Founder of The Jeweller's Bench

The Jeweller's Bench is run by Joanne Tinley. She has been making her own jewellery for as long as she can remember and left her first career as a school teacher to set up business as a  jewellery designer and tutor 15 years ago. She is
self-taught and like many people started with wire and beads. Learning how to solder, however, opened up a whole new world of jewellery making,  one that she is keen to share!
