SJS is excited to welcome back Jayne Redman from Portland, Maine!
Keum-boo is a beautiful and cost effective technique used to bond pure gold and silver to the surface of jewelry and hollowware.
In this workshop you will learn all the basics: rolling your own 24k gold or fine silver foil, applying it to three dimensional, flat, and textured metal surfaces, and techniques for finishing.
Jayne will be demonstrating unique ways she has developed to use the technique in production as well as one-of-a-kind work in silver and 18k gold. Students will be creating samples in class and may bring finished pieces (with stones unset) in sterling, fine silver, argentium, 18k Royal Yellow Gold and 18k Palladium White Gold (both from Hoover and Strong) to embellish as well.
Students from the Die Forming and Chasing and Repousse workshop before this one, can bring any silver pieces from that class that they'd like to keum boo.
Kit fee of $50 due the first day of class and payable to Jayne Redman.
Kit includes some tools and metal for the projects demonstrated.
Class fees include sterling and gold for students to use during class.
Students must have experience in and recent practice with basic jewelry fabrication skills, like sawing, filing, using a flex shaft, etc. For example, completion of our Basic Jewelry 1 (weekend or 8 week course) workshop is a good prerequisite for this class.
Location: Silvera Jewelry School, Berkeley CA
