Make a pair of beautiful contemporary keum-boo earrings for pierced ears in a day.
Keum-boo is an ancient Korean technique, using diffused heat to fuse pure gold foil to silver creating a rich surface that can then be further enhanced by roller printing with watercolour paper. This project might also appeal to someone with some jewellery skills who would like to learn two fascinating surface decoration techniques that can be used individually or together. At the end of the course, even a complete beginner will be able to wear their earrings home.
