Gold highlights

Examples of my work
Where to see my work
This page demonstrates my use of the ancient Korean technque of Keum Boo.  This involves careful preparation of the silver surface, then fusing a thin sheet of gold to form a robust gold layer.

Gold cats

Silver cats with gold collars
This pair of cat brooches have just got small gold collars.  You can start to get a feel for the thickness of gold on the left cat.

Gold highlighted earrings

Earrings with gold band
These earrings had the gold leaf fused and then rolled with a pattern plate to get the texture.

Here are some more examples with a touch of gold applied using the Keum Boo technique
I work in gold on request - for example the opal  ring on my rings page and I have had work gold plated - notably the golden hazelnut.
