Part 1 Session 7: Textures with Keum Boo
In this workshop you will learn how to create different textures onto sheet silver measuring 5cms x 2cms and then make it into a pendant or pair of earrings or make smaller earrings and a pendant. You will start with a piece of silver and once your piece is finished you will use the ancient Korean technique of Keum Boo to fuse a piece of 24ct gold foil onto the silver and oxidise it if you wish too.
Option A : You will be given a length of 1mm wire. Cut your wire into 5 pieces which are the correct size using the measuring guage borrowed for this exercise. File the edges flat and using your fingers and pliers bring the edges together to join the ends into a ring. Solder the edges together and pickle.
Option B: File and sand the edges of your silver hearts.
