Unique earrings combining my Gold Chaos technique with ancient Korean technique keum-boo.
Tiny bits of 18k yellow gold are fused into silver surface to made these mixed metal earrings. Circles in the middle are made with keum-boo technique.
Keum-boo is an ancient Korean technique used to apply thin sheets (foil) of gold to silver. Traditionally, this technique is accomplished by first heat treating a surface of sterling silver to bring up a thin layer of fine silver. Then 24 carat gold foil is applied with heat and pressure. The resulting bond is permanent.
They are oxidized to enhance the contrast. Back of the earrings is black/dark grey.
Dimensions: circles diameter 20 mm (0.8 in.), full length 35 mm (1.4 in.)
