This round bangle bracelet is shaped from hand-twisted solid sterling silver oval wire (2.5 x 1.7 mm). The thickness of the wire is used to make it a sturdy and durable piece of jewellery.
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.
These bracelets are made as described above – with heat treated sterling silver and 24k gold (pure gold) foil applied on one side of the oval wire, which is then twisted.
They are oxidized to enhance the contrast.
Other sizes or quantities are possible as made to order (1 – 2 weeks to make).
