Keum Boo Like You Never Knew with Bette Barnett

Keum Boo Like You Never Knew - Silver and Gold Foil on Steel
Visiting Artist Workshop with Bette Barnett
Saturday April 25, 2020
in San Diego, CA

Who knew? Keum Boo…on steel? The ancient art of bonding fine gold foil to silver works brilliantly on steel too. Silver foil works as well as gold, bonding beautifully to steel and offering a low-cost alternative to gold. As an added bonus, the patinas that darken steel leave the shine of the gold and silver virtually untouched, so the contrast with steel is extra vibrant. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to create jewelry with beautiful Keum Boo on steel. You’ll create at least one finished piece of jewelry with Keum Boo in this fast-paced and creative workshop.

Bette Barnett is a teacher and art jeweler specializing in steel and gold. She teaches workshops throughout the US and Mexico, and actively pursues research into working with steel. She has published articles on the topic in Lapidary Journal Jewelry Artist, and will presenting a research paper on steel jewelry at the 2020 Santa Fe Symposium.
