Additional Information
Description:
Using the ancient art of Keum Boo and patterned rolling mill papers, we’ll create our own rustic silver “cabochon” dressed up in gold and subtle texture. Then we’ll build a dramatic multi-prong setting, including hand fabricated “leaf” forms for interest. Plus, the back of the pendant will include a functional pin stem assembly (built from scratch, of course!) that converts to a hidden bail, making this a piece that can be worn as either a pendant or a brooch!
