Studio Mew Chiu

Keum-boo is an ancient Korean technique of fusing 24K gold foil to silver.  The thickness of keum-boo foil is much thicker and more durable than gold plating/vermeil.  This allows for the look of high karat gold without the cost of solid gold. 

The discs are created by heating silver to its molten state and squashing it with a graphite paddle to create a one-of-a-kind textured disc.  Earrings are made to order (2 week for fabrication and shipping time).  Discs are approximately .5" and 1". 

Made with a sterling silver earring post and 18K jump ring.  Can also be made with 18K earring posts or ear wire.
