This brooch is made from 925 silver with 24ct Gold foil highlight, using the ancient Korean technique of Keum Boo.
The silver is annealed to bring a fine silver layer to the surface, which is then slightly removed using pumice powder. This process is repeated a number of time until the surface is ready to receive the 24ct gold foil. Each piece of gold foil is cut by hand and placed on the silver, then with a controlled heat the foil is then fused to the silver.
This work is hallmarked. As each piece is handmade yours will vary slightly from those pictured.
Product care: To clean use a soft tooth brush with a small amount of washing up liquid under warm water and pat dry with cloth. DO NOT USE SILVER DIP as the pin is made from steel and will discolour silver.
It measures 28mm x 41mm and weigh 10.6g.
Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
