This 24K Gold Keum-boo Bird Necklace is a simply elegant piece! I made this fine silver (99.9 Silver Metal Clay) bird pendant using a mold I made of an antique button. It has an overlay of 24 carat gold foil in the ancient Korean technique of Keum-boo. 24 carat gold foil is applied with heat and pressure producing a permanent bond. Patina added to darken the background and give it dimension. Piece hangs from gold filled chain that turns into sterling silver chain. The chain measures 22 1/2 to 25″ with the extender.

As a young girl, I made jewelry with seed beads and never forgot the joy in wearing something that was handmade. As an adult, I began metalsmithing but it was only recently that I found out that my grandmother metal smithed on her front porch in Vermont as a young women. I only knew her as a talented oil painter and was excited to “feel” the connection with her once again. It is my love of the past that has me drawn to work with antique sterling silverware. You will find “Spoon-Up-Memories” as an individual section in my shop. It is borrowing from the past, up-cycling well loved sterling silverware into unique jewelry.
Everything in my shop is handmade by me! I use metalwork, Art Clay, up-cycled antique sterling silverware, wire wrap and beaded jewelry in 14K gold filled, brass, copper and sterling silver wire.
You will find one of kind pieces with prices ranging from $15 to $150, come take a look.
