Keum Boo Workshop
This 2-day workshop will take place on Friday, January 29th from 9:30 am-5:30 pm and Saturday, January 30th from 9:30 am-12:30 pm.
Keum-Boo is an ancient Korean method that uses a gilding technique that applies thin sheets of 22-24 Karat Gold to Silver to make Silver-Gilt. Traditionally, this technique is accomplished by first depleting the surface of sterling silver to bring up the fine layer of fine silver. This technique will raise your jewelry to another level of beauty. One that excites the eye.
Students will learn the technique by watching a demonstration and then performing it on their own pieces of jewelry. Students will provide their own Sterling or Fine Silver in any gauge they like to make a pair of earrings, pendant or bracelet of their choice. Please bring all your creative energy with you, as this is not only a fun technique but a beautiful one.
Students must bring their own sterling or fine silver & must also order their own Keum-Boo from ALLCRAFT in NY.

Ellen Levy is an art jeweler and has been knitting for over 60 years. She finds combining both hobbies and avocations has been an absolute joy. She has been selling her jewelry at art jewelry boutiques and major art shows in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Austin, Texas and southern Florida for the past 15 years and presently sells locally at Whitespace and the Armory Art Center. Ellen Levy’s first career was as an environmental designer, designing sensory stimulation environments for multiply handicapped individuals. Her second career was capital goods sales for one of the two largest hospital equipment companies in the world. Her third career was as executive vice president of a clinical research company that performed research for Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval, from which she retired. Ellen returned to her love of design when she studied jewelry design at the Armory Art Center in West Palm Beach, Florida, the Taos Institute of Art in Taos, New Mexico and from many Master Jewelry Artists throughout the United States. As a graduate student in design, Ellen was deeply influenced by the geometry, form and function of the architects and designers of the Bauhaus School. As a jewelry artist she has transformed her love of form and function into a unique combination of style, form, texture, and color.
