Window Pattern Keum-Boo Earrings | Jackie Haines


Keum-boo is an ancient Korean gilding technique used to apply thin sheets of gold to silver. Traditionally, this technique is accomplished by first depleting a surface of sterling silver to bring up a thin layer of fine silver. Then gold foil is applied with heat and pressure to produce a permanent diffusion bond.

These earrings feature organic squares of gold foil placed in a “window” pattern against a backdrop of oxidized sterling silver. Attached to the oval-shaped earrings are oxidized silver ear wires.

Measurements: 1 1/2″ long (excluding ear wire), 1/2″ wide

This item is available at the Center for Maine Craft in West Gardiner.

“I make distinctive jewelry for women like you. Maybe it’s a talisman to keep the positive energy flowing or to evoke a favorite memory. Or maybe you just want something to spice up an outfit for a special day or night. I make my jewelry in small batches. It’s either one of a kind or limited edition. I use simple metalsmithing hand tools and techniques to create soulful pieces rich in texture that are made to last a lifetime with proper care.

I work out of a small studio in my backyard in beautiful Downeast Maine. I find inspiration everywhere whether it’s an insect in my garden or a sunset from a mountaintop. I carefully hand select all the gemstones in my collections and use sustainable practices. I use recycled metals and ethically sourced stones. I welcome custom requests-just drop me an email and we’ll get something started!”
