Sterling silver ring with 23.5k Keum Boo gold representing the spreading of mushroom spores and regeneration of life.
Carved out of wax, cast into silver and delicately keum bood.
Keum Boo is an ancient Korean gilding technique used to apply pure gold (23.5-24k) sheet to silver, making silver-gilt via a fusion bond.
In an effort to continue the sense of interconnection inspired by mushrooms a portion of sales from Collection V will be donated to complete the creation of the Creative Field Guide to Northeastern Oklahoma, a book made to encourage middle-school-aged youth and up to learn about Northeastern Oklahoma's native species and to create art inspired by experiences in nature. Edited by Liz Blood and with contributions from 40+ Oklahoma artists and writers—including original fiction, poetry, visual art, and art and writing prompts—this book will be printed in early 2022 and given away for free to Tulsa-area kids.
