Oxidized Sterling Silver Mushroom Cap Ring with Keum Boo. Hand formed in wax before being cast in 100% recycled silver.
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.
