Learn how to create dramatic Steel and Gold jewelry through workshops and private lessons. You'll receive hands-on experience with steel including sourcing, cutting, forming, texturing, patinating and finishing. All workshops focus on alloying gold, fusing it to steel and bonding it to steel using the Keum Boo technique. In my expanded five-day workshops, you'll learn how to add drama to steel through etching and texturing and how to work with steel wire and perforated steel sheet.


Best of all, you don't need advanced skills to learn the techniques. As long as you're comfortable with a torch, you're good to go.


A week in Puerto Vallarta learning steel and gold? Yes, please!

I'm excited to announce that my 2020 schedule includes a weeklong learning retreat at beautiful Hacienda Mosaico in PV MX. The five day Master Class, Making Magic with Steel and Gold--Etching, Fusing and Keum Boo, is a rare opportunity for a "soup to nuts" creative experience in a beautiful, relaxed setting.
