Copper fused with 24K gold


#1

Hello, I saw a clasp in a bead shop that was copper based fused with
24K gold, and it caused the clasp to have a multi-colored finish in
varied places of the clasp. Does anyone know what this technique is
called and/or how to do it? I’m looking for step by step instructions
on how to do this.

Thank you,
Verlynda

Hi Verlynda

Basically you treat it like wire soldering, you just have make sure
that what you are putting it on melts higher than the fold alloy
being added. see http://www.ganoksin.com/gnkurl/1g7 for examples.

Are you sure it wasn’t plated? CIA

This doesn’t sound difficult, but we need to see a picture, of what
it is you are trying to do.

How can I share files and pictures with the list?

It sounds like keum boo, which can be done on copper as well as
silver.
