Making Kimchee

When I'm not making jewelry, I occasionally act as my husband's food stylist/assistant for his blog, eatdrinkman.com. Kimchee is pickled cabbage and a staple in the Korean diet. People either love it or hate it. So here I am helping him out by spreading the kimchee sauce all over the cabbage. Once this is done, he puts it in a sealed container to let it ferment for a few days, and then voila, the kimchee is ready. It's really not as simple as I make it out to be, so if you want to read about the details, check out his blog.

And if you're wondering about those earrings I'm wearing, they are the eternity pearl earrings that are available in my shop. The gray pleated top is from H&M.
