Safety Requirements

Hello! I'm a beginner jewelry maker currently focused on sterling silver/ copper wire wrapped jewelry. This is mostly just a hobby, but I'd eventually like to make enough pieces to sell in local crafts fairs or potentially online. I'm wondering what kind of safety requirements need to be met to do this? For example, I know there are certain regulations regarding lead content in adult/children's jewelry that need to be met. As a beginning artist, how does one show that I'm using safe materials?…See More

Hello Everyone!

I was just wondering how Nuit Blanche was?
Did the slide show work out well?
Did everyone have fun.

Hello All,

Sara Cummins here, I am taking over Kathryn's position as administrator, please bear with me as I get used to all the various aspects of this position. I am in the office one day a week, usually Thursdays and I'll check in from home as often as I can.
Nuit Blanche was fantastic! We had Terj the blacksmith working until about 2:00 am and the slide-show that Alastair Crombie put together for us was played all night on the outside of our building. The images looked wonderful and we had a lot of people stop to watch the presentation and ask questions. We ran a raffle for some jewellery pieces that were donated for the event and we raised about $350.00 from that.
I'll find out about getting the slide-show posted to this site so everyone can see it.
I can't be sure about everyone else having fun (I assume so) but I certainly did!

Hi Melody,
The night was a real success. We all had a lot of fun, and it was estimated that between 10 000 and 15 000 people came through Parkdale's Nuit Blanche installations. There was great feedback from the co-ordinators at Nuit Blanche, and we at the Parkdale BIA felt it was a far better year than last year. So many exhibitions, including ours, were very well received.
And did I mention we had fun! There was lots of leftover food from the AGM to snack on, and Dana brewed us a big pot of coffee to keep us all going.
I'm looking forward to planning next year's event - which will be getting started soon. If anyone would like to present proposals, or ideas, please let me know. We are looking for suggestions.
Kathryn
I just noticed that Alistair posted a video of Terje working on the night of Nuit Blanche. Check it out here.
