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

One of the things I do as Editor of MAGazine is pull together all of the detail information that goes along with the stories we publish.  Each issue features a "Contributors Page" where we give our readers a glimpse of who you are and what the focus of your work is.  The bios are usually about 50 words long, and includes your name, the name of your company/line, a short sentence on your current work and your website (if you have one). Some people include funny quips about themselves or comments about their aspirations.

If you are being featured in or writing for MAGazine, the first place I usually look for bio information is your portfolio page on the MAG website.

It surprises me how little detail people post, and yet it's such a wonderful and valuable marketing tool! 

It may seem intimidating to write, but basically all you need to do is answer these questions:  Who am I?  What do I do?  Why do I do it in the way that I do?  Where can people see it?

One or two sentences for each question will quickly add up to 50 words. 

So, take a couple of minutes and update the information under the career highlights section of your profile.  Your page visitors (and your Editor!) will thank you!
