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

Charles Funnell

Charles Funnell Striving to create hollowware and jewellery that eliminates extraneous information in the search for purity is one of my goals. It is the essence that speaks loudest. I am constantly learning and refining  techniques that allow my expression to be truer to my vision. I want the concept to inform my process and not be bound to any particular technique.  A common element within my work is a sense of movement, sometime real sometimes imagined. This movement or energy courses through the created and seeks to break the bonds of gravity and even reality.

Creatively, all I can do is push against my own boundaries and technical abilities, to constantly evolve, grow and interpret as an artist. I believe that the problem solving process is also key to my growth as an artist. It is through this process that I create moments of clarity and resolution that all artists struggle for as creative beings. It is the “Eureka” moment!
