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

Claudio Pino

 CLAUDIO PINO is a jewellery designer world renowned especially for his unique sculptural rings. The way he captures color is the source of inspiration for all of Pino’s designs. He juxtaposes icy silver with the

warm glow of gold, calm green emeralds with vivid red rubies, complimented with the fresh hue of white pearls.

Since 1999, Pino's collections have been shown at numerous international festivals and Biennales such as SOFA New York, SOFA Chicago, PalmBeach3,
JMA Hong Kong, Cheongju Biennale, SNAG Conferences as well as at various galleries in North America and Europe.

In 2007, he received the Steel Trophy award « Best in Show 60 Years of MAG
and the Year of Craft »  from the Metal Arts Guild of Canada and later, the Special Prize award at the Cheongju Biennale in South Korea. In addition, his rings are included in the Lark Jewellery Books of 1000 Rings: Inspiring Adornments for the Hand, 500 Wedding Rings: Celebrating a Classic Symbol of Commitment and 500 Gemstone Jewels by the editor, Marthe Le Van.

Claudio Pino's work is always recognized by the fascinating and innovative ways in which he transforms raw materials into unique and extraordinary works of art.

14-karat gold, 925 sterling silver, diamonds, ruby, moonstone
A kinetic ring with a moonstone attached to the center of a mechanism. The stone portrays a drop of water floating freely in space. Even though the stone is fixed in the middle, it is able to pivot 360 degrees in all 6
possible directions, which is represented by each movable ring.

The Tactus Ring draws a bridge between the traditions of the metallic suits of armor worn in the middle ages to the historic representation of jewelry throughout time. This ring restores the importance of precision,expression and precious embellishment. It questions how the sensation of touch has been amplified over the centuries, especially through the influence of digital culture.
