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

Paul McClure

Paul McClure is a designer and maker of contemporary jewellery. His work is represented in private and public collections including Canadian Museum of Civilization; Barcelona Museum of Decorative Arts; Espace Solidor, Cagnes-sur-Mer, France; and National Museum of Scotland. McClure received his training from NSCAD University, Halifax, Canada (BFA, 1989); Escola Massana, Barcelona, Spain; and National College of Art and Design, Dublin, Ireland (MA, 1999).

McClure’s work is often described as sculptural, though it is jewellery’s wearability and relationship with the body that interests him most. The scientific fields of biology, pathology and genetics inspire his work and his aesthetic derives from microscopic and anatomical views of the human body.

As well as maintaining a private studio practice, McClure is an educator, writer and design curator in the McClure & Egan curatorial partnership. He is a founder and organizer in various community arts projects including Toronto International Jewellery Festival (2013), OBJECToronto Expos (2004-2009) and ALLEYJAUNT festivals (2004-2007). From 2005-2012 he was Adviser in Jewellery & Metals for the Craft Studios at Harbourfront Centre. McClure has taught at NSCAD University, OCAD University and currently is professor in Jewellery in the Centre for Arts & Design at George Brown College, Toronto.

Paul McClure is represented by Galerie Noel Guyomarc’h in Montréal
