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
Hi Anna - just following up on the MAGazine article - we are getting pretty close to the wire! Were you able to put something together? Also wondering if you have a print quality photo of one of your cloisonne rings that we could use to illustrate a short piece about what cloisonne is? in haste, Catherine
No worries Anna - we can always use information for the Suppliers page and the Galleries page (also any other resources you can think of, like government programs etc. I love your work by the way. It has been delightful for me to find so many other enamelists here!
Thanks for the tips and thanks for the heads up about the Flick'r button. I tried mine and it doesn't work either - so I have asked Sara (the other website contact - who is smarter than me ;-) to take a look .
When you do teach classes, feel free to post them here. We are drumming up a bunch of new BC members with this BC feature. Please also let me know and I will add them to my site as well.
Thanks for uploading a photo - it is now featured on the website. Please do let us know your favorite BC Galleries and suppliers so that we can add them to our resources section.
Also, on a more personal note, if you know of any enameling classes in BC - please do let me know about those too. I am also an enamelist and I know how hard it is to get good enameling info! I am trying to list classes across Canada on my own site www.emporiumvitreum.ca
