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
I have just had some fun making a drop spindle out of copper and will be teaching basic spinning at night school at the univ. knitting seems to be on the upswing again. I had angora rabbits several years ago and am still working on boxes of wool, blending with silk and alpaca .
Spinning, but it l is very time consuming. It takes about 4 hr. to fill a bobbin and another 4 to do the second . I do the occasional custom spinning.
if you need an enamel supplier, i can help.
let me know. r. pallek
