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
Hope you had a good time during the holidays, and I wish you all the best in 2010! May this be a great year!!
I should be moving back in the end of June if all goes well. I can't wait :) I will be very busy until then and I am sure that time will fly. I am going to try learn as much as I can about the lost wax and glass enamel work before I leave :)
thank you so much, I am glad you like my shop. I love to combine materials and I am working on some designs that will include felt and metal. I also had a look at some of your pictures, beautiful pieces, I especially liked this gold pendant that had gorgeous curves. I look forward to seeing your shop wheni get there:)
have a great day
Thank you so much for the links and support. I am still in Greece, and have just started taking some more lessons. For now its just twice a week but I hope to have 3-4 classes a week after November. I would love to be able to make a living doing what I love when I get to Vancouver. The plan is that I move in the end of June, after I travel to Toronto and Ottowa I will come to Vancouver and settle there.
I'll be posting some new photos of my work soon, and I just made a facebook page for my etsy shop, have a look : www.vantidesigns.etsy.com and http://www.facebook.com/pages/Vanti-designs/109788668814?created
