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

Do you want to help us make our designs in sterling silver?

Hello,We are jewelry designers with the desire to re create our existing designs in sterling silver. We have exclusive copyrights of our designs and we need to commission mold, casting, finishing and also developing the new collections. It does not have to be done all in one place and we are open to work with studios outside of Calgary. Please let me know if we could help each other :DThank you so muchLorenaSee More

Share some of your career highlights or goals.
I'm a sculptor jeweller and now I do research about contemporary jewelry. I like to mix different materials into my works. I'm interested about the structure of things, particularly the way they are assembled.
Issue du domaine de la joaillerie, je chemine dans le milieu des métiers d’art depuis plus de 10 ans. Orientant parallèlement mes recherches en création depuis 8 ans en sculpture installative , je concilie actuellement mes deux passions en abordant la joaillerie par une approche sculpturale du bijou. À l’image des lieux qui accueillent mes sculptures, le corps de celui qui porte mes bijoux devient le support de l’œuvre tout comme les socles ou les murs sur lesquels ils sont appelés à être exposés.

Le matériau est à tout moment l’élément déclencheur de mes inspirations. Les structures que je conçois sont issues de recherches sur la matière et ses propriétés. La flexibilité, la transparence, la réflexion de la lumière ou son absorption par la coloration noire, sont les qualités que je recherche. Je détourne la fonction des matériaux industriels que j’emploie, allant jusqu’à évacuer la référence à leur utilité initiale. Je transforme ces objets du quotidien (salière, tuyau, moustiquaire, boudin de reliure...) en matière première. Pour ce faire, j’utilise des assemblages inspirés de techniques textiles, de l’architecture et du design.
