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

Thank you very much for responding to my interest. I have a jewelry show coming up in nov and am busy as all get out at the moment. I hope to do work with metal clay after this year ends because my scheduel frees up considerably. Will you keep me posted on the workshops in the new year please. Jody

Great work at the outdoor show, love the concept!

Hi Shannon, yes it was too bad that you had to miss doing the show this year. We had a terrific turnout none the less. I am still letting all the participants know the results.
The opening reception on the 23rd of April if you can make it in.
Hope the Newfoundland workshop went well.
