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

David Robertson Artist Blacksmith

I stumbled on Metal Arts Guild by accident and am thrilled to be able to participate in this community. I have been an artist blacksmith for over 20 years now and make my living from my shop 3 hours north west of Toronto in picturesque Bruce County.

I devote a large part of my time to helping the blacksmithing community by teaching courses and supplying equipment. There are many articles on my website Ontario Artist Blacksmith that deals with metal work and smithing.

If on the other hand you are interested in courses I would suggest that you take a look at my Blacksmithing Courses Page. Although I have done some jewellry work in the past, most of my work is on a larger scale. The techniques are directly transferable, just a different scale.
