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
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
Do you consider yourself a professional, student or emerging artist. Are you a gallery, school, organization or guild?
In what area of the metal arts do you work?
Tell us about your education.
My name is Emily Seaboyer, I am a graduate of the Nova Scotia College of Art& Design (NSCAD) University- I hold a bachelor's degree in Jewellery Design & Metalsmithing with Minors in both Drawing and Art History. I work from my home studio in rural Nova Scotia, which is happily shared with my husband and two lovely cats- Scam & Nimbus.
My work is very often inspired by organic textures and tactile surfaces- and is always very process oriented. I am facinated by the fact that the things we choose to decorate ourselves with bare witness to our life's experiences. It is an honnor to create jewellery that will be considered important to another person, and is a source of great joy for me to share.
Share some of your career highlights or goals.
As an emerging artist in 2005, I exhibited my work alongside some of the most talented professionals in the country as a part of the "Northern Lights Exhibition" at Toronto's Design Exchange. Since that time I have found opportunities to show my work in local galleries and to devote time to the development of my studio & expansion of my business.
I am currently working on an exciting new collection of work titled Cloud 9. Currently the collection boasts beautiful gemstone and rose-cut diamond pendants, but will soon include extravigant mixed-metal engagemnt rings!
