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

Just won the Premiere's Award in Prince Edward Island for Best in Show at the Eptek Cultural Centre. I taught a Jewellery and Metalwork Program in Canada's North for 3 years. I once hosted a visit with Canadian Metalsmith, Lois Betteridge. I made her sushi and she gave me some of her chasing tools. An amazing woman!
While a student, I met Tim McCreight at a Jewellery Symposium in Maine. He's super nice!

I looked at the images of your jewelry.
I really like the variety.
You obviously like to experiment with different things. And that is a good thing.
If you need anything at all please let me know. I do custom cutting to fit your design as well as standard gem cuts.
Hi Gail. I am so glad I found this place, it is just what I need and how wonderful you found me.
Jewelery goes very slowly but surely. It's hard to believe but I finally got a torch. I am so excited about the abyss of creative possibility... I'm rather aw struck at the moment. Congratulations on your award what a great achievement!
