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

Johanna Brierley’s lifelong fascination with jewellery can be traced back to a childhood spent rummaging through her grandmother’s jewellery chest. From an early age, she developed an enthusiasm for found objects and a curiosity about the various ways in which an object worn on a body will interact with the body itself. Whether she is discovering shiny, unusual shapes of glass and stone along the beach or scouring antique markets for objects with a unique past, Johanna’s work is informed by her passion for collecting and her eye for the exceptional and the unexpected.
Born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Johanna graduated from the University of Manitoba with a degree in English. She then spent three years studying for a Diploma of Jewellery Arts at George Brown College in Toronto, where she graduated at the top of her class. Afterwards, she obtained a Master of Arts in English from McGill University in Montreal, her research focusing on found poetry and the relationship between words and their function as objects. Once her formal education was complete, Johanna embarked on a career in the jewellery industry. She has since worked with a number of acclaimed jewellery designers in both Canada and the United States.

hi johanna,
i too am an emerging jewelry artist in the 'peg... i've recently started a jewelry group that meets monthly to encourage and support one another since working at a jeweler's bench can be a bit solitary at times :) if you'd be interested in joining us sometime drop me a line at k.jill.peters[at]gmail.com
all the best,
jill
