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

Biography

British Columbia metal artist and jewellery designer Julie Kemble graduated from art school with a major in fabric art, after which she established herself as a successful designer and fabricator of large painted silk wall hangings, fabric banners and three dimensional architectural pieces.  Her fabric constructions have appeared in exhibitions, collections, and publications in Canada and the US.

The ornate body adornments and miniature metal sculptures that she creates today, under the name of Giulietta Designs, represent a continuity of her artistic vision emphasized by her passion for color, texture and an unpretentious sense of design inspired by frequent travels to faraway and exotic places.

        Using various metalsmithing and assembly techniques such as soldering, cold connections, enamelling, texturing, forging, wrapping and stringing, Julie fabricates the components for each body adornment and sculpture herself.  Exceptions are the found elements and semi- precious stones that she carefully selects which, once combined with the metals, result in pieces that evoke her years of experience as a designer with a keen awareness for composition, colour and texture.

A bold, courageous life is large, irregular, asymmetrical and colorful .  These same characteristics could be used to describe my new collection of textured, mixed metal one-of-a-kind body adornments.

Perfection is a subjective term.  In my “other life” as an educator teaching in large institutions I’ve had to be very disciplined and obedient.   I’ve learned to work well between the lines.  With this collection… I surrender to spontaneity and to the natural tendencies of the materials I work with! 

In this collection I’m not interested in striving for absolute perfection.  For once, I strive to find recognition… pleasure… acceptance of my chosen materials… of myself!...  by allowing for an organic and unpredictable process that emphasizes texture, design and composition punctuated by bursts of colour.   With this new collection I’m enjoying a process that is more spontaneous, organic and, dare I say… playful?  I’m learning a new discipline of not taking the medium, or myself, too seriously.  I’m learning not to presume an exact outcome but to incorporate mistakes as if they were premeditated.

I now have the confidence to say that the richness of my life is almost always in the so called “mistakes.”  Choices, made consciously or unconsciously, that may not meet the approval of others… are accepted.  This kind of surrender does not come easily.  It’s a discipline in itself.
