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

Spaces available in new Jewellery/ Art studio in Vancouver

Hello Friends,

I am about to sign a lease on a studio, and am looking for 2 really great long-term studio mates for February 1! It's suitable for other jewellers or other artists who don't need a huge space.
The space is a 600 square foot suite of offices on the second floor of a 2-storey building. The common area will have some shared jewellery equipment (polishing machine, rolling mill, and vise), as well as…

Wunderbar! Bis dann!!

I've never been to a SNAG conference , so I'm kind of pumped ... Just have a big order to finish before I go, so I will arrive exhausted for sure, but it'll be good to get together with people who have the same priorities. Looking forward to meeting you.

Hi there, Karina.


Cool stuff! I see you went to Germany; that's where I'm from! Alas, I live on the East Coast of Canada now. I'll be coming up to Vancouver for a day after the SNAG conference in Seattle, and would like to check out a few possible galleries. Do you know of any? Any pointersa would be much appreciated!
