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

Do you want to help us make our designs in sterling silver?

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

Interview with Catherine Crowe

MAG: What led you down this career path? Was there a recognizable ' aha' moment in your life?



CC: Very definitely. It came when I first travelled back to Ireland - my father's native land. When Dad came to Canada, after the 2nd world war it was not a place friendly to the Irish. People forget how much prejudice there was. Lots of job listings had a codicil "Irish need not apply". So he worked hard to get rid of his Irish accent and culture in order… Continue

Interview with Janis Kerman

What do you love most about being an artist/designer?



I guess I love the freedom to create, to realize a vision/ an aesthetic and to have that be made into a piece that someone will cherish is very special.



Your designs are instantly recognizable - did you have a clear vision of your style & brand from the beginning?



I can’t say that I’ve…

Hi Sara,
That seemed like a very clever fix. I was able to update my profile! Thanks!

On the profile settings, it asks the question "for non-individuals, are you a...gallery, organization, school, guild" but it won't let me update my profile without clicking on one of these options. But I am not a non-individual, and am none of these things...
I also noticed that jewellers who have recently joined have HAD to click on one of these options.
Just wanted to let you know that was happening.

Hi Ryan,
Thanks for your message. I was not sure where to post news. (It would be so nice to have a section for member's news in each profile!!!). Also, may I ask you why you deleted it without telling me first- or why you did'nt transfer it directly to the forum? Now if I want to post it I have to re-write it and find the pic again.... oh well, beside that I think the site is quite nice!
All the best, Claudio
