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

Actually, bronze is great to work with... it is between copper and brass as regards workability, and I use it a lot. Besides it's functional qualities, it has way more interesting cultural/historical connotations. Not sure where you get sheet metal out there... I end up buying 3' x 8' sheets of .032" (about 18-20 gauge) bronze from a company that usually sells it to builders and architects...

Always glad to see another patina junkie :D I am just heat colouring bronze, then sealing the surface with wax.

Yes, Don was at the Arts Centre... taught for a week. People lovely, he said.

We are going to be in Victoria again this summer. Don will be teaching a 1-week bookbinding course, and I'll be teaching 2 days on metal techniques that bookbinders can use to create book covers.

The organizers have asked me to see if there is a metal group on the Island that would be interested in having me teach something, to help them defray the costs of airfare. Any ideas about who I might talk with in Victoria or Denman?

Cheers,
Mary

Hi, Mary!

My husband, Don Taylor, was on Denman last August to teach bookbinding. I don't suppose you ran into him?

Beautiful work, by the way...
