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

In what area of the metal arts do you work?
Tell us about your education.
My first experience in making jewelry was at Nascad. I took a part-time silversmithing course in Halifax a couple of years ago. I then moved to Vancouver and I traveled to and from Seattle to take classes at Danaca Design. I have been learning through friends that are goldsmiths and reading books that help me to teach myself on my own bench.
I am looking into more classes at Acad for the fall.
