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

Share some of your career highlights or goals.
I have found a way to marry my passions for horses and fine metal work. I am desiging and producing jewellery with an equestrian theme and Art Nouveau style. Another of my lines focuses solely on the Art Nouveau style and takes an influence from elegant lines found in flowers and other natural forms. I look forward to starting work in bronze soon.
