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
Inspired by the Roman, Hellenistic and Byzantine jewelry of the Near East, my work focuses on a reinterpretation of these ornate, intricately wrought, gold forms. My pieces seek to create a bridge between the beauty of that ancient cultural heritage and modern aesthetics.
Using traditional jewelry making techniques, I am interested in building a body of work that will be relevant to the present time but also represent, in terms of technique and skill, a link to the jewelry making traditions of the past.
