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

I'd love to get some of my work seen at a show or something one of these days. I'm also looking at possibilities on the commercial side of metalshaping craft as well.

Hey ken, welcome to the community. Great hat there, what a concept! But i don't know why you call yourself an amateur - looks PRO to me. I haven't yet worked in aluminum, perhaps i should give it a whack. Where do you sell your work? cheers, alastair
