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 was a stained glass artist for about 25 years before I switched to filigree jewellry and I own and use two knitting machines! Do you sell your wool?

I would love to learn plique-a-jour. It would add another dimension to my jewellry, I think. Too bad I live so far away(Quebec). :( Do you give lessons online?

Right now I am working with 16 gauge Gold-fill wire that I flatten to make a frame for the fine silver filigree wires. What is the gauge of your 20 karat gold wire? Did you get help with your Filigree project? Would you like to learn?

Recently about 2 weeks ago..finally got my website underway. Metalmud.com
Need some good advice from folks who have a site on how to become more visible on the web. Can anyone suggest a few good sites that offer promotion or advertisements..to do just that.....and of coarse then there is the fee. ...which shouldn't be tooooooo outrageous.

just returned from the yukon and walked the trail of the gold miners. what an adventure. after working with silver , copper and brass for 25 years , I will finally try some gold. Purchased a very small amount of fine wire directly from the source and will attempt to do some filigree work. does anyone have some good advice for me. Metal is 20 K. and very soft.
