THE BUSINESS OF JEWELLERY

Stay tuned. We're working on a compilation of resources for members looking to dip their toes into running their own bench jeweller, jewellery wholesaling or custom business. In the meantime, if you have any suggestions for inclusion, feel free to email us at contact@vancouvermetalarts.com.

Coming Soon

STUDIO & WORKSPACE MANAGEMENT

Check back often! We've begun to put together a checklist for studio operators in the Metro Vancouver region that checks the boxes on routine and crucial things, like where to find your local fire bylaws, where to get your gas canisters refilled, wastewater treatment and assembling a safety data sheet binder.
