Gottagettadeal - Food Safe Pure Aluminum and Brass Stamping Blanks and Supplies

I'm Lizz Barnes, a jewelry artist whose studio is located in the Warehouse District of Peoria, IL.

I have an art degree from Illinois State University where I studied Art Education and Glass Sculpture. I am a self taught jewelry artist. I teach a variety of jewelry making classes and have an online blog teaching many of these concepts. Check out our blog at www.foodsafemetal.com

Welcome to gottagettadeal where we make and sell jewelry supplies made of food safe aluminum, surgical steel, brass, copper, sterling. We carry a variety of tools and other extra things. Find my custom pieces on Etsy www.etsy.com/shop/DesignsByLizzBarnes

This whole jewelry supply thing started when I was teaching art lessons to a handicapped boy and I couldn't find a nice inexpensive alternative to sterling silver. I wanted his pieces to be just as amazing as any other student, but I knew that in the beginning we didn't want to work in sterling.

I checked into the current aluminum supplies that were available and was not impressed. Everyone was using 3003 aluminum, which is commercially pure, but I was looking for something that would be easy to work with and safe on your skin.

After some investigation I found pure aluminum, 1100. It's soft, takes on texture well and is very safe for your skin. And when polished correctly it has an amazing shine.

I started selling my new items on ETSY and within a month I had to hire people to help. We spent 2 years in my basement. And then in 2013 we moved to the Warehouse District in Downtown Peoria, IL.

I've hired mostly musicians and artists to help me make this crazy business happen. My team, other than being amazing people, have an eye for detail and are not afraid of hard work.

What a joy to be excited about going to work each day!!!

I love what I do - helping customers make the best jewelry possible and leading a team of very gifted young people.

Our ETSY name is gottagettadeal, but the actual name of our company is
Ear in the Envelope Inc. A tip of the hat to Van Gogh cutting off his earlobe.

Please contact me through ETSY messages to get the fastest response.

Thanks!
Lizz

PS
I've tried many tools and supplies over the years. You would not believe the pile of reject tools and supplies I have in my studio. Lucky for you the searching and testing is already done. I will only sell the tools that I would want for my own studio.

Please feel free to send me messages with questions on how to make or find the things you need.
