We apologise for the delay in response to your question. We just did not have enough staff to answer all the e-mails we get. Regarding the lead content restrictions for jewellery, you might find this link useful:
Guide to the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act, (CPSIA) for Small Businesses, Resellers, Crafters and Charities www.cpsc.gov/ABOUT/Cpsia/smbus/cpsiasbguide.pdf
As regards to children products, the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act sets new limits on lead content in any children’s product as defined in the Act, this is effective on February 10, 2009. Here is the link for the CPSIA:
