Ask me about silversmithing techniques, restoration & conservation

Postby silverhammer » Fri Aug 03, 2018 9:03 am

Good day!

I'm here to demystify the world of silversmithing and the care of silver. I'm the founder of the Society of American Silversmiths and have specialized in restoration, conservation, and preservation for the past 34 years.

Wow! Could become a running blog with weekly topics. Wanna start with laying out all you know about the application of marks, the tools, any machinery involved and on and on?

Hello Traintime!

A video is going to be much more effective than having me explain the tools and methods used in hallmarking. Take a look at this excellent video about hallmarking from the Birmingham Assay Office: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_shZ064EnuE.
