About the Society

The Society of American Silversmiths (SAS) was founded in 1989 as the world's only professional organization solely devoted to the preser-vation and promotion of contemporary silversmithing. Its Artisan members, those silversmiths both practicing and retired, who now or used to smith as a livelihood, are provided with support, networking, discounts, and greater access to the market. All Artisans have been juried into SAS based on their outstanding technical skill as silversmiths. In addition to nurturing student silversmiths, SAS also educates the public in demystifying silversmithing techniques and the aesthetic value of this art form through its free consulting service, and interactive Web site. Our Web site, located at, is the largest and most comprehensive site devoted to silversmithing on the Internet.
