My Guest on the Thursday, March 17th episode of MetalSmith BenchTalk is Jeffrey Herman, Silver Restoration & Conservation Expert and Founder of the Society of American Silversmiths http://www.silversmithing.com/


A little bit about Jeffrey - in his own words: I started my business in 1984, and have built this business on quality craftsmanship with a special sensitivity towards the finishing of every piece. I have repaired & reconstructed everything from historically important tankards, tea services, and tureens to disposal-damaged and dishwasher-dulled flatware.


I consider myself an environmentalist, using the safest, non-toxic, organic products available. My workshop is state-of-the-art in safety and cleanliness.


Before I started my own business, I worked at Gorham as a designer, sample maker, and technical illustrator. Upon leaving Gorham, I took a position at Pilz Ltd. where I learned the fine art of restoration, and fabricated mass-produced ecclesiastical ware. I earned a BFA degree in silversmithing and jewelry making from Maine College of Art in Portland, where I studied under Harold Schremmer and Ernest Thompson - two outstanding designer/craftsmen. I am the founder of theSociety of American Silversmiths.
