Silver is at the cutting edge of contemporary design and is thriving.
Silversmiths are developing new techniques and the look of silver is as exciting now as it must have been at any of the highpoints of the past.
With the closure of many manufacturing firms in recent years, attention is focussing on individual craftsmen and women and limited production ranges in small workshops. A potential purchaser has a huge choice of objects with a variety of forms, functions and finishes, to choose from.
You can commission a piece or buy silver from shops or at fairs.
