I'm wondering how to find a silversmith for occasional repairs on my silver collection. Ideally there would be one in Virginia. I had the great fortune for a few years to know a superb craftsman nearby who passed away recently. Since he died I have shipped a few things for repair but shipping is expensive and feels risky. Thanks!

If you have any local antique dealers that deal in silver items you might ask them who they use for silver repair. That may get you to a local person.

Thanks, ahwt. I don't know any local silver dealers. Oddly I found my former silversmith through recommendation by one of the major matching services when I received a damaged item. The dealer in St Louis had recommended another silversmith in Alexandria VA who also died recently. I've asked local jewelers and collectors. We're still looking.
