Our Craftsmen

Our artisans began work apprenticed to the silversmith Ben Preisner in the 1970’s. After the apprenticeship their paths diverged as they pursued careers with different companies. Years later, with extensive experience behind them, they have reunited to carry on the legacy and quality of the Preisner name at Sterling & Pewter Fine Goods. Over the years, we have created works for many companies known for their quality including Tiffany’s & Co, Ralph Lauren, Cartier, and Preisner Silver, among others. In the workshop, blank circles of metal are taken and formed over molds on the spinning machine (pictured on our home page). When designing custom pieces, we also build the tools needed to shape and cut the metal exactly as required. After creating the individual pieces, we solder them together so the metal fits seamlessly, and then buff it to either a bright or satin finish.
