The Michigan Silversmiths Guild was founded in 1948. Guild members include craftpersons proficient in the fields of metalsmithing and jewelry, and serves to broaden the knowledge of its members' craft and to facilitate communication with other metalsmiths.

The Guild sponsors lectures and workshops by artists and teachers established in their fields. These activities have included lectures and workshops covering box construction, iron working, shell construction, plastics, repousse, titanium, stone setting, casting, etc. The Guild also sponsors juried exhibitions of work produced by members. Workshops are usually held on Saturdays at the Center for Creative Studies, Detroit; Cranbrook Academy of Art, Bloomfield Hills; Eastern Michigan University, Ypsilanti; Wayne State University, Detroit, or the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Lectures and/or slide presentations are held at any one of the above locations.
