The Michigan Silversmiths Guild was established in 1948 to provide support to silversmiths and those artisans who work in other metals through workshops, exhibitions, and other activities. Articles of incorporation and constitutions, history, minutes of executive board, membership lists, announcements and other mailings to members, and photographs.

The Michigan Silversmiths Guild was organized in 1948. The purpose of the organization was "to gather together those people who attained such proficiency in the broad field of silversmithing, jewelry and metal craft that they would be interested in obtaining more advance information and instruction through lectures and demonstrations of invited artists and craftsman in this field." The original constitution written in 1949 specified that the artisan work in silver, but this was later amended to include other metals. The Silversmiths Guild continues to hold exhibitions and workshops in the metropolitan Detroit area.
