available jobs based on their criteria and save those jobs for later
review if they choose. Job seekers can also create a search agent to
provide e-mail notifications of jobs that match their criteria.
The Society of American Silversmiths is the world's #1 resource for
anything related to the silversmith's art and craft. SAS was founded
in April 1989 as the nation's only professional organization devoted
solely to the preservation and promotion of contemporary
silversmithing. In addition to an outstanding benefits package, all
members have access to the Society's technical and marketing
expertise through its free consulting service to members. Its Artisan
members, those silversmiths who have been juried into the Society
based on their outstanding technical skill, are provided with
support, networking, and greater access to the market. The SAS
Artisan member archive contains a maker's mark registry, over 1,400
slides and 400 photographs, and a resume for each Artisan member.
Through SAS, the public has access to a unique referral service that
commissions silver holloware, flatware, and sculpture from its
Artisans. The SAS Web site (http://www.silversmithing.com) provides
on silversmithing techniques, silver care, restoration,
and conservation, and the aesthetic value of this art form.
