Silver is found, in its purest form, within other minerals and metals, but it is thought to have formed by a process of nuclear fusion during supernova explosions when planet Earth was being formed. It is very malleable but a little harder than gold and is the best conductor of electrical and thermal current of all metals. It is also used in radio transmission.
We have some of the finest silversmiths in the world, with a long tradition of manufacturing flatware (cutlery sets) silver utensils and fine silverware for the dining table. For more information about contemporary silverware, silversmiths and were they are exhibiting, go to www.contemporarybritishsilversmiths.org.
