WHO WE ARE
The Florida Society of Goldsmiths is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization which was formed by metalsmiths in 1984 to aid and support other metalsmiths through meetings, publicity, workshops, and exhibitions. FSG is divided into six regionally based chapters: West Panhandle, Northwest, Northeast, West Coast, Southwest, and Southeast. Each region sponsors workshops and educational programs on the local, state and/or national level. The six chapters are coordinated by the state organization composed of an Executive Director, Board of Directors, and Representatives from the individual chapters. FSG members are primarily active metalsmiths and jewelry crafts people. There are no limits to the kinds of metals or techniques employed. Members’ work runs the gamut from platinum, gold, silver, and precious metal clay to found object pieces. Click here for a brief history.
