Thomas Parker has been working as a silversmith since 1995. He learned the trade from his father, who is still working at “The Little Silver Shop” in Avon Connecticut.
Tom worked with his father there for thirteen years, and decided it was time to venture out on his own. He chose Great Barrington Massachusetts as his destination, because he had been coming up here for years playing with The Berkshire Bateria and Bossa Triba and fell in love with the area.
The Berkshire Gold & Silversmith officially opened its doors in May 2007. It has since been a hub of creativity for artists, musicians and craftsman alike. We support many local artisans, and display their works in the store as well. There is a little something for everyone here, and every visit is unique. So enjoy the site, stop on in and tell your friends! You will be glad you did!
