Berkshire Gold & Silversmith

Thomas Parker
Berkshire Gold & Silversmith
152 Main Street, Great Barrington, MA
(413) 528-0013

 

Growing up with a silversmith for a father, there was always something for Thomas Parker and his brother to tinker with and they were encouraged to develop their skills from a young age. Armed with a torch, some solder and flux, and scraps of raw metal, Tom says the only disclaimer from his Dad was: “don’t burn the house down!” In 1995 he became an official apprentice at his father Richard Parker's Little Silver Shop in Avon, CT and in 2007 Tom opened his own shop, the Berkshire Gold & Silversmith in downtown Great Barrington.
