The Boardman Silversmiths craftsmanship

Posted by Schiffman's at 7:00:00 AM in Boardman Silversmiths (31)

The gleaming and smooth finish of a Boardman Silversmiths piece reflects the precision manufacturing process and professional skills that go into each of the silverware. Considered a work of art, each piece starts at blanking presses that make precision cuts of geometric shapes from .925 sterling silver sheets and lead-free pewter. Boardman Silversmiths' pewter is one of the heaviest lead-free material used in the industry. In the hands of a craftsman, the cuts are shaped into exact shapes and curves by leveraging up to 900 pounds per square inch. Specially designed "sectional chucks" allow the craftsman to create a range of shapes. The curved pieces are then soldered on hollow fittings and are hand polished with pumice for a satin or bright finish. Boardman Silversmiths dedication to this strict process makes the signature of the most admired brands in silverware today.

Tips for dining interior

Posted by Schiffman's at 8:50:00 AM in Boardman Silversmiths (31)

The dining area is just as important as the living room, especially if you have guests coming for dinner. The key to an impressive dining interior is to see the room as not just for eating, but for an overall pleasurable experience of good conversation and a hearty meal. Here are some pointers. Create a theme. Do you want the cold, glossy feel of tiles or the warm earth feel of wood? The walls will set the tone of your theme, while the tiles should complement the theme. Don’t mix themes; this will dilute the overall effect. Then think of accents. These can be your dining table, the cabinet or dining rugs. Likewise, choose a fine silverware like Boardman Silversmiths to add elegance. Silver works well with wood, ceramics or just about any theme.

The cocktail shaker. The singular item in your bar that creates all things possible. Turn it loose, mix the alcohol, shake, then pour.

Deal closed

Posted by Schiffman's at 1:00:00 AM in Boardman Silversmiths (31)

I am a hedge fund manager, and I have this little silly trick that has helped me convince some of my wealthy neighbors to invest in me. I will invite them to my house over a tea or coffee. My house is quite pricey and I let them see my wealth: the pool, the furniture, the car. But this is nothing new to them. After all, they’re all rich, even richer than I at times. In hedge investment, I will tell them as they enjoy a cup of tea in my garden, the devil is in the details. It’s not only a matter of targeting the best promising companies; more effectively, it is better to target the supply chain of these companies. Similarly, I’ll tell them, investing doesn’t stop at buying a big house. Even the small things count. Then I’ll point to the cup their holding and tea pot on my set: a Boardman Silversmiths. You can even invest in these “little” things as cups and saucers, pointing out that Boardman Silversmiths can be a collectible, an heirloom, that creates value over time. That’s the real skill of a hedge fund manager, I’ll tell them, the ability to see value in the tiniest details.  Deal closed.
