About Lakeside Silver
Lakeside Silver was officially (legally) formed in 2018, but became a fledgling business in the summer of 2017. Lisa Borton was looking for a creative outlet outside of her day job (more on that here) and took a Beginning Metalsmithing class. She quickly fell in love and gathered the tools to start her own studio in her home. The past 18 months have been filled with wonderful discovery and growth, and Lisa is excited to see what's next!
Lisa had the extreme luck to be born in one of the best states - Michigan. Here, we have lakes galore, and it's hard not to grow up exploring them and letting them influence most of your extra curricular activities. Michigan's state stone, the Petoskey, is also known to wash up on the shores of Lake Michigan. It would be difficult to not be influenced by such a beautiful landscape, and the constant presence of water really does permeate most things Lisa creates.
Wearing her own swag. Because she can.
