About Lakeside Silver
On the shores of the Great Lakes, you’ll find the remnants of years past. Whether it’s pre-historic Petoskey stones or Victorian aged Leland blue. Maybe you’ve walked the shoreline with your family or climbed the famous Sleeping Bear Dunes. It’s possible you’ve only seen pictures, or you feel a strong connection to water as an element of healing. Regardless, how do you capture those memories, the feelings, and honor the natural resources of the Great Lakes region? Heirloom jewelry. Lakeside Silver creates pieces that are meant to be cherished, and handed down. Hand crafted on the shores of Lake Michigan, Lisa takes her cues from the beauty around her. She focuses on simple designs that are perfect for everyday wear – wear them, love them, pass them down.
Lisa began metal smithing in 2017 after a summer in New Mexico left her with a lot of turquoise that needed to be set in jewelry - why not learn how? Fast forward five years and a lot has changed, but Lisa's excitement for making pieces that people can wear for many years hasn't faded.
Lisa's favorite memories usually involve water: sitting in a lawn chair just looking out over Half Moon Lake at her family cottage, day trips to Traverse City with a stop in Beulah for cherry pie, a sister trip to Pictured Rocks in the UP, or her college days on the shores of Lake Michigan. Everything about Michigan is "lakeside," and is filled with opportunities to create many more memories.
