Nothing represents the sanctity and purity of faith more than gold and silver. These two precious metals have served as important aspects of religious worship and ceremony
since the very start of organized religion.  Zapffe Silversmiths has gold plated and silver plated thousands of chalices, patens, communion plates, ciborium, baptismal fonts, tabernacles, Judaica, menorahs, and spice towers. We understand the significance of gold and silver church ware to a congregation, and the need for the highest quality craftsmanship available. Our services include, but are not limited to, relining or re-plating chalices in 24 karat gold, removing dents from sterling silver items, soldering arms
and leveling menorahs. Zapffe Silversmiths is capable of restoring religious items quickly, knowing that many of them are needed on a weekly basis.

Dear Mr Thompson:
Sometime ago you were kind enough to gild a small pectoral cross that has particular significance for me.  The final product is a beautiful piece of work and your craftsmanship merits a sincere word of appreciation.  Many thanks for a job well done!
Faithfully in Christ,
Donald Wuerl, Auxiliary Bishop of Seattle

Dear Mr. & Mrs. Thompson and Family,
I want to thank you for the gold replating the Ciborium for St. Martin De Pomes Church.  You have made over 1,000 people very happy and given much glory to the Lord. 
You will always be remembered at our Masses and Communions.  These people have nothing like this and it is beyond their wildest dreams.
Thank you so much,
Reverend W. Cleary,

To Mr. Thompson,
The cross is in such splendid form and beauty I cannot thank you enough. God will reward you for such lovely work you did on his cross. This is to tell you thank you. 
Your hands are blessed forever and ever.
