About
Welcome to my jewellery and art studio in Thurso. My workbench is situated here and you can see me work on my creations Tuesday to Saturday. I graduated from Edinburgh College of Art with 1st class honours in jewellery and silversmithing. I offer beginner jewellery making workshops where you will learn real silversmithing techniques and at the end of the class take home your own piece of sterling silver jewellery that you have designed and made yourself. A perfect thing to do on a rainy day! Happy to take families (aged over 12, can be younger if an adult is present and they feel the child is capable) friends, couples or individuals looking to do something unique. My new premises in Brabster street is a wonderful place to visit, you will also be able to buy from a specially curated collection of local and scottish craft and ever changing artwork. My scratchboard artwork can be bought in a number of different products including prints, bags and mugs

First class

Another very enjoyable workshop with the skilled and ever-patient Lindsey. She helped me to make a pennant to celebrate the birth of my second grandson. It turned out just how I hoped it would.

Definitely worth a visit!
Oct 2020
I visited Lindsey's studio yesterday. It is absolutely beautiful- like a calm sanctuary- spacious and full of products by all sorts of local craftspeople. Her jewellery is beautiful, but I was also taken by her sketches and wirework. Stunning.
I browsed for ages and felt under no pressure to rush- or indeed to even buy anything. This studio is really worth a visit if you want to treat yourself or just appreciate high- quality local crafts. This has been a highlight of my trip, so far. Thanks Lindsey.

Excellent silver jewellery making workshop
Jun 2019 • Solo
Lindsey is a talented artist. She is also an excellent teacher. Keen to allow students to be creative and also very patient. I had an excellent day with her making a totally unique silver pendant that will be a lovely keepsake/memory from my visit to the north of Scotland.

Wonderful jewellery workshop
Nov 2019 • Solo
My husband had bought me a voucher for this workshop as a birthday gift and I wasn't quite sure what to expect having never been to one before, or even ever considered someone like me would be able to make jewellery! I couldn't have been more wrong!

Lindsey talked us through some items made by previous participants, and what we might be able to achieve in the time we were allocated for the day, and asked us if we had any ideas/designs in mind and then we went from there.

Did I feel apprehensive and have a shaky hand when sawing my first piece of silver, or soldering for the first time? You bet I did! but Lindsey guided us every step of the way through the various processes to achieve what we hoped we had in our minds. By lunchtime I was delighted to have made my first ever ring!

During the making of my second ring design I felt at ease with the process and tried out new techniques.
At the end of the session I had made two rings, and exceeded all my expectations. All that was left was to pay a very reasonable price for the silver by its weight.

I have new found admiration for small businesses making their jewellery in this way as there is so much more to the process and skills than you can imagine.

This is a fantastic experience and I can now see why on so many reviews people wish to return...in fact I will be one of them....

Thank you so much Lindsey!

Thank you so much :) I love it that you didn't need any help with the second ring at all, shows you what's possible if you put your mind to it!

Unforgettable day with a wonderful talent
Oct 2019
A group of four of us attended a jewellery workshop and were blown away with what we were able to make. Lindsey is incredibly patient and wants you to make a piece that you will be completely happy with. Being surrounded by Lindsey's beautiful artwork in the studio it's easy to be inspired. Having looked at some of the pieces made previously in the workshops we were a bit nervous that we would find it difficult but Lindsey was so great at breaking down the process for us resulting in us all leaving with beautiful, personal pieces to last a lifetime. I would thoroughly recommend and can't wait to attend another workshop in the future.

Holiday craft day
Aug 2019 • Solo
Every year on holiday I like to have a craft day and to come away with something special to remember my holiday with. This year I booked a jewellery workshop with Lindsey and wow, what a great day. Right from the start I felt welcome and relaxed and as I had a few ideas of the kind of piece I would like to make, Lindsey helped me decide what would be possible in the time we had. She had lots of examples of different effects that could be incorporated into my piece and photos of other things people had made. I decided on a textured bangle with a charm. Every step was expertly demonstrated in easy steps and bit by bit it took shape. I came away with a unique piece which will always remind me of my trip. Would definitely recommend and will be back when I am next in the area. Next years craft day will have to be amazing to beat this.

Amazing Day
Aug 2019
Lindsey is not only exceptionally skilled, but also a real people person. She completely put us at ease and helped us to come up with our designs. Thanks to Lindsey that was the most difficult part of the day, as she made the making of our rings so easy. We were there from 10am to 3.30pm and the day flew in. I can't recommend this workshop enough. We all have amazing pieces and a shared memory to cherish. Thanks Lindsey!!

Brilliant Birthday Present
Aug 2019
When my husband bought me a voucher as a birthday present I was delighted but slightly apprehensive as I know nothing about making jewellery. I needn't have worried as Lindsey is very patient, professional and explains everything beautifully. At the end of the day I came away with a gorgeous ring that I know I'll wear constantly.

I highly recommend Lindsey's workshops but if you don't have the time, a visit to her gallery will let you go home with something beautiful from her collection.

Birthday present
Oct 2018 • Family
My husband got me a voucher as a birthday present so myself and my daughter went along. I was slightly nervous as didn't know what to expect. It was hands down one of the best things I have ever done. Lindsey is lovely. Made us feel really relaxed. I made a ring with my children's names in the inside and my daughter made a charm bracelet. I would highly recommend it. Would love do to it again. She is a very talented lady. Worth a visit.
