I recently had the pleasure to meet and photograph the lovely Lindsey Gallacher who runs her studio and shop in Swanson Street, Thurso. As the studio turns one it was even more special and watching Lindsey work, I just cannot imagine the years of work and training gone into her craft of Jewellery making as well as some amazing artwork and items handmade and sold in her shop.
When you enter the building you’re greeted with a bright room which is set out with items to purchase on display from earrings to gift cards and pictures to aprons and a range of incredible hand made pieces. Not only does Lindsey run the shop and take order requests for bespoke items but she trains others to make jewellery in her workshops run at the studio.
In half of the room Lindsey works on making the pieces which to watch an item go from a piece of silver into such a bespoke piece is really something to see and she is such a lovely friendly person that I can highly recommend a trip or book your own day to learn with her.
Below are some of the images we took on the day and I really wish Lindsey a great second year as a valued Caithness business and artist.
