Apprentice Lindsey T is Graduating!

Lindsey Thurber will be graduated from an apprentice to a jeweler on June 9th, 2017!

"My favorite thing to create is an engagement ring. I love being a part of such a special event, and helping plan out and bring to reality this ring that has been dreamt about for so long. It is such a special feeling knowing how much this ring means to the couple, and that it will be worn and cherished forever!" -Lindsey
     In January 2013, I started working at Walker Metalsmiths as a part time apprentice. Once I graduated from Alfred University with a Bachelor in Fine Arts in 2014, I became a full time jewelry apprentice.
     Although I started out primarily as a jewelry apprentice, I quickly branched out into helping with other aspects of the company. I have helped re-make the current website, do all of the product photography, manage the social media accounts, and work on advertising- alongside with still making jewelry! 
     Over the five years that I have worked at Walker Metalsmiths, I have trained under master jeweler Stephen Walker and jeweler Lyndsay Burr. From them I have learned the complete process of lost wax casting, Gold & Sterling Silver finishing, stone setting techniques, soldering, laser welding, arc welding, hand fabrication, and so much more. 

Congratulations Lindsey!
