Walker Studios (Lindsay and Jeanette Walker) have been in business since 2001 and are located on 89 Water Street. I love their mission statement: “to design and create meaningful work in a sustainable ‘earth loving’ way that will reflect the personality and soul of each individual client.”
Jeanette specializes in original custom eco-ethical jewellery designs. She works with sustainable, earth friendly materials, using slow ancient techniques to create her contemporary designs. She loves when customers bring in their old gold and gemstones and she “recycles” them into a newly designed creation. My friend Jaclyn and her sister Marsha had “sister rings” created by Jeanette, with both of their birthstones. Here is Jaclyn’s beautiful ring:
Lindsay is a fine artist, painting primarily in oils. His paintings illustrate rural landscapes of past and present and the magnificent simple quiet beauty of the Island's natural surroundings. I love his artwork, I hope to add a piece from his collection to my home soon.

I enjoyed meeting Jeanette and Lindsay and learning about their talents. I'm looking forward to visiting their gallery again soon. You can find out more about Walker Studios via their website, Facebook and Google+ .
