Walker Jewelry at the Tennessee Craft Fair

by lindsay walker


I had a great time at my first Fall Tennessee Craft Fair and was honored to receive best emerging maker . Read about my experience in this beautifully written article. If anyone is looking to belong to a group, I would highly recommend joining Tennessee Craft. They provide many different ways of support for up and coming and established artists. The monthly meetings with guest lecturers, are a great opportunity to network and learn from other artisans.

Abstract painting and jewelry for The Wardrobe Project

by lindsay walker


The Nashville Fashion Alliance held its first local designer market, called the Wardrobe Project at Track One last Saturday. The inspiration for the market came from Caroline Margaret's instagram feed @nashvillewardrobeproject, which showcases Nashville's designers. The market hosted Nashville fashion and accessory designers from a variety of backgrounds and styles. The vibe was similar to Dover Street Market in New York as many designers collaborated with local artists to create magical environments for their work. 

 I contacted my friend, Erin Murphy, who paints amazing abstract art and landscapes shortly after receiving word that Walker Jewelry would be apart of the market. I have been wanting to collaborate with her on a project for some time and this opportunity provided the perfect chance to do so. 

The results were great to experience, and I felt like my jewelry had found its home in Erin's art installation. Check out the pictures of Erin's landscape installation here, which was inspired by Tennessee limestone rock and landscapes.
