Original Andover, NY workshop and showroom and mail orders open:
Walker Metalsmiths is a craftsman run workshop specializing in authentic Celtic
rings and Celtic design jewelry in silver, gold, platinum, mokume and mixed metal designs. Our workshop and
gallery is located in the Village of Andover in rural Allegany County of Western New York
State, with a second shop recently opened in Fairport, NY. We sell our own work as well as the creations of many of the best Celtic designers and
jewelers from Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
Many designs shown on the web do not appear in our print catalog, however the print catalog does show all of our Celtic knotwork ring designs.
Originality of Design
The work illustrated on these pages represent the creative effort of Stephen Walker and various other craftsmen and designers. With the exceptions of several of the simplest knots, none of these designs should be considered public domain. It is commonly and wrongly supposed that all Celtic designs are ancient and therefore free from copyright restrictions. The truth is that new, traditionally correct designs often look as if they could be very old, but they are none-the-less intellectual property of the artist.
of copyright designs by anyone other than the artist requires permission in the
case of personal use or a licensing agreement in the case of commercial use.
