My name is Amber, welcome to my shop! I'm the sole maker behind Metal Lotus®. All of the jewelry you see is crafted from scratch in small batches.
My business is built entirely on self-taught skills. I use raw materials, like wire and sheet metal, to turn my designs in tiny pieces of wearable art. Currently, I work with sterling silver, karat gold, platinum, and niobium.
All of my designs begin as whimsical drawings in my sketchbook before being cut out from a piece of sheet metal. Occasionally, I also hand sculpt masters of my designs to use in molds. All of the design work, cutting, soldering, welding, and polishing is completed in my workshop - nothing is outsourced, and I don't buy premade body jewelry components to assemble.
My hands form every single hoop and make each tiny bezel setting. Every gemstone is hand set using a steel punch and a hammer. No glue is ever used.
