My name is Amber, welcome to my shop! I'm the sole maker behind Metal Lotus®. My jewelry is crafted one at a time in small batches in the size that you pick out.
My business is built entirely on self-taught skills. I use raw materials, like wire and metal sheet, to turn my designs in tiny pieces of wearable art. Currently, I work with karat gold, platinum, Argentium silver (nickel-free), and niobium.
All of my designs begin as a whimsical drawing in my sketchbook before being cut out from a piece of sheet metal. Occasionally, I also hand sculpt my designs. All of the design work, cutting, soldering, welding and polishing is done in my own studio.
I also form every single hoop and make each tiny bezel setting from scratch. My stones are all hand set using a steel punch and a hammer. No glue is ever used.
