Hi, my name is Amber!
Metal Lotus® is a one woman shop, currently located in the Arizona desert. I do everything around here, from the product design and photo taking, to handling the customer service inquiries and packaging the orders. My business is built entirely on self-taught skills, and I learned how to use all of my tools through trial and error (a lot of error...)
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, sterling silver (nickel-free), niobium, titanium and 316L steel.
All the charms that I use in my work are exclusive to Metal Lotus®. Each one starts out as a whimsical drawing in my sketchbook before I cut it out from a piece of sheet metal. I do all the design work, cutting, soldering, welding and polishing in my own studio. I also form every single nose hoop, and hand set all the stones in my shop using traditional stone setting techniques. No glue is ever used.
I enjoy working on custom pieces - if you have a project you'd like to discuss, please get in touch!
