Tell us about your role here at Lotus:
My role as one of our production managers is to receive incoming orders and delegate them to our production team so we can get them to our customers ASAP! Once an order is completed, I do a quality check and send it off to our ladies in the shipping department. I also spend time on my bench as well, helping to complete orders and have dabbled in designing some newer products in the collection!
What inspires you as a designer?
I really just make jewelry that I would want to wear! I do the majority of our custom stamped products which has really inspired me lately to be a little bit more innovative in how different stamps can be used to create patterns they weren’t initially designed for. I also have been inspired by different shapes that result from scrap metal pieces lying around and have even woken up in the middle of the night from a dream that gave me an idea!
What are some fun facts about yourself that you would love for people to know about you?
Above all, I am an animal lover and have been since I was a baby- raising and showing livestock , horses, dogs & many more! My newest addition is my Samoyed puppy, Huckleberry, who sometimes frequents the studio! I graduated in 2018 from York College of Pennsylvania with a Bachelor of Science degree in Entrepreneurship. I am a lover of all things DIY- from painting to making wedding cakes, floral arranging, sewing, gardening, refurbishing furniture- I’ve pretty much tried it all. Creativity is my passion and I think that’s why I love making and designing jewelry so much.
