“My first experience with jewellery was when I was promised a pendant from my father, a sort of inheritance or keepsake if you will, it wasn’t until his passing that I truly understood what the sentiment, significance and symbolic nature of giving a piece of jewellery was”.
Tracey Jane Lötter is an innovator of luxury Jewellery, her understanding of this sentiment, significance, symbolic nature and the ability jewellery has to enhance both men and women’s natural beauty led her to the start and completion of a degree in Jewellery Design and Manufacture, at the Cape Peninsula Universaity of Technology.
Her driving interest to learn more led to a three year mentorship of making and designing fine jewellery at Aliverti jewellers, which became the spring board in creating Made of Mettle’s unquestionable reputation of integrity, a need to stand out and above all a need to challenge an ever changing craft.
Paying close attention to her clients needs, inspirations, desires and ideas is all part of Tracey’s process and the essence to creating bespoke and unique pieces of jewellery. Her intimate and strong work ethic makes managing her clients expectations possible, and her organic approach creates priceless results.
Tracey’s broad experience and expertise extends past designing bespoke jewellery. By combining modern technology and traditional techniques, Tracey’s passion, authenticity and curiosity help her create innovative gents bands, classically unique engagement rings, remodel heirlooms and create keepsakes that can be cherished for years to come.
