About Studio Metallurgy
Flipping conventions one metal at a time
A fresh take on contemporary jewelry, Advaeita creates one-of-a-kind pieces personally handcrafted and meticulously worked on by the craftsmen.
Her novel approach to design is inspired by nature, her travels as a young girl and experiences as a mother.
Studio Metallurgy has always striven to be a multidisciplinary brand. It initially began with jewelry made of industrial spare parts like electric fuse earrings, watch mechanism necklaces & copper dust in test tubes and expanded into a line of brass instrument lamps and molten metal poured in wood which was converted into usable functional furniture.
Later, a collection of glassware (using traditional blown techniques) that resembled glacial peaks created by blowing molten glass over discarded tree roots and branches was also launched.
"I love experimenting and innovating! To observe and take inspiration from everyday objects and adapt traditional techniques and crafts to create something new and contemporary."
Advaeita first sculpts each piece in wax herself, creating multiple iterations of the design until it begins to express her vision.
Hawk-like attention goes into the making of each product.
The focal point is understanding the inherent characteristics of different materials and amalgamating them in a way that the inherent textures are enhanced further and lend themselves to beautiful and functional art pieces.
The thrust on impeccable finishing ensures that each piece is one of it's kind making it a
'collectible object d'art'.
Advaeita’s passion evolved into the brand we see today. With innovation and design as its core principle, she realized her true passion for jewelry and other accessories.
