Lightning and Lace LLC was born from the desire to bring new technology and traditional handcrafting together to create high quality pieces of art.

A current focus is laser cutting, where the variety of materials lets us create very complex designs in a very controlled way.  We cut, etch, stack, and bond acrylic together to create jewelry, accessories, or small props. With such fun, versatile materials, we are able to create an incredible amount of designs, and also meet the needs of cosplayers in a cost effective and timely way.

Putting her Industrial Design degree from Auburn University to good use, owner Emmie Mayne heads the Lightning and Lace studio in suite 1038 at Lowe MilARTS & Entertainment, the largest privately owned arts facility in the United States.

Feel free visit us during Lowe Mill public hours. 
Guided, hands-on prototyping for custom projects begins at $40/hr.
