Hello. My name is Ava and I am the designer at Lots of Love and Glitter. Art has been a passion of mine my entire life. Throughout the years, I've experimented with a wide variety of mediums and styles. For many years, realistic portraits and landscapes were my style of choice.
In 2018 I decided to create geode inspired artwork using acrylic paint, glitter, and resin. At that time, I also had the vision of creating geode inspired jewelry but didn't pursue that idea until very recently in 2022. I am so glad that I finally did because I am having so much fun creating these earring styles! I love that the possibilities are endless!
My earrings are hand crafted out of very lightweight basswood. After I sketch out the unique shape onto the wood, my husband Paul uses our scroll saw to hand cut each piece out. Then I paint them with acrylic paints, embellish with a variety of glitter and gold leaf, cover the entire back with gold leaf, and finish with dipping them in resin. The earring hooks are either 18K gold plated or sterling silver.
If you have a specific color combination or shape that you would like made, please send me a message. I'm happy to discuss custom orders! Also, if there is a pair that has sold before you could snatch it up, reach out and I could make another pair as similar as possible.
