"Made With Love" Event: Ava's Closet Review and Giveaway Ends 4/3

~This post is part of the handmade "Made With Love" event. All giveaways run from March 25th-April 3rd. View all 17 sponsors for this event HERE~
 

About the Designer...
Hi! My name is Andrea Worley creator/designer of Ava's Closet and professional photographer. That is my professional idenity, more personally I am a wife to my amazing Husband. First time Mommy to Ava. Avid blogger with a passion for people and all things creative. I live in sunny Glendale, Arizona with my Husband, daughter and our dog Bentley.

I make hand crafted accessories for women, girls and babies. Specializing in hair accessories and baby accessories. I've always been a creative person, crafting and making handmade things. When I was pregnant with my daughter in 2009 I was so inspired by her and started making things for her to wear once she was born. I got a little carried away making things and started giving them away to friends and family and decided to open an Etsy shop to share my stuff with others. It combines my passion for people as well as my photography love. 

I'm inspired daily by my daughter she makes life so much fun! And my Husband's encouragement to chase my dreams and go for my goals keeps me going. I love hearing people's stories and getting to know them. I'm often inspired to bless others with gifts and photography. I don't want to just keep it all to myself, I want to share it and give it away as much as I can. I've had an Etsy shop since Dec. 2009 but I've been taking pictures all my life and officially opened my business in 2007. 

Review...
Another fun Etsy shop with adorable handmade accessories! Ava's Closet is full of darling items for babies, girls, and women including hair clips, headbands, earrings, necklaces and tutus. Something for every occasion!


I received the Yellow Rosette Earrings to review! Hubby really liked these on me. They are totally out of my comfort zone and that is great! I've been trying to try more feminine jewelry and these are certainly something I would like to start wearing. 

They have such an modern elegance about them and I love the raw edges from the bias tape Andrea uses. It gives them a neat rugged look. They are so exquisite! These have 10mm brass stud with matching backs attached to the Rosette.

I couldn't get a super clear photo of one actually on my ear, but this gives you a better idea of the size. They're about 3/4" wide and lay flat against your ear. I absolutely LOVE the yellow color! If just seems to pop and give such a bright accent to your attire. They're a perfect piece for every woman's Spring wardrobe!


You can also find the Rosette Earrings in Hot Pink and Brown too. I'd love to see even more colors in these for the Spring and Summer. I'm thinking some softer pinks, greens and purples! Also, I have to say that at only $3.99 a pair, these are a STEAL!

Overall, I found Ava's Closet to be a fun find. There are so many fun clips for girls and I love the Tan Rosette Clip for me too! :)
