Guaranteed, every time I do a craft fair someone will point out that ‘love’ is written upside down on these jars. Yes, that’s right – it’s written back to front, too!
Or – someone will say that I’ve written them in Greek. That’s happened a few times!
As soon as I pop a love light under my little USB bendy lamp, however, the penny drops…
I see my ‘love lights’ as a way to spread a bit of love into the world. Depending on the type of light you use to illuminate them (tealights are good but a little spotlight is fabulous), you can expect to see varying amounts of ‘love’ spread onto whichever surface your love light is sitting on. Strong sunlight would also work.
Love lights are available in two colour schemes – hot and cool – and are made from brand new (not upcycled) glass jars.
Please bear in mind that all items are hand painted, freehand, so some variation in pattern is to be expected.
Let there be light!
Please note that lights are not supplied with the item.
I sell bendable LED battery operated fairy lights. These give off a gentle warm glow.
To achieve a brighter effect, you’ll need stronger lights. Amazon sell something similar to what I’ve used in photos on other pages of this website.
For the brightest light and colour effects, shine a small spotlight lamp through the painted part of the glass. To achieve this effect, you’ll need something similar to this USB bendy lamp from Amazon.
The jar can be gently washed by hand in warm, soapy water, but please note that it is NOT dishwasher safe. Wipe the paintwork gently – do not scrub.
