Welcome to Lava Glow Jewelry

Kind Words and Testimonials

Lava Glow Jewelry is my new favorite thing!  I’m a bracelet girl and when attending one of Jan’s Open Houses in Corvallis, it is very hard not to leave with one of her new pieces.  I have a hard time deciding between one of her leather band cuffs with a beautiful gilded lava piece at the center or a delicate lava paired with beautiful beads and unique findings. Jan’s studio is a treat to visit if you’re ever in the area, and the plus is that you’ll meet Jan Maitland!  Her work goes beyond Lava with gilded bowls and beautiful paintings. I know I’ll be back soon.

I just love my exquisitely designed necklaces by Jan. Every piece is uniquely designed with beautiful details, a mark of true craftsmanship. I always receive complements whenever I wear these lovely necklaces. I can't wait to see her latest designs.

Jan is such a versatile, creative artist.  I love all that she does and own some of her portrait art.  Yet most of all I love wearing her gilded lava jewelry to dress up my most simple wardrobe.  I always get admiring comments while wearing my lava jewelry.  How creative and so elegant and earthy to combine semi-precious gems with gilded lava.  Jan has put together so many beautiful combinations it is hard to choose what piece I want next.

I love Jan’s sophisticated interpretation of the lava, gold, and cobalt. She melds the elegance of nature into a statement piece that always draws notice, and is fun to wear. People always want to know more about her nature-based jewelry.
