Glitter Signs: A Form of Art

love glitter sign

Why glitter signs? When it comes to making a statement or adding a touch of personality to a space, people often turn to art. However, traditional paintings or sculptures aren’t the only options available. One unique form of art that has been gaining popularity recently is glitter signs. These colourful and eye-catching creations have become a popular way to add a bit of sparkle and fun to any room.

Designed in Ibiza by Victoria for La Galeria Elefante and handmade in India by a small artisan family business we work with, each sign is handmade with love and so styles & sizes vary. Each one has 2 hooks on the back for hanging on the wall. Read more about Victoria’s original glitter signs, now lovingly filling the walls at La Galeria Elefante.

The Beauty of Glitter Signs

Glitter signs are a unique form of art that utilises a combination of colours, textures and materials to create a dazzling display. These signs can be customised to match any style or theme, making them a versatile choice for any space. The use of glitter adds an element of fun and whimsy, while still maintaining a chic and sophisticated aesthetic.

Another benefit of glitter signs is that they are incredibly durable. Unlike traditional paintings or prints, these signs are created with a sturdy wooden backing that can withstand wear and tear. Additionally, the glitter itself is coated in a clear adhesive, ensuring that it stays in place and doesn’t flake off over time.

The Process of Creating a Glitter Sign

The process of creating a glitter sign is both intricate and time-consuming. First, a design is chosen and sketched onto a piece of wood or another sturdy backing. Then, the design is traced with a clear adhesive and covered with glitter and mosaics. This process is repeated until the entire design is filled in with glitter and mosaics, creating a sparkling and colourful display.

One of the great things about glitter signs is that they suit a number of spaces or occasions. Whether you’re looking for a sign to hang in your home, a wedding or party decoration, or a unique piece of art for your business, glitter signs are a great choice.

Our glitter signs share uplifting messages like LOVE, ELEVATE, PEACE, MAGIC, BE KIND and YES or the mischievous FUCK IT! for when you’re in a playful mood. If the messages are not your cup of tea, why not go for the beautiful angel wings, the Hand of Hamsa or even the Tree of Life.

With their durability, versatility, and customisation options, they are a great choice for anyone looking to add a bit of fun and whimsy to their decor. So why not try incorporating a glitter sign into your home or business and see for yourself the beauty and charm they can bring?

For as long as I can remember I have been a huge fan of crafts and handmade pieces always put a smile on my face. I love the home-made, handspun feel, especially when you can see the story the piece is telling. The best therapy for me is spending as much time as possible in my studio in the hills of Ibiza. I can literally spend hours in my own world, doodling, designing, planning and producing. Some of the items at La Galeria Elefante are my own creations and I absolutely adore making them! Often influenced by the colours of the different seasons, the sounds of nature, and the beautiful Ibiza light, my whimsical designs include pieces like the Nest Lamps, the Branch of Life, the lovely little Alice Baskets perfect for a candle and the Happy Baskets (an Ibiza-style handbag). All pieces are made with love and lots of laughter.

Crafternoons bring me inner peace. As well as crafting or painting on my own, I thoroughly enjoy taking part in workshops which in turn inspire me to create for the shop. A favourite of mine is participating in the Sparkling Surfaces course taught by the fabulous and inspirational Andrew Logan (andrewlogan.com). The “wonderful workshops” event takes place yearly in Jaipur where we design and make sparkling jewellery as well as the glass and mirror mosaic art for the walls. If you are interested in crafting, definitely check out www.wonderfulworkshops.org and sign yourself up for some fun.

These original pieces I’ve made over the years are on display at La Galeria Elefante and I have since found artisans in India to replicate some of my pieces for us. Our Glitter Signs are available in two sizes and express various sentiments. Choose between “Peace,” “Love,” “Magic” or the slightly risqué “Fuck-it,” each carved from wood and bedazzled with mirror, colourful beads and glitter.

We also have the Angel Wing which is another pretty piece in this collection, now available in the shop. Although my original piece is a single wing, the ones we are producing come as a pair and look lovely hanging together on the wall of a kids’ room. Made using little pearls, mirror-work and glitter, these wings are available in small and large in various colours and will add a lovely sparkle to any wall while reflecting the light. Also available as a replica of my original piece is the sparkly Protective Eye, to watch over you and keep you from harm. Made with mirror-work, colourful beads, tiny pearl beads and glitter, the eyeballs on these eyes are made from a concave piece of mirror, adding an extra dimension.

All our signs and wings are made for us by a small family run business we love working with in Delhi. These sparkly decorative signs have become signature pieces and so are always available.
