We had the good fortune of connecting with Ava Michele Robinson and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Ava Michele, what are you inspired by?
I’m inspired by so many things! Color is my number one inspiration. I’m inspired by art, nature, clothing, other artists, etc.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Ava Michele’s jewelry is exquisite in design and handmade with precision and care. Her beads, charms, and stones are carefully selected from vendors worldwide. Each Ava Michele piece is crafted with high-quality clasps and wirings to ensure timelessness and unique style. Ava Michele’s attention to detail is ExtrAVAgant and allows her to make bold pieces.  I am where I am today because of my God given creativity, my work ethic and the hundreds of men and women who love to wear my Jewelry. I’ve learned to not expect help , but treasure those who genuinely offer it! I want the world to know this is just the beginning! You ain’t seen nothing yet!

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
When my girls visit they already know its, Eat Shop Sleep! I’d take them to some of my favorite boutiques, we’d visit several TJMAXX shops, North Park Mall, and more! We’d visit several different new restaurants because we like to try new things. We might catch a play @ Jubilee Theater and /or a movie!

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I’d like to send several shout outs! My first one goes out to @blissfullyshawn! Shawn gifted me with thousands of AMAZING beads and supplies and she did not know me! In the beginning there were two people that offered useful advice and answered many questions any time I needed it, they are Crystal Perry and James Haynes. Faith Anderson helped me with EVERYTHING! Photos, advertising, commercials and more! So many people have supported me, I cant name them all! Shout out to all the men and women that have supported me! Purchased from me! Encouraged me! Shared my posts! My #gramfam! My Girls! My Pastor! Last but not least my Mom and my Grandmother, I am me because of them. I’m blessed!
