April Baynes' Profile

About

Hello to you all! Thanks for checking out the site. My name is April, I live in Bend, Oregon and I'm in love with adornment, the collective psyche that inspires modern day tribalism and all of the beautiful souls who choose to keep it alive. Thanks to you all!!!!
I've been making jewelry for around 10 years, but have been specializing in jewelry for nose piercings in the last 5. My style came about from my own desire to have a beautiful set of hoops for my own left nostril and septum piercings. Unable to find anything local or even regional to capture my taste, i relied on my own knowledge of metalsmithing to create an ever evolving line of nose jewelry that reflects aspects of my personality in adornment...tribal, elegent, feminine, yet bold. Each piece is handcrafted by myself with the help of one employee/friend, in my studio at home. Because they are handmade and unique, each piece can be counted on…

Unable to find anything local or even regional to capture my taste, i relied on my own knowledge of metalsmithing to create an ever evolving line of nose jewelry that reflects aspects of my personality in adornment...tribal, elegent, feminine, yet bold. Each piece is handcrafted by myself with the help of one employee/friend, in my studio at home. Because they are handmade and unique, each piece can be counted on for consistency, but not uniformity. They can all be reproduced, but are also one of a kind!
My friends and myself along with countless others have been wearing my nose rings for the last 10 years and I believe they have weathered the true test of time to be considered safe, durable, functional and artistically unique. I also guarantee every piece for a lifetime of use if taken care of properly. I will replace or repair any piece purchased from me free of charge unless it is lost or stolen of course!
A lot has changed for me in the last year. Due to the overwhelming response on the Etsy site I have decided to take on this venture full time! It's a very exciting change to work from home, as I have a beautiful famiiy that truly appreciates my presence here. With that being said, please remember that I am a mom first and a jeweler second. I like to remind people of this so they know what to expect when ordering from me. Each item is custom made for each individual based on their specifications. As we all know, each nose is different, along with the piercing given to it! Please expect 1 to 2 weeks for me to make and ship your item and another week for it to arrive. That is for domestic orders only. International orders may take much longer to arrive as the international post is unpredictable. If I do have an item in stock, I will let you know and it may arrive sooner. A 3 week wait can sometimes happen from order to arrival. Please know that I am trying to tighten that time frame always, and most often it is more like 2 weeks.
Thanks so very much to you all for taking the time to look into my profile and learning a bit about where your piece comes from and the love that goes into each item. It is truly a passion I feel when I create these. I hope you feel it when you wear them as well! A
