About

Interview by ThePennyRose.com

When and how and why did you start April May Jewelry?

I started making jewelry almost four years ago and continue to do so because I feel that I've finally found a creative medium in which I can fully express myself.

April May was created back in 2014. I chose to start selling my creations because I wanted to share my passion with the world! In addition, I'm personally very passionate about empowering those around me, especially women, and this is one of the ways in which I feel I can.

What kind of work were you doing before you got into jewelry?

Before jewelry, I was a Hairstylist for seven years and I still am a couple days a week.

And what kind of training, classes, etc., did you need to take to get into jewelry-making?

I haven't received any formal education. Everything I've learned is from what I've either read, seen on YouTube, or from good old-fashioned trial and error.

Where are you based?

I'm based out of Oakland, Ca.

How would you describe the aesthetic of April May Jewelry?

The aesthetic of what I create I describe as Minimal and Bold. My pieces have a simplicity factor, but at the same time make a statement and radiant strong femininity.

What kinds of products do you sell and what's the price range?

I sell handmade jewelry and hair accessories with prices currently ranging from $20-$70.

What do you love most about what you do?

Hands down, the women I meet.

My pieces are created not just from my knowledge of design but also from a place of love and positive energy. I feel that they become powerful in a sense because of that. My hope is to not only help women feel more beautiful when they wear a piece of my jewelry, but to also serve them a reminder to themselves of just how empowered they are. When I see this come to life in person, knowing that I've impacted someone's life with something I've created, even if it may be in a minimal way... It's magical and is an endless source of inspiration to me.

Where is your work sold ?

You can currently find April May in various brick and mortar shops around the Bay Area. A list of those shops can be found on my website, where you can also make
purchases at AprilMayJewelryco.com

What's in store for you and your line in 2016?

Big things! I'm incorporating new materials and metals in my new designs. The pieces included in the Instagram contest are just a preview! Be on the lookout for my spring collection that will launch early April!
