Welcome to my shop, the jewelry I make helps me to make the world a better place. After visting India for the first time in 2006, I decided to try to make a difference in the lives of the farmers that I met by helping their children. I decided that the biggest difference I can make as an individual is to improve the quality of instructional materials available to rural students. The art supplies that my sister and I enjoyed so freely as kids are the height of luxury to most of the kids I work with.

In 2010, I am supporting Greg Mortenson's efforts to build schools in remote and deeply impoverished areas of Afghanistan and Pakistan. For more information: www.ikat.org
I have been making jewelry since I was 18 years old. It is the one constant in my life and I enjoy the simple beauty of it. I work with natural stones and metals whenever possible. I love pearls the most.

Additional policies and FAQs
Wholesale info:

I currently wholesale in 1 store in Kentucky. I don't do consignment, but I like to sell wholesale to shops looking to carry my line. I will be looking to do more of this in 2011.

The wholesale discount is 25% off listed price. This may not seem like a standard wholesale discount- but my retail prices are very low to keep my store competitive in the world of Etsy. Already reduced items are not eligible for a wholesale discount. First time buyer minimum order is $200 or 20 items, established wholesale customer minimum order is $100 or 10 items. Lead time will depend on the pieces ordered, an exact quote will be given once a specific inquiry has been made. All US wholesale orders will include free USPS Priority shipping with delivery confirmation.

Please email me at april.virk [!at] gmail.com or contact me through my Etsy shop to inquire about wholesale orders or request additional information.

As of now, I only offer discounts on orders over $200. I do this for the love of making jewelry and to help people. I'm in it to give a better quality of education/life to people who could never dream spending $20 on a pair of earrings. I do give free shipping to brides buying for their bridal party though.
