I gave this to my daughter in law & she loves it. It is super cool, modern and well-made. Thank you! The price was so affordable, considering the time & creativity it took to make it.....

I need a bracelet to match my earrings, hmmmm, I think I will make one!

I started making jewelry when I needed a piece for my personal wardrobe. I made use of the tools I bought for my daughter as a gift, she never took to jewelry making. Since then I have taken many classes in metal work and jewelry design.

    Good Day! My name is April. Since my divorce I had to return to work full time as an RN. I am unable to pursue my passion of creating artisan jewelry. All remaining items are being sold at cost. Each item is brand new and in perfect condition.

Shop policies

Last updated on January 31, 2015
Welcome! Thanks for visiting my online shop. I work diligently to make sure all items are quality pieces and that they will be a treasure for you to own. I like to put myself in the buyers shoes and often ask myself, " Would I like to have that and is that a fair price that I am willing to pay." As an artisan pricing is a very difficult arena. Many items take hours to design and much more time to make. If a dollar amount were charged for all the time that goes into designing and making a piece of artisan jewelry they would all be out of my price range. With that in mind I honestly try to price my work so the artisan (me) and the customer does not end up with an unreasonably priced item. I guarantee all my work against defects in workmanship and materials. See additional information in return policy section.

Attention to detail is an important practice in my jewelry design. I meticulously smooth metal components such as ear wires or wire charms. A finished edge is crucial to insure item is comfortable to wear. Pieces such as necklaces and bracelets are finished with wire guards and crimp covers at clasp providing for a clean professional finish.

Materials used are 14K gold fill components and sterling silver. I have recently incorporated copper and Merlins gold into my designs due to the affordability of the metal.

THE PEARLS ..... Pearls used in my work are no less than "B" grade. Pearls are graded by their consistent color throughout, their shape, luster and visible surface defects. Top grade pearls are rated A+ and have high luster, rare if any visible surface defects or ridges, consistent size and shape throughout the strand and consistent color. C and D grade pearls would have very few of the qualities note here. Most freshwater pearls are dyed. Natural color in a strand of pearls would make them very costly as only one pearl is created in a shell.

ABOUT WIRE GUARDS and CRIMP COVERS.... Wire guards are the tiny horseshoe shape piece that conceals and protects the wire at the clasp. After wear if that wire is exposed it can wear, fray and break. It is also not an attractive finish for a quality crafted jewelry item. Crimp covers are the small bead like piece at the end of the strand. It conceals the metal tube ( the crimp ) that is used to close the end of the necklace or bracelet and forms the loop where the clasp is attached. Using these items in creating a piece of jewelry provides for a clean attractive finish and durability of wear.
