About Me

My photo
I am a bit of a hippy at heart, although I am a bit to young to have been a flower child (I was a New Romantic as a teenager). I love the individuality and colourfulness of the arty, hippy style and like to express that love of colour in my jewellery and I seem to be increasingly drawn to nature as inspiration for my beadwork.

April Is Forever - What's in a name?


Crystal Tulip Ring




Cornflower Flower Flare Ring



I have been doing a lot of research over the past week about seller profiles etc and I thought I would share a little about my inspirations and why I chose April Is Forever for my business name.



I am a bit of a hippy at heart, although I am a bit to young to have been a flower child (I was a New Romantic as a teenager). I love the individuality and colourfulness of the arty, hippy style and like to express that love of colour in my jewellery and I seem to be increasingly drawn to nature as inspiration for my beadwork, my crystal tulip and flower flare rings are good examples of this.

Spring is my favourite season, I look forward to the fresh new colours during the long winter months and I wanted to reflect that in my name and my son was born in April, so that part was easy! I want my jewellery to evoke that feeling of happiness that I get when I see beautiful spring flowers, memories of April stay with me all year and I make my pieces with the intention that they will stay fresh and pretty enough to passed down to future generations. So I had the words April and Forever floating about in my mind for a while, I played with lots of different fancy combinations but realised that simple is often best and chose April Is Forever. It definitely reflects the hippy in me!
