April’s passion for color, clean lines her studies of ethnic designs are traditions are the major influences of her jewelry. She spends hours creating pieces she loves and fulfilling custom orders from clients who want ASJ pieces for a formal event, bridesmaids for a wedding, and even pageant jewelry. She gifted me with a beautiful handmade necklace and hoop earrings—both of which  I adore. Here are a few snapshots of her studio...
