April not only has an exquisite eye for detail as seen in her beautiful jewelry, but a vision that encompasses a gallery of artists who echo her personal passions and work. What a dream to also be able to live and work in your studio! I feel lucky that April and I got a chance to meet one day (she purchased a wool zip top bag to help display her jewelry) and cannot wait to read more of her work and life!
About: I am a hopeful soon-to-be-mother through adoption. When I searched my heart, adoption seemed the right path to become a mother. My husband and I are awaiting news on a referral from Central Asia for a baby girl. It has been a long road and International Adoption is very unpredictable. But we have faith that the right little one will come to us.
I lived in San Francisco for 18 years and then bought a wonderfully creative building in Berkeley in 2005 which is the umbrella for my home, my jewelers studio, my husband’s sculpture & public art office & last but not least my gallery. My dream is that our new space allows me to have my career and also be a mom.
I am a Jeweler, who owns a gallery: Shibumi Gallery which features Contemporary Art Jewelry, Sculpture and by event Ocelot Clothing.
I also do design consultation, my specialty is artwork and object placement and making a space feel harmonious. I love it when things are considered!
I’m so appreciative to have a creative group to turn to when I need like minded folks around for inspiration and company. I also hope we inspire other mothers to keep in touch of their creativity in their lives.
