April was another trade out that resulted in more than something tangible. Upon opening, wearing, and loving her jewelry, I started to learn more about the lovely lady behind the elements she worked with.
All of April’s pieces are handmade + a portion of each sale is donated to aid domestic abuse survivors. The name “April May” is April’s own mantra that “she can” and has when she became her own survivor of domestic abuse.
Being surrounded by thoughtful, genuine people + women aligned with their values and always striving to be their best selves is the reality I yearn to keep creating. Watching people live their truth makes me so jazzed and I’m so grateful to have been able to wear April May pieces — they helped keep me grounded and feel confident throughout filming — and for a nervous nelly like me, that was a gift.
