Uhhh today will be fantastic. It is incredibly beautiful outside. I met a wonderful new friend John Edward Rozier IV, a local photographer who works in between Philly, and NYC. Circumstances brought us together and it's surprising we did not meet sooner! We are going to do a beauty editorial shot today and I am super stoked. Later in the day I am going to make a cup of tea and sit down and write my goals for November. (i know I'm a little late) This should be a great month for business and I am going to learn how to be baker extraordinaire, maybe take an embellishment class and I would love to take a painting class as well! I am so grateful for people who do what they love to do because they inspire me.

SO Im obsessedly sitting here looking at everything 50's. I Inspired myself to make a red that is super wearable on almost anyone. I want to give myself a challenge, and Im the best person for this because I am the girl who just does NOT look good in any red.

Jewelry designer Kristyn April, founder of Kristyn April Designs, creates one-of-a-kind, handcrafted jewelry and accessories using primarily recycled materials to bring original works of art to your world. What started as a hobby while Kristyn worked as a make-up artist in NYC for 4 years has become a lifestyle for the designer, who returned to Philadelphia this Summer to bring her works of art to “the city of brotherly love!” To inspire her designs, Kristyn thoroughly explores antique stores and estate sales for vintage treasures, which she then deconstructs and reworks to form new, truly unique "green" pieces of wearable art.
“I love the idea of fashion as art. In my opinion, jewelry is the most expressive part of a person’s wardrobe. From a locket with your parents’ pictures to a bracelet you acquired on a spiritual journey, or a symbol that speaks to you in some special way, it has always been interesting to me to see how jewelry can really touch a person’s soul. I love that I can express myself by making what I like and someone who has a completely different style than me will adore that piece just as much—or more— than I do—because it speaks to them. I will design something to be worn one way and someone else picks it up and wears it differently. The piece now shadows part of that person and that is what art is. A part of someone that they are trying to express.”
