Peace & Love
Why we ♥ Earthy Luxe
We love Earthy Luxe almost as much as we love the designer/creator April Martin. April was one of the very first jewelry designers to reach out to us before OCSR was even a year old, and Rachael and I immediately fell in love with her collection. Handmade with everything from pearls to Alaskan deer suede to a combination of the two, Earthy Luxe has the perfect piece for everyone. If you’re looking for a one of a kind statement piece that can be worn with anything from your favorite pair of jeans to a LBD, this is the line for you! We were fortunate enough to spend some time with April and get to know the woman behind the brand. April embodies everything that is Earthy Luxe, cool, laid back, and one of a kind.

How long have you been designing/making jewelry and at what point did you decide to make it your career?
Going on about 10 years…I kind of fell into this…I worked in the tech industry for 15 years….started dabbling on the side creating things, lost my job and just continued. I taught myself about basic construction and the rest just fell into place. A happy accident…. =)
