Most women absolutely love jewelry and all moms love showing off their kiddos, so what happens when you put those two loves together? Perfection.
April, a wife and mother of two, is the owner of “Once Upon A Memory” where she specializes in personalized jewelry. I have personally known April for a very long time, in fact pretty much as long as I can remember and she is such a sweet and caring person. This definitely shows through in her work. April has always enjoyed crafting and has tried her hand at many different venues including photography, cake decorating, knitting, stained glass, and more.
About a year ago she began making jewelry and instantly knew that it was for her. April enjoys making all kinds of jewelry but has decided to focus on personalized jewelry for the time being, especially since it combines many of her favorite hobbies. April uses many materials including hand cut glass, sterling silver, copper, brass, suede, pearls, swarovski crystals, and more. April is currently enjoying growing her business and hopes within the next few months to expand into home parties to offer her customers the opportunity to earn free jewelry and hostess only items. And I must say April’s necklaces are absolutely stunning. Here is an example of her work…
The photo above is the “Simply Sweet” personalized photo necklace. This is a handmade necklace and is made with hand cut glass and lead free jewelry solder. It is finished with a sterling silver necklace and a fresh water pearl wrapped in sterling silver. The photo pendant is approximately one inch square and can either have a photo on each side or one photo and a message as in the example above. The total cost of the Simply Sweet necklace is $45.80 which includes shipping and handling. When ordering a personalized item from Once Upon A Memory please note that it will take two to four weeks to complete as all items are custom made.
A little message from April…
I believe that dreams do come true, with true love everyday life is a fairytale, and memories are meant to be shared. I am a wife and also a mother of two wonderful children. I hope you can see the joy that has gone into each piece of jewelry that is handmade with care by myself. Selecting a Once Upon A Memory creation is a wonderful way to share your favorite memories with others by having a one of a kind piece of jewelry made for yourself or for a gift.
