About SmithyJewelry:

Hi, I am April Laird, the owner and designer behind Smithy Jewelry. My company was born from a deep affinity of jewelry, accessories, and crafting. By day, I work as an art department prop assistant and set dresser for network television, in Los Angeles. I love my job, but I wanted a more creative outlet. With the encouragement of my wonderful friends and family, I took the plunge and opened my Etsy shop last fall. Owning and operating a small handmade business is no small task, but it is hugely gratifying!

I grew up watching my mother create and sell her crafts and gifts, in addition to her full-time teaching job. I helped Mom paint and assemble her wood and ceramic goods and I assisted at craft fairs, which I loved. Crafty creativity has always been in my blood.

What began as a gifting hobby and diy fun has now grown into a budding small business!
By combining nuances of bohemian Art Deco and Art Nouveau I strive to emulate the sophistication of the Jazz Age through modern handmade craftsmanship. I create wearable art for fashion forward and romantic women, and I could not be happier doing so.
