Hi, I'm April.

I'm the owner, designer, and everything of Hapanstance. I love making jewelry and have done it since I was a kid. My designs are heavily influenced by growing up in Los Angeles, spending summers in Hong Kong, and the time I spent on the beaches of San Diego and throughout Latin America before moving to NYC.

I've been lucky to travel a lot, particularly though Asia, Latin America, and the American Southwest. The colors and motifs of these places have influenced my aesthetic and I employ them in my jewelry.

Otherwise, I work for a tech company by day - it balances out the occasional angst of coming up with new designs. In my spare time I love exploring NYC and the surrounding areas (shoutout to the Hudson Valley, eastern Long Island, and Outer Banks) and like taking pictures while out and about. I also have occasional photography shows around NYC.
