Shop Friend: Shibumi Studio & Gallery

above: April Higashi's jewelry line carries gorgeous natural and raw gems and diamonds.

What a delight it was to meet the very talented April Higashi! April runs Shibumi Studio & Gallery in Berkeley, California which features her own line of jewelry as well as a gallery of other amazingly talented artists. Looking to bookmark unique pieces for engagement rings and wedding rings? I would absolutely look here for pieces that are both chic and organic and will tell the story of your union. above: An artist from April's Shibumi Gallery: Susanne Matsche. I love the juxtaposition of an ornate interior and modern exterior.

above: Artist Julia Turner. I want those hammered gold rings!
