we are apse (/aps)
POETIC JEWELS DESIGNED TO ENCOURAGE YOU TO BE HONEST IN YOUR SELF-DISCOVERY PROCESS AND HANDCRAFTED TO HUMANIZE EVERYONE.
Becoming who you are is a process and jewelry honors everyone's humanity.
We want to use jewelry as a vehicle to help you move through the barriers that might keep you from being honest with who you are and engaging with your healing process.
apse was established in 2016 by wife and husband, Hayley Boyd and Jarod Faw.
We became each other's best friends while getting fine art degrees in sculpture and printmaking, and partnered up for life afterward.
We created apse to make honest self-expression simple so that your becoming process might be a more transparent one, to encourage those of us with messy internal processes and unpredictable self-image and leverage the act of putting on jewelry as one of mercy, empathy and celebration for who you have been and who you are becoming, in every stage.
We love to use jewelry as an equalizer of us all and we hope that apse inspires you to engage with the work of humanizing everyone: in your relationship to yourself, your direct communities and the globe at large.
xo, Hayley and Jarod
