I've talked a lot about my favorite jewelry, Melinda Maria, but I don't know if I've ever "properly" introduced it.
I grew up with two aunts who were heavily involved in my life. Both smart, funny, gorgeous and wicked cool. I wanted to be them when I grew up. I still look at them today like I did when I was 8. One of them runs a medical spa with my mama and the other started a jewelry line, Melinda Maria Jewelry. When Melinda was younger she loved going to the local bead stores in town. This one in particular, in Paia, Hawaii, she fell in love with almost 20 years ago and then began her business.
Started small, selling her pieces at farmers markets and turned into a world wide recognized line, found at Nordstrom and so many other stores.
Just goes to show, if you have a passion, follow it with blood, sweat and tears. @mmjewelry
