Melissa is one of those people who radiate love. It's impossible not to be infected by her authentic optimism and desire to help all people feel special. Her business Melissa Christine - Show Yourself Love was developed after her PNDA diagnosis and her need during that time to show herself care and love. She wants to make other mums feel beautiful because creating and wearing jewellery was her way of making herself feel good, to smile.
Her pieces are all about helping you sparkle from the inside out; every day, every night and for every occasion because putting on a pair of beautiful earrings that make you smile is a way of saying "yeah, I got this. I can do this."
"My name is Melissa and I am the owner and creator of Melissa Christine - Show Yourself Love! I have always loved jewellery and being able to make it has become a dream come true.
I've been married for 7 years and have two beautiful children - a girl and a boy. I feel very blessed to have my family around me this year I was diagnosed with PNDA and while I wish it would go away, it has shaped me into the woman I am today. I am a more compassionate and understanding person because of this.
My biggest inspiration for things comes from my love of ballet - I was a dancer for 18 years before stopping due to many reasons. Flowy, glittery, soft, gentle, sparkly patterns, fabrics, and other things help me form my creations. These are also adjectives I would use to describe myself too
Music has also been a big part of my life. I played the violin for 15 years and constantly hear songs - especially when people say something, I will start singing in my head I am always learning and trying new things and am so glad I started my journey of opening up my business. It's just the beginning and I'm excited!"
