Melencia Jewels stands by authenticity, uniqueness, and self-love. My goal is to spread the message “Do what you love, because you love it.” When people wear my products or even come across my business, I hope they are inspired and motivated to do what they love, and be themselves. 

As a woman, as a Black woman, as a Black business owner, I have felt the sting of other people's opinions and preconceptions—and I'm sure we all have at some point. It's all too easy to get caught up in what other people think of you, or to try and live your life according to someone else's expectations.

I believe that self-love is the way forward. When you love yourself, you feel confident being yourself—and when you feel confident being yourself, you accomplish things that no one but yourself would have thought possible. That's how I've been able to confidently create Melencia Jewels.

What others think of you should have no bearing on how you live your life. I hope that by living in my truth and doing what I love, you are encouraged to live in your truth, and do what you love.
