About Earth Love Jewels
Hi! I'm Melissa and welcome to Earth Love Jewels. It gives me such pleasure to share the fruition that is my passion for beautiful stones and jewels. The name is derived from my two little jewels, my daughter Mila whose name means "love," and my son Adam whose name means "earth." Their energetic spirits are what inspired me to discover a passion for creating pieces that are intended to promote positive energy. My daughter is the ultimate girly girl with a touch of artisan in her. She can be found decorating herself with my jewellery, her dress-up jewellery, and any adhesive embellishments I happen to leave lying around in my craft kit.
I've been making jewellery for as long as I can remember. To the good old days at day camp when gimp or plastic lace was the current fad of the late 90's. Mine of course would have some element of glitter or beads added to it. Fast forward to my preteen years when I was inspired by a fellow classmate to create glass beaded jewellery that which would become easy friendship tokens.
In my teens, I worked for a jewellery kiosk in the mall with exposure to various types of metals, semi precious stones, and costume jewellery. The obsession continues.
I think it is safe to say I've had my fair share of exposure to the fashion accessories industry having both made jewellery and been employed by a jewellery store. This experience has led me to grow my knowledge of materials and stones as well as develop a keen eye for quality when it comes to metals and stones.
The stones I use are high quality Grade A stones and each piece represents a spiritual or emotional connection. The influence of the particular stones I use derive from the four elements, Earth, Water, Air, and Fire. Each piece created has a meaning and a healing property. My intention with each piece I craft is to share positive energy and spread each intention and power that resonates with each stone.
