New Year, New Look

This week is an exciting week for me – Melissa Lew has a fresh new look! I’m so excited to share my new branding and felt that it was a great way to start the new year.

The new logo is bright and cheerful and is a reminder to live life in full bloom each and every day. I can’t wait to move forward with this refreshed brand as I feel that it better reflects what drives my brand – to inspire and motivate others. To bring others joy. To raise others up.

It’s more than just jewelry. It’s a celebration of beauty, strength, and life’s amazing moments. Good things do happen.

Here’s to an amazing 2019!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! May 2019 bring you great joy and many amazing things to celebrate. As a reminder to live life in full bloom (and to help you stay organized), my FREE 2019 calendar can be found at at https://www.melissalew.com/2018/12/14/2019-calendar/.

I hope you are having an amazing holiday season filled with love and joy!

With your help this year, I was able to work with a number of non profits who share a similar vision of making the world a better place. I couldn’t have done this without your support. As always, thank you for your support this holiday season and always. It means the world to me!

2019 Calendar

My 2019 calendar is now available to download! It features a cherry blossom motif (reminding us to live life in full bloom) in the 2019 Pantone color of the year – Living Coral! “Living Coral emits the desired, familiar, and energizing aspects of color found in nature. In its glorious, yet unfortunately more elusive, display beneath the sea, this vivifying and effervescent color mesmerizes the eye and mind.” As seen in some sneak peeks on Instagram this Fall/Winter, I will be release many new designs this Spring in this beautiful color!
