Article on The Alexandrite Self Love Pinky Ring


The One Who Is Ever Changing

"My ring, ever-changing in its colors, shining so brightly one moment then dark and rich the next, is my reminder that change is beautiful and how deeply I feel is not a flaw but a gift. Because if I can know such levels of sadness over the years, imagine the extraordinary levels of joy I can reach. My ring is my reminder."

Shalini's Pinky Promise to Herself

Two words. Eight letters. Say them and you’re all yours.  Self Love.  Looking back at the twenty-five years that I have been around, it amazes me to think that it took me so long to embrace this concept. Self love is complex, but it is also very simple. It’s a lot of effort that you have to put in to become the best version of yourself, but it is also defined by the small moments that make you who you are. Overall, I like to think of self love as a balancing act between those big formative steps and the...

The MINE Necklace Makes A Bold Statement About Belonging

I'm so proud to launch my latest product, the MINE necklace. The MINE necklace makes a bold statement to the world about belonging.  What does it mean to belong? It is both a matter of possession, and inclusion. We spend much of our lives seeking to belong- to a person, to a group. And sometimes in that pursuit, we relinquish our autonomy, our worth, our very wholeness with ourselves. This statement necklace tells the world, I am MINE. Is there a more powerful statement to be made? When you wear it, you take possession of yourself, and responsibility for yourself....

The Alexandrite Self Love Pinky Ring Is Here (June Birthstone Ring!)

At long last, and after many requests, the Alexandrite Self Love Pinky Ring has arrived and she doesn't disappoint. Pictures simply don't do this gem justice.

The One Who Came Back to Life (With a Vengeance)

"In 2018, I went through a terrible breakup when someone I thought I trusted. It was so bad that for months I didn’t know who I was. I felt like I had lost myself and my creativity. I deleted all of my social media and completely isolated myself with the exception of Pinterest which helped me heal and find myself again. One day while pinning to my narcissistic abuse and self love recovery board, I stumbled across a Fred and Far pin. I IMMEDIATELY visited the website and wrote to Melody to thank her for advocating self-love. That was a pivotal...

Article on The One Who Got Out


The One Who Got Out

"I was in a abusive marriage for 6 years. God gave me a final opportunity to get out. I had been ignoring it, trying to see the best and praying that things would improve. I see now, God was trying to tell me to leave from the beginning. I saw this as a ad first and was immediately drawn to it. Pinky promises since childhood have been an unbreakable promise! As I go though this journey of healing, I thought, as I take my wedding rings off I'm replacing with the pinky promise to take care of me for once. Even...

The One Who Was Reborn

"To me, this ring symbolizes a rebirth in the form of self-love. With my tribe, my new home, and my new ring, I slowly put the pieces back together and become the girl I lost over the years- the girl beyond the hardened facade." "To this day, I can’t remember a time that self-love wasn’t something that felt impossible- unattainable. Growing up, I paled in comparison to my brilliant, older sister. While she took her high school classes at Ohio State and scored a perfect on her SAT, I grasped at anything noteworthy about myself. I sat in silence as...

My Name Is Melody, And I'm A Highly Sensitive Person

I'm grateful for the opportunity to share my story as a highly sensitive person with Authority Magazine. See below for the most vulnerable and freeing interview of my life. Reframe Your Sensitivities as Superpowers. When I was a litigation attorney, my sensitivity was something that made it impossible for me to do my job. I remember one project in particular, where I was tasked with tabulating and explaining all the bills that had accumulated during a years-long case (the bills my firm had charged added up to millions), I felt so bad for the client that I could barely speak. Now...
