Fresh Faves: Melody Ehsani

I first saw Melody Ehsani's stunning creations on and immediately fell in love with her standout jewelry and vibrant shoes. After reading up on her, I appreciate her so much more! Miss Ehsani came up in a Persian family. Rather than adhering to her culture's standards for women, Melody was inspired to follow her dreams of design. As a result, she creates powerful, edgy pieces meant for the independent women with the inner fire to make things happen. In her words, "We are sexy, classy & bold, with a deeper, unshakable driving purpose." I feel that!

Miss Ehsani has upped the style factor for artists like Rihanna, Keri Hilson, Angela & Vanessa Simmons, Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys & Amber Rose. Her three-finger rings and gigantic matrix earrings are all over the place! I think I might need to add a custom necklace to my own collection here soon. (See Rihanna's)

Melody just released her fall/winter 2010 accessories collection last week. Shoes are coming soon - for now check out her latest!
