Compliment. is one of those companies that you fall more in love with the more you learn about them. Melissa (the founder and creative director) of Compliment. was a high school AVID teacher…..so she spent a decade teaching high schoolers how to succeed, and preparing them for college. She always had made jewelry on the side, and was inspired while making a piece for one of her students to wear to homecoming. Melissa began to teach full time, AND run her company full time……let me tell you….practically impossible! This year, Melissa made the difficult decision to work with Compliment. full time……and I think you’ll see why…..each hand crafted piece is STUNNING!
In addition to making adorable pieces……Compliment. has a few special things that I LOVE:
– each jewelry piece comes in a box with an individualized compliment card, you can choose which you’d like to include when ordering….and send it to yourself or a friend!
-Compliment.’s Scholarship Fund is pretty awesome, a portion of every sale is dedicated to providing scholarships for first-generation students who are college bound. ( Check out Melissa’s blog post about this year’s scholarships, it pretty much made this inner city teacher fall in love with Compliment. all over again!)
Discount Code: LIPGLOSS for 20% off orders of $50 or more (hello holiday gifts!)
Compliment. is giving one lucky reader a Kindness necklace (the one I’m wearing here!) in a color of their choice!
