Hi! I am Melanie Hernquist. I help women start their own fashion business. I stumbled on Stella & Dot's website late one night while online and kept going back to the site over and over again. I was about to place an order when I realized I could sell it. I was going through a difficult divorce and I thought, "I may as well do this. I will have pretty jewelry and I will at least have a reason to dress up and leave the house each day." That's all I wanted. When that box arrived at my door, I got the pretty jewelry and so much more. I got ME back. I went out and started doing trunk shows. I had no intentions of building a business with this. Now, I have a thriving business with Stella & Dot and my dream is to help more women feel as confident and loved as I do. More than jewelry, more than a paycheck, even more than a global social network, becoming a Stella & Dot Stylist gives you the freedom to style your own life. Find happiness on your own terms.
