Jewellery & Me
After spending a summer working at a jewellery store when I was 17, I became enamoured with the world of gemstones and metals but never thought having my own shop was a viable career option.I’d always had a hit and miss relationship with jewellery. Being a broke student most of my life, I couldn’t afford solid gold, yet I’m super allergic to nickel (which most costume jewellery contains & also the culprit of most jewellery allergy). So there were times that I’d nervously put something beautiful on just to hope that my skin wouldn’t complain.
How MISSA & KISSA Started
The idea of starting my own brand came to me when I found some unworn jewellery I put away in the drawer; when I looked inside, it had already tarnished!
After months of in-depth research and preparation - and a lot of late nights - I launched MISSA & KISSA in September 2021 to bring high-quality, hypoallergenic jewellery that is personal and accessible for all. It's now been one year and it's safe to say it is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I love every second of it!
What Jewellery Means to me
Jewellery boosts my confidence. It allows us to transform ourselves entirely in a split second and completes our outfit regardless of the occasion. Easily the highlight of my day. Also, every piece of jewellery tells a story. It keeps memories alive and can hold an immense sentimental value.
