What's the BUZZ? Made by Malyia x BuzzFeed #BuyBlack Pop-Up

Made by Malyia

On the last day of February, we ended black history month with BuzzFeed's #BuyBlack Pop-up shop! The amazing editor's at BuzzFeed brought together a collective of small black-owned businesses. This moment was a full circle moment for us, last year BuzzFeed featured our brand 9 Beauty And Style Products You Didn't Know You Needed Until Now. It was one of our first major features and they have continued to highlight and support us. 

Check out the pictures from BuzzFeed's #BuyBlack Pop-up Shop below! I met so many business owners I admire like Danessa Lyrics, it was a great time. The BuzzFeed office is a photoshoot heaven so be prepared, I took pictures all over the office! lol

To celebrate, enjoy 15% off your entire order March 1st through April 1st. Use code BUZZFEED at checkout. Find out what's the buzz. Shop here

Year Review: Jewels Thank you for ROCKING with us in 2016!

Made by Malyia

DSC03183.JPG

Jewels I can't thank you enough for making 2016 the best one yet. This year was truly a journey and marked my year anniversary as an entrepreneur. One of my goals when I started Made by Malyia was to be able to bring everyone along on this journey as I grew the brand. None of this would be possible without your consistent support so I wanted to review the year and let you know what's next for the brand. 

I started off the year with a modeling contract that was made possible because of my appearance at Afropunk a few months earlier. I released a new collection and was featured by several blogs. 

In June my jewelry as well as myself was featured in the Colored Girl Campaign. The campaign was featured by Teen Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Instyle, EssenceYahoo Beauty and many more

I was the natural hair model on the Today Show Summer Hair styles segment in August that went viral, the segment didn't go as planned, receiving over 10 million views. At first I didn't want the segment to overshadow the progress I made with the brand. When people started to leave comments asking where they could purchase the jewelry I had on the show, which of course was the full Made by Malyia collection, I knew my hard work wouldn't go unrecognized.

I returned to Afropunk in Brooklyn for the second consecutive year as vendor. I received more overwhelming love and support.

What's Next for the brand? 

I kick of the year as Keynote speaker in Washington DC. at the Forward Conference January 6-8 2017, where I will be sharing my journey and how to live your best life. I will be hosting the Curls on the Block Launch party in Denver, Colorado January 28, 2017.  

I will be releasing a new campaign and much more. 

Jewels, Thank you for rocking with us. Here's to making 2017 even better. 

 

 

AFROPUNK 2016 x MADE BY MALYIA JEWELRY- POWER TO THE PARTY-RECAP

Made by Malyia

We returned for Afropunk Brooklyn 2016 and this year was better than ever! I loved connecting with all the people who discovered our brand for the first time and the jewels who returned and remember us from last year. Leading up to Afropunk I was super nervous, even more than the first time I was selected from hundreds of applicants to be a vendor. This year my expectations were much higher because I wanted to improve from my freshman year and perfect my festival pop-up. 

The love and energy was overwhelming and my main focus was engaging with everyone that stopped by the booth. I enlisted my best friend and girlboss wedding and event planner Michelle to keep me as sane and organized like she does her brides on their big day. The most popular pieces were our "Commitment Issues" nose cuff, "Boundless" Choker, "Perpetual" wrap necklace and "Venus" Body chain. By the end of day 1 most of the top sellers were sold out. 

Afropunk is more than a festival it is a collective of individuals overflowing with creativity and self-love. The #BlackGirlMagic, #MelaninMagic, #CareFreeBlackGirl, #_____ add any collective self-love hashtag and chances are it's on full display and I'm here for all of it.  One of my favorite things to do is venturing away from the booth to check out all the dope looks. This year everyone came with their fashion A game. In my opinion the fashion at Afropunk rivals that of fashion week and lets be honest the majority of designers draw inspirations from street style and events like Afropunk. This year their was no shortage of inspiration. 

I missed most of the performers but had the chance to watch Ceelo and Ice Cube. They were amazing! Next year I'm posting "I'll be back in 20 minutes" sign so I can catch so more performances lol.

Thank you to everyone that stopped by to say hi and shop with us! Welcome to the Made by Malyia Jewelry tribe! See you next year!

In partnership with Etsy and Lionsgate Entertainment, I have been selected to create a design inspired by the mega blockbuster hit.

MBM jewelry turns 2- Happy Anniversary

Made by Malyia

This is a major milestone and truly the beginning of what I plan on making an Empire. What started out as a creative outlet designing jewelry I love has grown into a business.

In the past two years I designed a new collection, met my jewels at my first pop up shop at Raw Artists, and collaborated with my first designer Lois London.

I want to thank all my jewels, friends and family that have helped MBM jewelry celebrate it's 2nd birthday. A special thank you to Sherod Lewis my PR manager and digital strategist.

I look forward to sharing this journey with you!
