Beauty guru Mandy Madden Kelley’s affinity for design and style started at a young age. As a little girl she used to watch her grandmother get ready in front of her makeup vanity, donning beautiful handmade pieces of jewelry. Mandy’s most sentimental necklace in her current collection belonged to her grandmother, naturally.

“Wearing her necklace makes me feel like I carry her energy with me wherever I go,” says Mandy, who dreams of passing her entire jewelry collection onto her own daughter, Kaia, one day. “I want her to have something special that will always remind her of her family, history and heritage.”

In addition to jewelry, Mandy wants to pass admirable family values onto her daughter as wella mission that’s already showing early signs of success. “One aspect of my daughter's personality that took me by surprise was how incredibly giving she was at such a young age.”

“This too shall pass” is Mandy’s life motto. A sentiment that’s been especially relevant during the days of “stay at home” orders and social distancing. Leave it to Mandy to make the most of it, with her powerhouse work ethic and the same giving attitude she’s passed onto Kaia. She recently launched a free e-book on skincare, complete with the at-home tips and tricks she swears by. DIY facials? Talk about the perfect mother-daughter activity!
