Harmony by Melissa Lee for Riley Blake

This collection is, first and foremost, inspired by my love of honeybees! My name, Melissa, comes from the Greek words for "honey" and "bee," so I've always had something of an affinity for them. They're hardworking, cute, and most importantly, essential to the health of much of out planet, so I wanted to honor that in my work. The collection is also inspired by the forest, plant life, and animals that populate my home at the bottom of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in Northern California.
