Who We Are
My name is Melanie Harris a.k.a LLA; raised in Brooklyn by two Bajan parents I was always encouraged to pursue my passions. Creating fashion pieces is a way for me to express my creativity in a fun and limitless ways. I create products that I would be proud to wear myself and in fact, do wear.
I’ve always been in awe as to how so many people have been blessed with similar talents, yet each person has a unique signature. Jewelry can make you feel beautiful, bold, unique, fashion-forward, vintage and the list goes on and on. Who knew that something as simple as a necklace or a pair of earrings could enhance a simple ensemble, uplift your mood, give you confidence, allow you to express your sense of style, step out and be daring knowing all eyes are on you. I am happy to be a part of that journey with you as all my pieces are made just for you, that Imperfect person.
I started making jewelry because of my love to shop and I enjoy buying fashion jewelry but couldn’t always find a piece I had envisioned. With my family’s nudging to sell what I created Imperfections was born in 2011. Although I acquired my license to sell I still didn’t feel confident and skilled enough to truly put my products out there, I was afraid. Fast forward to 2017 and I acquired skills that made me confident enough to place my products out there, let me tell you it's like baring your soul. Finally, in 2019 I had the finances to launch as an LLC and take that first big leap to grow my brand. My journey has brought me here.... my own website (which you know if you're reading this) that showcases all of my hard work (my babies) that are well made, with care and love.
Will Smith said that “the best things in life lie on the other side of fear,” so with that being said I humbly welcome you to my creative world.
Everything is hand-crafted with care and love. All pieces are one of a kind. Delivery options and payment methods are generous and flexible. Please browse through our product gallery and experience shopping with ImperfectionsbyLLA_LLC for yourself.
