Dogeared was born on the beautiful beaches of Los Angeles in 1991, when founder and creative force Marcia Maizel-Clarke started making jewelry on her kitchen table and selling her unique pieces at the Rose Bowl Flea Market in Pasadena. A fierce believer in the power of words and positive energy, Marcia gave her beautiful designs a voice, dedicating each jewel with a name and a message. The result was Dogeared; a brand that is all about the connections that people make with their jewels, and with each other.
The idea that great style should be effortless, authentic and real has evolved into Dogeared’s core design philosophy: keep it simple, make it special, and create timeless jewelry that celebrates self-expression and relationships. Marcia counts life in Southern California as her greatest inspiration, and the cool, uncomplicated nature of her designs reflect this modern, laid-back lifestyle.
Inspired by a real love, Marcia and Merlin tell us how a few kind words turned meaningful everyday pieces that empower women all over the world.
