The idea of togetherness and family ties together everything we do at Dogeared. From our collections to the meaning behind each piece, to relationships and our commitment to the environment and communities – all are established with the core intent of connection and being a part of something greater.
Marcia explains, “I think the best way to achieve that is to have a positive attitude, good intent and karmic kindness. This is our process and it’s how we’ve created our own good luck.”
The Good Luck Elephant is a direct reflection of this way of thinking. Marcia loves to wear this piece. She says, “For me, he’s so strong — big but so kind and wise. Elephants are loving and loyal… And when their trunks are up, they’re showering you with good luck. At Dogeared, we all want to have those qualities!”
Marcia considers this one of her lucky charms, and if you didn’t already assume this — she has many more! “When I travel, I have a little key fob thing that me and my girlfriends pass around…. it has many charms on it, Dogeared and others. I wear my ‘Not to Worry Beads’ when I’m looking for strength to do whatever it is I’m trying to accomplish that day.”
Karma is another collection that encompasses the beauty and philosophy of Dogeared. Marcia explains, “It’s all about the circle, what it symbolizes and basically the idea of what goes around comes around. It’s a powerful icon because it conveys wholeness and completeness and totality. When we created the Karma collection, I knew it would be classic, but I didn’t think it would have the longevity and success that we’ve seen…. I’m sort of still in awe of it. This is my go-to gift — you can give it to anyone and wear it with anything!”
Family and relationships complete Dogeared’s circle. It should come to no surprise that the Karma collection reminds Marcia of her husband, Merlin. “He’s a really amazing human being. He came into my life for a reason or many reasons, and he’s taught me so much about life and doing good things. At his essence, he’s truly kind and generous. It’s part of his being and being in a lifelong partnership with him has really opened up my eyes to a lot.”
So whether it’s love, luck, positive energy, wishes or karma, Marcia started Dogeared with the intent to provide women with real style and meaningful messages. Our jewelry really captures the best of good things….it’s what makes us Dogeared.
