Day To Night

Honey & Silk

Fall is all about easy transitional style that can effortlessly go from day to night. A great statement piece can instantly dress up a look, and because BIG necklaces aren’t really our specialty, we went big on the earrings this season. The new Be Your Own Kind Of Beautiful earrings collection was designed with the modern woman in mind, one who wants to make her own rules, be her own kind of beautiful. The sleek geometric designs in muted metallics are super chic on everyone, they’re sure to emphasize you individual style, whatever it may be.

Cali blogger Honey & Silk shows us how she styles her Pyramid and Moroccan pairs. The Pyramid earrings add just the right amount of edge to loose-fit tank and leather pants. And a bold red jumpsuit is exactly the type of outfit these earrings were made for! Throw on a pair of statement earrings to complete the perfect look whether it’s date night or Sunday brunch. You can’t go wrong. (trust us)

Inside Edition: Part 4 with Marcia

Marcia-&-Merlin-2

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.”

quote Good-Luck-Elephant

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

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!”

quote2 MMC-and-Merlin

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.

Inside Edition: Part 3 with Marcia

IMG_6406

“Right now, I think Balance is one of the hottest concepts we have.” Marcia explains, “It’s such an easy piece to wear and every person I have ever met will tell you that they are personally striving for balance. It resonates with a lot of people.”

Seeking harmony amongst all the complicated aspects of life is a universal desire that we all seem to strive for. We sat down with Marcia to try and gain some insight as to how this mom, wife, business owner & philanthropist maintains balance in her own life. “It’s about continuing to move forward,” she explains.

quote

IMG_6390

“For me, it’s not so much about balancing your time. It’s about balancing your energy and making sure that you are giving appropriate energy to the different parts of your life. Whether it’s your kids, your husband, work, and of course yourself – it’s about figuring out where your focus needs to be and when, that’s what it’s more about to me.”

quote2

Always sounding easier said than done, Marcia elaborates on how she does it. “You have to keep doing things that allow the energy to flow both ways. That’s why it’s so important to give back. When you’re involved with non-profits and actually go out into your community, you’re getting so much energy in return that it’s like you have this storage bank of goodness. When you have that, you’re able to give that energy back to the people in your life who need it. That includes yourself.”

“I’m not gonna lie, I have amazing support in my life. We have amazing people that support what we’re doing and trying to do, including our Dogeared family, but it’s all about doing what feels right. I think if it feels right and it’s forward motion, it doesn’t always have to BE right.”

IMG_6228

Personal favorites from the collection? “The balance tube bracelet: it’s so easy to put on with the magnet, and it looks amazing. It gets on so fast that it actually makes your life easier! I also wear the balance bar earrings all the time. This collection really speaks to the minimalist trend we’re seeing on women right now. I think a good strategy for fashion and life is just, ‘Keep things real, pretty, easy, and balanced.'”

“In our design meetings, we’re always trying to expand our core collections and add meaningful pieces that can be worn everyday. The idea of putting 100 positive, affirming words on a card was super exciting to me.”

“That’s part of the creative freedom in design,” Marcia explains. “Sometimes the jewelry comes first, other times it’s just a really powerful idea that puts the process into motion.”

quote-1

“I’m super inspired by typography and graphics and always come back from traveling with all kinds of ideas I’ve seen in stores, subways, buses, street art, just being somewhere new! When it came to designing 100 Good Wishes, I was very clear on what I wanted the card to look like and how I wanted it to make people feel. Words like compassion, strength, confidence … I just wanted people to have this powerful connection to it. Whatever words they connected with, I knew it could bring something good to people in a universal way.”

IMG_6485

“Once we established the message and the card, we started designing the necklace. I knew we needed a 100 of something… and that’s a lot for us! 100 of anything will create length, which I love!”

quote-2

Marcia wears her 100 Good Wishes almost everyday. “I have so many of them! I think the reason I always choose it is because it feels like a very powerful necklace. Powerful with positive intent.” 100 good wishes. 100 good things. It’s all about making good things happen!
