Dogeared was founded by self-taught designer Marcia Maizel-Clarke in 1991. Grown from the desire to share good energy with the world, Maizel-Clarke harnessed the positive power of her California home and started hand-making jewelry. Thanks to her "student of life" attitude, Maizel-Clarke immersed herself in all design aspects and fell in love with the creation process.
Inspired by the Californian lifestyle, Maizel-Clarke sought to design pieces that could connect with women who, like herself, were young at heart. A bohemian mindset with a modern twist, each piece compliments the aesthetics of its particular wearer. Dogeared collections allow the consumer to experiment with different looks while creating their own vibrant, mindful-of-self style.
Dogeared is a trendsetting fashion brand that creates handcrafted jewels and gifts in Culver City, California. Dogeared is committed to bringing positive energy into the world one jewel at a time, while maintaining awareness of the environment around them.
Dogeared Jewels & Gifts was founded in 1991, in Venice, California, by Marcia Maizel-Clarke. "As a buyer, she built a successful career on her expertise in fashion merchandising and retail strategy, along with her natural creative abilities as a designer." The response to her early designs and the success of her Make a Wish series of necklaces gave birth to the sucessful organization Dogeared has become today. What once started as a hobby later evolved into Marcia's works being sold at seven Macy’s stores and at the Rose Bowl Swap Meets. Dogeared Jewels & Gifts has grown from a small Venice Beach design studio to a southern California creative haven, where positive ideologies and values are mixed for the overall satisfaction of Dogeared's customers. Marcia continues to build the success of the organization with her husband and creative director Merlin Clarke.
Dogeared loves to spread positive energy into the world with personal and positive gifts, with the hip, handmade look and feel of the California lifestyle.

5、Dogeared Brand Promise
Our company vision has been consistent since Dogeared was founded in 1991. We are believers in being kind to the planet, to the community, and to each other. We don't just talk about Karma… We live Karma every day and believe that what we put out into the world comes back to us. We see it coming back to us in the success of our company and the way people around the world connect to our jewelry.
All Dogeared jewels and gifts are handmade in the USA. We are committed to creating jobs in our community- beginning at Dogeared, and extending to the local artisans and vendors we partner with by sourcing our materials here in the US.
Everything we put out into the world is designed with the planet in mind. We are on a constant search for newer, more ways of doing business. All of our charms are hand cast in recycled sterling silver. We use recycled card stock and our boxes are made from recycled cardboard. We have incorporated repurposed leather, recycled glass, recycled saris, sustainable hemp thread, and even corn plastic into our collection. Being made in the USA means fewer miles travelled and a smaller carbon footprint. And every jewel is produced in the most environmentally responsible way possible -- by hand, in our southern California studio.
Part of the Dogeared philosophy is that we GIVE better. We have partnerships with incredible organizations that work very hard to improve our community, our planet, and our well-being. We choose grassroots organizations that are passionate about creating social change, and work with them to heal, educate, and support people around the world.
