Dogeared was founded in 1991 by designer Marcia Maizel-Clarke and husband Merlin Clarke. Inspired by the cool, carefree California lifestyle, Marcia began creating jewels with personal, positive and meaningful messages: Little philosophies about life, words of celebration, inspiration and love... jewels that speak! Each piece is designed and handcrafted in the energy-filled Los Angeles studio where Marcia and her wildly creative team collaborate passionately and purposefully, bringing California love and the Dogeared lifestyle to people everywhere. Dogeared jewels are simple, modern and versatile. They are big believers in the idea that great style should be effortless, authentic and real. Our design philosophy is to keep it simple, make it special, and create jewels for every mood and every occasion. What goes around comes around. Dogeared strives to make a positive impact by handcrafting everything locally, being kind to the planet, and partnering with non-profit organizations that share their vision of a better world. As a certified B-Corporation, Dogeared is committed to developing better business practices, working with dignity and purpose, and using business as a force for good. ​​​
