How Dogeared Started

Dogeared is the brainchild of owner Marcia Maizel-Clarke, who started the company concept way back in 1991 in Southern California. Marcia believed that jewelry should be both meaningful and beautiful, and speak to the experiences, celebrations and milestones that each person has. The pieces from Dogeared each tell a story about self-expression, friendship, love, triumph and individuality. Marcia works to celebrate, connect and inspire each of her customers with simple and modern necklaces, earrings, rings, canvas tote bags and custom charms.

We love this philosophy!
