Handcrafted and Made In The USA are finally being recognized as important by consumers. But they have been the heart and soul of Dogeared for over 20 years
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 05, 2012
Dogeared will showcase Spring 2012 jewelry designs and catalogs at New York ENK Accessorie Circuit Show, LA Market, New York International Gift Fair, and Project Las Vegas. Innovative new designs stay true to Dogeared’s cool California aesthetic, and jewels continue to be 100% handmade in the USA.
Dogeared Forever showcases the latest designs along with bestselling classics and new additions to the brand’s famous line of handmade original charms. The iconic Karma, Healing Gems and Make A Wish collections continue to evolve, and new groups include Love for Valentine’s Day, Mom for Mother’s Day and more.
All Dogeared charms are hand-cast in Los Angeles using recycled sterling silver, and gold ones are individually hand-dipped. Along with their signature style, artisanal quality and craftsmanship have become synonymous with the Dogeared brand.
“Handcrafted and Made In The USA are finally being recognized as important by consumers. But they have been the heart and soul of Dogeared for over 20 years,” comments owner and designer Marcia Maizel-Clarke.
Dogeared Jewel Box is inspired by treasures from unlikely places; found in nature, collected in curio cabinets or even discovered in the designers’ own jewelry boxes. These real objects have been hand-cast in metal to create unique new design elements, and crafted into jewels that embody the uncomplicated, organic look and feel Dogeared is known for.
Dogeared Bracelet Bar offers a colorful, layer-worthy extravaganza that captures the playful energy of spring. Using metallic and natural leathers, hand-dyed silks, a rainbow of gemstones and earthy wood beads, there are literally hundreds of options ready to be infused with one’s own personal style.
Dogeared continues to set trends and offer an incredibly versatile product line, and the Spring 2012 catalogs and collections prove it. At the same time, they continue their 20-year legacy of practicing business mindfully. “Our goal is to infuse positive energy and love into each jewel,” explains Marcia Maizel-Clarke. “That’s why we create them individually, by hand. It’s why we give back to nonprofit groups year round, why we use Earth friendly materials wherever possible, and why we remain committed to being handmade in the USA.”
Retail prices range from approximately $20 to $110. The wholesale catalogs are viewable online at http://www.dogearedwholesale.com.
