Los Angeles, CA
February 29, 2012 (PRWEB) February 29, 2012 -- Dogeared Jewels & Gifts, a trendsetting fashion brand known for their innovative designs and cool California aesthetic, is proud to present the 2012 Jewel Box Collection. Each piece is unique to Dogeared and all are handcrafted in Los Angeles.
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.
“Jewel Box is all about found objects. Turning our personal collections - things we’ve kept because they have special meaning or just because we think they’re beautiful - into a Dogeared collection,” explained founder and designer, Marcia Maizel-Clarke. “We hand cast real objects into pendants and beads. A crystal, a branch, even a Dogeared healing gem from a line we sold a few years ago. They’ve been reinvented here into something completely new.”
Jewel Box 2012 necklaces, pendants, bracelets, and earrings made with brass, charcoal sterling, gold, leather, and silk. Retail prices range from $34 to $92.
“Since we are handmade in the USA and design everything in-house, we can create design elements out of anything that inspires us. It’s really, really fun,” continued Maizel-Clarke. “The Jewel Box look is simple but substantial. It’s the uncomplicated, California aesthetic
Dogeared is known for, that our more fashion-minded customers really connect with and can layer into their personal style.”
