For years now, Marcia's design mantra and brand core has been summed up in two words: Elegantly Bold. It is how she describes her signature aesthetic, the woman she designs for and how she wants to make her clients feel: feminine, but powerful. It is also her official hashtag, so embrace sophistication with an edge and explore #ElegantlyBold!
As a child, one of Marcia's favorite hobbies was collecting different types of stones. She stored them in a little collectors box. Today, that box still occupies a special space in her closet - and now, she knows why.
Marcia designed her first piece of fine jewelry after receiving her Masters in Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania's Graduate School of Design. After being unable to find a double ring that she really loved she decided to take on the design challenge herself and called the piece Asymmetrics + Diamonds. A colleague found the design to be compelling and encouraged her to make a submission to an international design competition based in Milan. She did, and a year later she was at the Gala in Lake Como receiving a Golden Award for it.
After winning the award, people approached her to design more pieces - she identified it as a business opportunity and started her own company. Marcia won another award in Italy the following year and was selected as one of the top 30 emerging designers in New York City by Design Entrepreneurs NYC. She was also nominated for the 2014 Mort Abelson New Designer of the Year Award by Jewelers of America. Marcia's pieces have graced the runways of New York Fashion Week and the red carpet at the Met Gala. Her work has also been featured in WWD, ELLE Magazine and VOGUE.
She made her Trade Show Circuit debut in Las Vegas as a 2015 JCK Rising Star and received the first-ever annual Design Center Editor's Choice Award for "Best in Show," presented by W Magazine's Accessories and Jewelry Director Claudia Mata. "The award recognized a designer who breaks the boundaries of innovation and originality, while combining new trends and classic ideas, celebrates imagination, and excels at craftsmanship," JCK said.
Looking back, it should come as no surprise how different interests throughout her life from childhood to adulthood – stones, design, branding, and business – have converged to the point where she is now.
All pieces are made of 18k gold and/or sterling silver with precious or semi-precious stones. Marcia has her own collections and custom work for private clients is also available upon inquiry.
We hope you enjoy our work as much as she enjoys designing it for you.
