Do you have special pieces from a loved one in your jewelry box that brings back special memories every time you see them?
After my Mother-in-law passed away, I asked for the jewelry the sisters didn't want. For two years her rings sat on my dresser in a little crystal bowl next to a tiny box with cuff links that belonged to my Father-in-law. As I walked by them, I would often think of the cuff links and wonder what could I do with them. I knew my husband wouldn't wear them, but they were just so special.
Finally, two years later it clicked that I should make earrings out of them! I surprised my sister-in-law with them on Mothers Day and she was so touched. Creating memories through jewelry is something I'm passionate about and just one of the reasons I founded Creative Jewelry by Marcia.
Here's my story...
When I turned 60, I decided I didn't want to be that 80 year old woman wondering what I could've done with my jewelry business. It was at that time I saw a fatefully placed Facebook ad encouraging me to take the next step... and I did. In January of 2018 my journey began and things got serious. In a little over a year I re-branded my business and created a website with three new collections. As of 2018, I donate 5% of every sale to a local organization that helps survivors of domestic violence.
I also decided to go back to school to take metal smith classes at the university. It was a bit scary going back to school at 60, knowing I'd be the older student in class. I learned how to do the things I had only dreamed about doing... Soldering, setting stones, using a jeweler's saw and so much more! This has opened up a whole new world to me. I'll no longer be the 80 year old women wondering what if. Instead I'll be that 80 year old women taking classes at the university fulfilling my passion for creativity. What's your dream for the next 20 years?
My inspiration comes from the materials I work with and my surroundings. I don't follow trends. I create unique and asymmetrical designs to fit your individual style. You deserve jewelry that's as beautiful and unique as you. Each design is different, therefore you can choose the one that speaks to you.

Joni Martin - Mineral Point, WI
I have purchased many of Marcia’s pieces and enjoy them all. Some have been for gifts (which have been well received) and others for myself. Whenever I go to an Art Fair that Marcia is at, I am sure to come home with an addition to my “Marcia Collection.” The jewelry is unique, attractive, well made and comfortable to wear. Besides her jewelry, Marcia is a wonderful person and stands behind her collection. She makes any necessary adjustments, or repairs to items I have harmed. I strongly recommend trying her jewelry; you won’t be disappointed.
