Hi, I’m Marcia, and I want to personally thank you for stopping by to check out my world. I am an artist (sculptor) by trade. I was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I got a bachelor’s degree in art education and spent the next two years developing my skills in sculpturing. In 1983 I set up a studio and started showing and selling my work all over the country, and a few years later I took the opportunity to set up a studio in the US. Life was great, work was plenty, and I met the love of my life. My husband and I opened up a shop in Pennsylvania, and I was living the dream. Then, a life-changing event smashed my reality to pieces. My back started to rapidly deteriorate, and a few years later, I had no choice but to close the doors on my business. I had to find a way out of my situation. But my issue turned out to be a blessing in disguise: I found out that no matter how big our challenges may be, we can overcome. My experience transformed how I see the world. More important, it gave my work a greater purpose. I learned that hope is a divine gift and self-confidence is more than a catchword. Now, with my physical difficulty under control, I’m back in my studio, but I no longer create work just to please the eyes. I design jewelry to promote women’s self-confidence by forging in silver wearable pieces with powerful meanings. Sure, my handcrafted sterling silver jewelry is one-of-a-kind to help you look and feel beautiful—but the gems have more to offer than what the eye can see. Cultures around the world believe crystals hold various metaphysical qualities that have a positive effect on the wearer. When I look into my customers’ eyes and see the self-worth they show while wearing my work, I feel humbled and inspired. I hope you enjoy your shopping experience and find your perfect pieces.
