Venice and Violet Dogeared Jewelry

Meet Venice and Violet by Dogeared: Jewels With Inspiring Messages, Beauty and Charm

Marcia Maizel-Clarke, founder and creative force of the accessories brand Dogeared, has been capturing special moments through jewelry since she started the company in 1991. What began as a hobby selling her handmade jewelry at local California flea markets evolved into a brand synonymous with elevated style and meaningful messages, sold in major retail stores and specialty boutiques all over the world.

“It has never been just about jewelry,” said Marcia. “Dogeared stems from the meaning behind the jewelry.” 

Arriving in time to add special meaning and joy to the holiday season, Target and Dogeared have teamed up to deliver an exclusive new line for Target guests. Presenting: Venice and Violet by Dogeared.

“Our guests love newness and the sense of discovery that Target offers,” said Stacia Andersen, senior vice president of merchandising, apparel and accessories, Target. “We were drawn to Dogeared’s handcrafted jewelry —it’s the perfect way to add style and significance to any look—and we can’t wait to see how guests respond to the line they created just for Target.”

“Venice and Violet by Dogeared” got its name from the sun-kissed beaches of Southern California, and was created for women who want to make the most of every experience. The Venice and Violet by Dogeared assortment delivers on that with 18 delicate, elegant and inspirational necklaces that feature themed designs like “Believe in Yourself”, “Love You, Bestie” and “Lucky You.”

“We wanted the styles to reflect the essence of Venice and Violet, while remaining an easy purchase for Target guests; the designs are contemporary, impactful and fun,” said Marcia. “Creating this exclusive line for Target has been incredible. Target is a forward-thinking, design-driven company where style-conscious shoppers can discover great brands at incredible value. Guests are going to love gifting these new styles or adding them into their own collection!” 

Venice and Violet by Dogeared is now available in all Target stores and on for $39.99 each.
