I am Kristina Marcelle and I am the designer and creator of Charlie and Marcelle. Charlie was my mother who passed away from breast cancer when I was 17 years old. She is my inspiration for all that I do and all that I wish to achieve. She passed along to me her love of jewelry, her love of laughter, her love of anything sweet and delicious, but most of all her love of making people smile.
The mission for my jewelry line is to inspire magic. It is to remind us that all things are possible if we just simply believe in ourselves. Sometimes all it takes is to wear a piece of jewelry to remind ourselves of whatever it is we are seeking each time we look at it or at the very least dress up in something cute and feel more "fabulous" (as my mom would say). Jewelry has a funny way of making us feel good, which makes it a necessity as far as I'm concerned and I'm sure Charlie would agree.
In 2009, after working in the retail industry for over 10 years, I decided to combine two of my passions. My love for jewelry and my desire to connect with people. I created Charlie and Marcelle which is a meaningful and magical jewelry buying experience. I truly believe each piece of jewelry should tell a story or hold a memory near and dear to us. Each piece is made with an enormous amount of love and care. I specialize in amulet jewelry made with intention. Whether it be luck, love, protection or prosperity. I believe all jewelry should be meaningful and magical yet simple enough to wear everyday. I now work from home and have the best of both worlds. Raising my two boys and creating jewelry with one goal in mind. To make people smile.
