What a year 2019 has been for Marcia Adams! She recently left her secure 9-5 job to pursue her passion of being a creative entrepreneur and was able to catch the eyes of the Senior Editor of the Lifestyle section of the local newspaper! Not a bad year thus far indeed! If you are a Fashionista or a woman who likes one of a kind pieces and standing out, you need to meet Marcia Adams and her namesake Jewelry and Accessories wares “Marcia Adams Beauty Lies Within.” The pieces she creates are as fun and bold as her personality!

There is a certain ease that comes from speaking with Marcia about her pieces as she treats them all like her “babies” and tell a story of how they were made and what they will go with and that you are sure to get a lot of stares in the best way possible when you step out in one of her statement necklaces.

A statement would be an understatement to describe these pieces as they are like nothing you’ve ever seen. They are a beautiful combination of fabric, textures, buttons, ruffles, and fringes and one could say these are not “your grandma’s pearls”. The new designer was able to give an insight into her life as a Designer and share her creative journey thus far.

What is one important life lesson you've learned thus far since being in business?
