All of the jewelry from Marelle's line are made with vintage jewelry. Many rescued and well loved pieces that time forgot, are given a stunning new life. They are turned into a timeless piece of art. The supplies for this particular line were acquired by a little lady called Mama. She and her husband collected vintage jewelry for over 65 years. After he died Marelle met Mama at the local flea market, trying to make a little extra money for her medications. Her husband would fix the broken pieces and she would sell them. They had a rare, endearing, bond. Mama spoke often of her love for her late husband, so touched by the stories, Marelle bought the entire lot of jewelry. Mama was delighted. In fact, most of Marelle's supplies come from the senior citizens and disabled people trying to get by at the flea market. A great help to those less fortunate, and a way of recycling a bit of history. Also, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of her jewelry go to fund her Hopscotch exhibit for the blind.
