    Maya Angelou "A Woman is..." Medallion Necklace

    Made by Hand in Culver City, California

    • Developed in conjunction with the family of Maya Angelou, this beautiful and powerful piece is imbued with the meaning and significance of her life and experience. It's a thoughtful way to wear a symbol of her inspiration everywhere you go.

      "Just like moons and like suns,
      With the certainty of tides,
      Just like hopes springing high,
      Still I'll rise."

      - Dr. Maya Angelou

      Inspired by Southern California's free spirited, natural beauty and the fervent belief that "what goes around comes around", each Dogeared piece is handcrafted locally with respect for the planet and in partnership with a community of companies using business as a force for good.

      "(Maya Angelou's) words are what really drive what we did and I think that we honored who she was and it’s exciting. It’s a really beautiful collection, powerful to the wearer. She is an icon for me and this is really a dream come true."Founder Marcia Maizel-Clarke
