Designer Faith Marcus spent fifteen years in executive management and merchandising with world renowned luxury brand fashion houses Yves Saint Laurent and Louis Vuitton in Paris, Madrid, New York, Miami and Beverly Hills.
With Yves Saint Laurent, Faith worked closely with legendary designer Andrée Putman and styled and hosted numerous fashion shows debuting Yves Saint Laurent's Rive Gauche prêt-a-porter (ready to wear) and was a buyer for one of the Rive Gauche boutiques.
During her time with Louis Vuitton where she was the North American liaison to their Paris corporate headquarters, in addition to marketing activities, Faith single handedly implemented a national North American training program that entailed salesmanship, customer service and product presentation. She also conducted training programs for senior Managers and Executives, and as a result of all of her ingenuity, she received a commendation from the CEO and her division (North America) became the Best Division of a Global Company.
"I always loved gemstones. Drawing from my design and aesthetic background, I decided to create a necklace for myself. I wanted something that I hadn’t seen before, anywhere. I immediately sensed that the gemstones had healing attributes beyond their intrinsic beauty. I feel my designs appeal to elegant women everywhere. And it is my intention to empower these women through these designs."
Faith, as an entrepreneur, created and owned a vintage décor business, specializing in mid-century modern, French and Italian antiques, furniture and accessories.
Rounding out her experience, and to better understand herself and the creative process, Faith studied Feng Shui, Color Therapy, Yoga, Meditation, Empowerment and Self Awareness, and several Spiritual and Metaphysical disciplines. Faith has traveled extensively throughout Europe, North, Central and South America, The Middle East, West Indies, The Caribbean and South Pacific. She enjoys observing the indigenous cultures of each county and learning about their unique creative expressions and contributions.
Faith designs and creates all her jewelry by hand in her California studio. Her one-of-a-kind jewelry collection was showcased at The Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas from 2010 to 2012. Focusing all of her experience, wisdom and vision into her fine jewelry collectibles, Faith delivers beauty, elegance and empowerment to the wearer of her original creations the world over.
