She had to use her imagination to fill her free time, especially in the long years of civil war, when she was stuck at home. Her father had a workshop underneath their house where she spent most of her time, discovering his tools and his collections from all around the world. This sense of creativity pushed her to continue in this field. Marcelle graduated from Alba with a master degree in advertising, and worked for a few years in advertising. She wasn’t really satisfied as she felt limited in terms of creativity. After a rewarding experience in the artistic department of a fashion magazine for women, she was ready to start her own business. Marcelle was always attracted to jewelry design and used to design her own. She received many compliments regarding them. Endowed with a strong creative direction and an electric taste for everything that is trendy, this pushed her to create her own line of simple, affordable and personalized jewelry. Marcelle created her own brand in 2003 and named it mAc design. {more}
