DARLING MARCELLE MAKES UNCOMMON ACCESSORIES FOR UNCOMMON PEOPLE.

My name is Kaelen Van Cura.  I initially started Darling Marcelle because I wanted to have more fun getting dressed. When I couldn’t find the spectacular accessories I dreamed of, I started making them myself.  As I began wearing my new creations in public, everyone kept stopping to ask me where I got my necklaces, and so I started making enough to share.

A FEW FACTS ABOUT ME:

I have a BFA in Painting from the Kansas City Art Institute.

Croatia was the first country I ever traveled to outside of the US.

I have a separate stomach for fancy cocktails (not really, but I wish I did.)
