Marti Perkins is a Native Texan who has lived in North Texas for the last 29 years. Marti has 27 years of sales and marketing experience, and a Fashion Merchandising degree from Stephen F. Austin State University. Marti has also completed graduate course work at The University of North Texas, and has been trained in the Lost Wax Technique for Bronze and Silver Jewelry.
Her mission is to share God's word while keeping it simple; To give to others what is given to us every day: Grace, Mercy, Peace and Love.
Marti says, "My jewelry helps remind me to do the simple things and to share with others the Joy and Peace I have. My hope is that when you are wearing my jewelry and another person notices it, that it opens the door to share your FAITH in God! We are the only Bible that some people will ever read..."
Each piece by Marti Perkins Originals is inspired by blessings and God's work in the life of Marti Perkins and her family and friends. Each piece stands as a simple reminder of God's love and His message to His children. "Grace, mercy and peace from God the Father and Christ our Lord." (2 Timothy 1:2)
Stars such as Kimberly Schlapman, Reba McEntire, and Tina Wilkins wear and carry Marti Perkins Originals. Many Marti Perkins Originals were sold at the Trunk Show in New York (Saks Fifth Ave) during the CMA awards. However, Marti always says that her biggest honor comes from the friends and family who buy her creations and wear them to share the story of their faith.
