Being the youngest daughter of the Spanish jeweller Jesus Garcia, Marina was brought up among jewels and pearls, pliers and chisels. Jewelry was so natural to her, that when she decided about her career and future, jewellery was the last thing in her mind. So she went to college, and for some years she had a dull and steady office work in a big company in Madrid.
Meanwhile, her brothers, Julio and Jorge, kept the family tradition, and continued working in the small jewellery workshop where they crafted beautiful jewellery pieces, with a team of experienced craftsmen.
Her brothers wanted to take a step ahead and try new experiences in jewellery, so they thought than the point of view of a woman in the company would help, especially a family woman.
The idea of leaving Madrid and going back home sounded quite attractive to Marina, and finally she returned to Zaragoza, to the family company, and started studying gemmology, design, and first of all, learning the profession at home.
Soon she felt that she had to try something different. Of course, she loved the classical diamond jewellery that they had always crafted at home, but this kind of expensive jewellery was not the kind she liked to wear every day. So Marina tried her own way, to design affordable jewellery, but full of glamour and luxury, because it was crafted at home, by the same expert team of goldsmiths that elaborate the diamond jewellery that her brothers produced.
In the last years Marina Garcia has become one of the most renowned jewellery designers in Spain and Europe, and the essence of her work is the mixture of the best goldsmith tradition, with new materials, with exquisite taste, and the creation of subtle textures on silver and gold.
