At the Heart of Her Craft

Marcia Poirier’s wampum shell jewelry began as a fun project but grew into so much more- a thriving business, a creative outlet and, most importantly, the source of a deep bond between the artisan and her husband. By Kyle Mullin for New Brunswick’s Telegraph Journal, August 21 2010

Marcia Poirier’s pulse raced at the sound of the rising tide. For the first time, she had found her heart.

As the chilly, foaming seawater lapped against her toes, rings of gleaming purple stripes popped amongst the endless identical grains of sand. Marvelling at the symmetrical curves that made it look like a valentine, she rushed to scoop up the little shell.

Poirier knew instantly that with a little crude cutting she could transform it into a heart-shaped pendant. But she had no idea it would become her obsession over the next decade.
