Ilene Schwartz has been making jewelry since she was six years old. She graduated with a BFA in Metals from Tyler School of Art, and still can’t imagine doing anything else.
Her work is a combination of 18k gold, sterling silver and a variety of beautiful gemstones. Clean contemporary earrings and pendants suggest a happy movement that is both figurative and playful yet infinitely wearable.
Ilene juxtaposes unusual, uniquely beautiful gemstones (sparkly drusy, patterned fossilized stones, multi-colored opals) with simple, classic settings.
