Ilene Schwartz

"I use high karat gold and a variety of stones with unusual textures and patterns to create classic feminine forms. By keeping the shapes simple, the contrast of textures and the combination of colors remain the focus of the design."

Ilene Schwartz's work is a combination of high karat gold and a variety of beautiful stones with unusual textures and patterns. She enjoys playing with color, texture and shape, and concentrates on keeping things simple.

With some pieces, Schwartz feels she is painting by combining stones of various colors and textures with metal that is textured and shaped to form something beautiful and wearable. When a piece is finished it may be evocative of images in nature, landscapes or figures. But while Schwartz is working on the piece, it is the graphic or visual image she is mostly concerned with.

Ilene Schwartz's work is a juxtaposition of the unusual and unique beauty of stones nature has created, (i.e. sparkly drusy, patterned fossilized stones, multi-colored opals.), with simple classic settings.
