Ilene Schwartz

" I use line and negative space when creating my jewelry. I strive for simplicity in classic feminine forms; always keeping in mind the piece is meant to be worn."

Ilene Schwartz's 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 figurative and playful yet infinitely wearable. Her jewelry is a juxtaposition of the unusual and unique beauty of gemstones nature has created (sparkly drusy, patterned fossilized stones, multi-colored opals) with simple classic settings.

Schwartz's work is hand fabricated. She loves the transformation of sheet and wire into dimensional form. Bezels are individually constructed for the unique stones Schwartz uses. Much of the work is given a soft matte finish and additional texture is added by chasing or engraving on small elements in the different pieces. Schwartz's ability to combine texture and color is her version of painting.

Ilene Schwartz has been making jewelry in one form or another since she was six years old. She holds an associates degree in graphics and a BFA in metals from Tyler School of Art at Temple University. Schwartz worked for a number of years at small family-owned jewelry businesses developing her skills before striking out on her own.
