In just a decade Ileana has managed to create a brand that is liked all over the world. Ileana begun studying Business Administration, but later decided to follow her true passion and studied jewellery design at the G.I.A. Ileana is fascinated by multicultural symbols and their meaning. Her jewellery contains a range of mystical and figurative symbols in gold and gemstones. The underlying ‘rock chic’ inspiration makes her collections modern as well as timeless. Ileana Makri herself says that she creates jewellery for ‘no special occasion’, and therefore always can be worn.
