Ileana Makri’s blades of grass





Green and the Greek sun in the Grass collection by Ileana Makri: gold and emeralds with a pinch of champagne diamonds ♦ ︎

The Greek islands, immersed in an intense blue of Mediterranean Sea, seem burned to the tourists who crowd their sunny beaches during the summer. But actually they are green the rest of the year. The summer sun and the green of the trees inspired jewelry designer Ileana Makri to design the Grass collection. The grass, in fact, gives shape to jewels, with long strands covered with emeralds, or in gold like those burned by the summer sun, with some sparkle of champagne diamonds, like the foam of the waves that break on the shoreline.

Ileana Makri, in fact, has a great passion for travel, but in the first place still remains the land where Western culture was born, Greece. After graduating in Business Administration, the designer chose to follow her true passion and studied jewelry design at the Gia (Gemological Institute of America in Santa Monica). It was a successful choice: from Athens, her jewelry was immediately sold by Barneys in New York. So many collections later, Ileana has won fans like Uma Thurman, Jennifer Lopez, Heidi Klum, Lenny Kravitz, Faith Hill, Rita Wilson, Ashley Olsen, Courtney Cox and Debra Messing.
