IaM BY ILEANA MAKRI

Designer Ileana Makri was born in Greece and still resides there. A globetrotter at heart, she shares her time between Greece, London, Paris and New York City, allowing her to embrace and celebrate different cultures and landscapes within her craft.

Following her true passion of jewelry design, Ileana studied at the G.I.A. in Santa Monica and launched her signature jewelry line in 1996. In addition to her travels, Ileana continues to draw inspiration from multicultural symbols and their meaning, and is particularly intrigued by the 'evil eye', a symbol that in Mediterranean countries serves as protection from negative forces.

In addition to Ileana's fine jewelry collection, she has made her mark in the contemporary world of jewelry with the launch of her IaM collection, which Ylang 23 is proud to carry. With the same attention to detail and craftsmanship as her fine jewelry, she has introduced materials including sterling silver and bronze that, when mixed with Polki diamonds, rubies and sapphires, gives the IaM Collection a distinctive and alternative look and feel.
