There is nothing more exciting than discovering unique, trendy products and finding out more about people who create them. Today, we are going to have a look at Ilanit, a minimalist jewelry brand based in San Diego, California.

Founded by Ilanit Shalev, a glass artist originally from Israel, Ilanit focuses on statement jewelry and accessories for a modern, sophisticated woman who is looking for one-of-a-kind pieces.

It's All in the Details

The line, best described as radiant, creative and artistic, includes a large variety of products: necklaces, earrings, unisex bracelets, and rings. All of them are heavily influenced by Ilanit's passion for art and her willingness to combine a myriad of materials together and to experiment with different techniques. The final result is impressive — vibrant yet wearable pieces that are designed with great attention to detail.

Spice Up Your Life

Elegant long necklaces feature fused glass rectangle pendants in vibrant colours, ranging from marble blue to sunny yellow (pictured below). They can be worn with cocktail dresses for a stylish night out or with simple, casual clothes if you feel like adding a subtle touch of glamour to your everyday style.

All pieces are very versatile and, depending on your clothes, they can easily create a desired mood and transform your look from day to night. Statement jewelry in bright colours can also lighten up a neutral colour palette and bring more life to your outfit. Have a look at our styling ideas below.

Ilanit Shalev creates her minimalist yet very powerful sculptures by casting glass. Her influences vary from a passionate study of colors, transparency and translucency, all main qualities of glass. She has studied at both, Pilchuck, WA and Corning, NY, to challenge herself, improve her knowledge about glass and learn more techniques. Eastern and Western world influences have played a major part in her creations. Her inspiration continues to grow from her experience within and flourish with the beauty of life. Residing today in San Diego, CA, her work can be found at Habatat Galleries, MI, as well as her homeland Israel.
