FEATURED DESIGNER :
Jill Platner has been making and designing
jewelry and sculpture for over 20 years. Since
1993, her jewelry designs have been sold at
Barneys New York, Twist, Bergdorf Goodman
and other retailers worldwide. In 1998, Jill
opened her flagship jewelry store and studio
on Crosby Street in NYC.
Fluidity and an ergonomic quality are
signature elements of Jill’s jewelry design;
the way a piece moves and feels on the body
is key to her process.
Each collection’s conception begins with
“Gallery“ pieces, wearable sculptural works
that are signed, numbered, and produced in
limited editions. The look and feel of these
pieces act as inspiration for the entire
The movement of metal, a key element to
Jill's work is showcased in her large-scale
metal sculptures. Made from copper, bronze,
and steel, these pieces range in size from 4
feet to over 20 feet tall. Platner’s distinctive
forms, connections, and hinging techniques
defy the weight and size of the material,
enabling incredible movement and
interactivity with the viewer.
For Jill, whether making jewelry or sculpture,
her personal approach is the same. All work
is made only by hand and using local
production, ensuring the highest quality and
craftsmanship for which she is known.
