Jillery designs began on a whim in a loft in Greenwich Village. Her designs quickly caught on and Jill began selling to stores and fashionable galleries in the New York area. What began as a hobby soon became a sensation. Later, Jill shifted her attention from jewelry to housewares and focused on transforming ordinary, and sometimes dull household items into fun, funky and most important–functional art. What keeps the work unique is Jill's unwavering commitment to a "hands-on" quality approach to all of her designs and products. Each piece is hand-made by skilled artisans in her Greenwich Village studio. Jill is the originator of this sophisticated, yet whimsical style.
