Liztech


For over twenty five years Jill Elizabeth and Scott MacLaren have used mirrored chrome, vintage stones, glass beads, metal components and magnetic wire to create a most unique line of jewelry. Out of their Pennsylvania studio come miniature works of art. Each pin design tells its own very memorable story and it is included on a decorative card.

Jill Elizabeth remembers the "floor sweeps". Those were the days when the fledgling jewelry designer swept the grimy, liquor bottle-strewn floors of New York City's bead merchants for whatever had fallen to the floor....

Jill Elizabeth doesn't do "floor sweeps" anymore. Now the entrepreneur, who dropped her last name from her professional moniker, buys by the gross from a sprawling warehouse in Providence, RI, "the costume jewelry capital of the US." The company began in 1984 by recycling old costume jewelry and today has a mailing list of more than 15,500 customers. The Liztech line has different pin designs and earring shapes that are all handmade. The pieces are inspired by the American Southwest, Egyptian and Indian mythology.

Liztech is a member of the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen.
