Lights! Camera! Jewelry! -- All About Lizzie Scheck
From day one, Lizzie Scheck has been destined for the red carpet. Whether having a successful career in film and television production or designing show-stopping jewelry for celebrity style icons, Lizzie's talent and star quality is undeniable.
A former casting director -- she received an Emmy Award nomination for her work on the critically acclaimed ABC television program "Once and Again" -- Lizzie channeled her creative talents to design jewelry, a passion she realized while studying in Florence during college.
Lizzie began designing jewelry as a hobby, but her talent was quickly recognized and she soon turned it into a business, aptly named Lizzie Scheck Jewelry. Armed with her innate sense of style and her knack for putting actors in the right scenes and accessories, Lizzie was nominated for an ACE “Rising Star” award from the Accessories Council in 2002. Always the trendsetter, Lizzie's already devoted following hit cult status when Sarah Jessica Parker donned her pave diamond horseshoe necklace on HBO's Sex and the City.
Since arriving on the jewelry scene, Lizzie has developed a committed celebrity clientele, and is regularly sought after for her unique and personal designs. Whether bridesmaids' gifts for Kate Beckinsale or personal pieces for Ashley Judd and Amanda Bynes, the stars know who to call! Her designs routinely grace the silver screen, seen in the acclaimed feature films such as Lost in Translation and Shall We Dance. No stranger to the red carpet, Lizzie was recently recognized by Life & Style Magazine as Best Star Jeweler in its 2005 Stylemaker issue.
Never a fashion diva, Lizzie's charming personality is reflected in each of her designs – warm, personable and approachable pieces that instantly draw people in and make them feel special. Her feminine and often whimsical designs are based on her juxtaposition of the vivid colors and rich textures seen on the streets of her old hometown New York (and new home, Hollywood) with the classic notions of adornment from her Italian studies. Handcrafted in platinum, gold, diamonds and colorful precious gemstones, Lizzie's pieces are a glittering collection of personal emblems that are delicate, layerable and completely wearable.
Lizzie designs to reflect and enhance the unique style of the wearer. "Being a designer is all about being an individual. I never follow a trend simply because everyone is craving it -- I design pieces that I believe in and that represent me," says Lizzie. "Style is a means of expression and is how you present yourself to the world."
Lizzie Scheck Jewelry has also hit the retail red carpet, selling in top luxury department stores such as Neiman Marcus, Barneys New York and fine boutiques across the country and internationally. Lizzie is a member of the Women's Jewelry Association and was a keynote speaker at the prestigious Gemological Institute of America. Previously, Lizzie was co-founder of Mia & Lizzie.
