Liztech vintage costume jewelry
Jill Elizabeth, designer and creator of Liztech, has been in the jewelry business since childhood. As an adult, she traveled around the country, working with various artists and studying jewelry manufacturing technology. In search of new materials, she came across a chrome-plated architectural laminate used to make mirror panels. Combining interest in world mythology and new material, she first carved Egyptian hieroglyphs from it. Then, wrapped them in colored magnetic wire and the beads. As a result, she received unusual jewelry that enthralled jewelry lovers. Jill showed her jewelry at numerous craft exhibitions and fairs in New York, and received public acclaim. As a result of increased demand for her jewelry, Liz and her husband Scott McLaren created their own brand – Liztech Jewelry in 1998. In addition, they opened their own art gallery, where they exhibited not only their works, but also the works of other artists. To date, the works of Jill Elizabeth adorn museum shops and galleries throughout the country.
Unfortunately, Scott passed away in 2014, and Jill Elizabeth struggled to do business without him. However, in the fall of 2017, she announced the end of an era and the desire to sell the building at 95 Crystal St, PA. Thus, the production of jewelry marked Liztech, which lasted for 20 years, ceased to exist in 2018.
