GREECE - For Greek born Ileana Makri, mageia - enchantment or magic - has been her muse since she began her jewelry line over a decade ago. Inspired and fascinated by meaningful symbols which cross cultural borders, her collection is a meticulously crafted interpretation of such mystical and figurative images. Particularly intrigued by the evil eye - believed by many to offer protection from negative forces - this symbol is seen in many of her creations in the form of diamonds, sapphires and rubies. Refined and understated, her jewelry also has an underlying 'rock chic' and is worn by Heidi Klum, Jennifer Lopez, Ashley Olsen, Lenny Kravitz and Courteney Cox.
