Los Angeles Jewelry designer, Hilary Beane drew the attention of Hollywood celebrities from the very start. Following a successful career as a model and then actress, she created custom jewelry pieces for Rock Royalty such as, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Ozzie Osborne and crafted spectacular stage-worthy jeweled glasses for Elton John. She has a growing following of the Hollywood elite, having created one of a kind necklaces for the late Elizabeth Taylor, Faye Dunaway, Maria Shriver and Oprah, to name just a few. She’s also created special pieces for stage shows of everyone from Liza Minelli to the late, great Miles Davis.
She works with costume designers on stylish TV shows like Entourage, Brothers and Sisters and countless films. Hilary has created one of a kind pearl bracelets for Angelina Jolie, custom pieces for Maggie Gyllenhaal, Lisa Kudrow and Zoe Saldana who recently sported Hilary Beane gold marquise earrings on the red-carpet. And in a new show called "Political Animals", actress Ellen Burstyn, wore an HB textured oval choker and earrings.
Ms. Beane's designs have been spotlighted on the covers and editorial pages of American and Italian Vogue, Bazaar, In-Style, Town & Country and Brides Magazines. She's been honored by her own industry winning the cover of Modern Jeweler Magazine and is featured in the prestigious book, Tahitian Pearls.
In addition to jewelry, she's ornamented eyewear for the renowned boutique LA Eyeworks and produced collections for several accessories companies.
Beane continually donates her time and work to several charitable organizations. Her jewelry was a major draw at a recent Beverly Hills fundraiser for foster youth, "The HerShe Group”, and at Malibu's "City Hearts" organization benefit.
While often working in the rarified world of illusion and fantasy, she strives to make certain her imagination, design philosophy and hand-crafted excellence, inspire and delight, like all things of timeless beauty.
Beane welcomes commissions, as well as updates and redesigns of those estate or vintage pieces sitting idle in the jewelry box.
