Company Overview

A business built on teamwork, collaboration, and connections

It all began with our founder, Julie Newman, wanting to create beautifully designed products that she would actually want to buy. What better way to solve that problem than to start your own licensing agency (with a newborn baby, no less).  And thus, Jewel was born.

After a few years, Jewel had a burgeoning roster of distinctive artists and a need to grow the team. A chance encounter with Ilana Wilensky at a coffee shop led to a lasting partnership that has seen the agency experience double-digit growth year over year.

Today we are a leading global agency with an incredible team who are passionate about building brands, supporting artists, celebrating diversity, and bringing beautifully designed products to market.
