Who is Hilz & Heitz?

Hilz & Heitz is a collaboration that hails from Queens, New York. Created by Jamie Merchan and Michael Inoa, the two friends decided to pay homage to the neighborhoods in which they reside. 

Jamie lives in Jackson Heights and is a cad-cam jewelry designer. Her passion for jewelry and precious stones stems from her childhood spent in her father's jewelry shop where she was able to see and learn first-hand the intricate detail and determination that goes into creating each unique piece. Raised in a family of jewelers and designers, she spent her life surrounded by creativity. With a degree in Communications she started her career in the film industry before ultimately rediscovering her love of jewelry.  

Michael, who lives in Forest Hills, is a thirty-something who has been in the retail industry for over 18 years. Learning both the front and back-end of the industry has helped develop his entrepreneurial spirit. With a strong passion and following of fashion houses, trends and the retail climate, he wanted to create something unique of his own. The partnership with Jamie was only natural.
